Gerald Court, Burnley
The Gerald Court sheltered housing scheme was developed to replace an existing rundown apartment block with 40 new bungalow units on an adjacent site. It was also a pinnacle project in a wider masterplan for the Burnley area. The layouts of the bungalows all revolved around central courtyards which created valuable socialising areas.
The scheme also met code for sustainable homes Level 5 and received a Secured by Design accreditation.
The project won several awards including a silver medal from the 'Building for Life'.
