WINNER – BREEAM AWARDS 2017

MAR 13

Rowlinson Constructions are proud to announce that their scheme in Ancoats, Manchester has won the Residential category at the BREEAM Awards 2017. The awards celebrate exceptional sustainable places and projects from around the world.

Tribe Apartments achieved a BREEAM Outstanding post-construction rating for three separate 13 storey blocks of flats providing 192 modern, spacious apartments.

The domestic refurbishment project won “The Sustainable Housing Scheme of the Year” at the Housing Excellence Awards 2016.

The existing 1950’s construction was transformed with a wrap-around thermally efficient façade, centralised heating and hot water via a biomass boiler with heat meters and LED lighting. Internal water consumption reduced by 25% and CO2 emissions by 65% compared to a new build apartment. The judges noted the strong commitment from the client and project team, and how the upgrade makes the most of the existing materials and structure as well as opportunities for enhancement.

Congratulations to the entire project team.
