Parkwood nominated for award


McPhillips’ Parkwood Extracare scheme for Wrekin Housing Trust has been nominated as a finalist in the Best Community Building category at the 2011 Local Authority Building Control Excellence Awards.  This recognises the effort that McPhillips’ construction team put into working with Telford & Wrekin Council Building Control in making sure that the development complied with the highest standards of safety, sustainability and accessibility.  This endorsement follows on from the “Secured by Design” status already awarded to the project by West Mercia Constabulary which is of particular importance given the vulnerability of some residents.

The development provides 54 high quality assisted living apartments in a community environment with all amenities within easy reach of residents.  We completed the £6.7m construction over a 54 weeks period during 2009/2010 and expediently dealt with all the complex issues which remained following the original contractors withdrawal from the project.
