Regional recognition for Framework building
A Framework building for homeless people in Lincoln has been recognised as one of the best social or affordable new housing developments in the East Midlands.
The LABC (Local Authority Building Control Service) Awards, held on Friday, recognise the best examples of partnership between developers, contractors and local councils. The Corner House is a development of one bedroom flats designed to host a specialist alcohol treatment service, was named as one of the regional finalists.
The citation on the awards certificate mentions "building excellence in the delivery of outstanding construction and workmanship."
The specialist residential alcohol support service delivered from the Corner House will close later in the year, but the building will continue to house homeless and vulnerable people over the coming years.
The Corner House was designed by architect Geoff Carter.
