Classic Builders has won two of the 2020 Michelmores Property Awards – Project of The Year (Under £5M) and Best Residential Scheme (Under 35 Units). Chi Winder in Cornwall and Seaton Beach Apartments in Devon scooped the two coveted industry awards at the online ceremony on the 12th of November. 

As the Winner of the 2018 Michelmores Property Awards Heritage Project of The Year, Classic Builders appreciates the significance of winning two of the 2020 awards. Chi Winder, built for Coastline Housing Services, is a purpose-built homeless centre in Cornwall. Situated on the former South Crofty Mine site, the building encompasses 18 apartments, medical facilities, administrative offices, specially designed ‘moving-on’ units, training facilities and additional accommodation for those finding themselves in a housing crisis during extreme weather. Built over a period of 52 weeks for a budget of £2,100,000, the property has set a new standard for homeless housing services in the South West.

Seaton Beach Apartments, built for Seaton Beach Developments, is the United Kingdom’s first set of purpose-built PassivHaus Plus Apartments. Built over a period of 60 weeks to a budget of £2,400,000, the scheme is a pioneer for zero-carbon sustainable housing. Comprising of eight apartments and a fifth-floor Penthouse (valued at almost £1,000,000), the project has set a new benchmark for property standards and values in the popular South Devon town.

Classic Builders’ Business Development Manager Lewis Tolputt had this to add –

“Winning a MIchelmores Property Award is a great triumph but to win two is just incredible. These two awards could not have been for more different projects. They represent that irrelevant of location, scope or client, we consistently deliver on quality and commitment. We’d like to thank all our team and supply chain partners for their support. Most importantly though, we would like to thank our clients Coastline Housing Services and Seaton Beach Developments for providing us with the opportunity to build them award-winning projects.”
