Bradbury Gardens wins two building awards
Bradbury Gardens, National Star’s £6 million accommodation for young people with disabilities, has been presented with two prestigious building awards.
Based in Pittville, Cheltenham, Bradbury Gardens was fundraised for in partnership with the local community, trusts and foundations. It enables residents to live in small peer groups with access to areas for independent living, and provides a range of specialist facilities. These include ceiling tracking hoists, height adjustable kitchens and assistive technology. The accommodation was officially opened by Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Gloucester in 2015.
Now the development has scooped the Cheltenham Civic Trust Award for New Building Project, as well as a win in the Best Inclusive Building category for the West of England LABC Building Excellence Awards. The accolades are testament to architects Coombes:Everitt and construction company Speller Metcalfe working in close consultation with learners and staff.
