Cygnum Building Offsite are delighted to announce
the multi award winning Gold Smith Street, Norwich has won the 2019 RIBA Stirling
The social housing development of 105 ultra-low-energy homes for Norwich City Council, is the first social housing scheme to be shortlisted and win the coveted Stirling Prize. The 2019 RIBA Stirling Prize judges, chaired by Julia Barfield, praised Goldsmith Street “as a modest masterpiece. It is high-quality architecture in its purest most environmentally and socially-conscious form.
Cygnum Managing Director John Desmond stated…. “We are immensely proud of the major role Cygnum Building Offsite played in this project. We designed, manufactured and installed the highly insulated timber frame structures to a tight program and exceptionally high-performance standards. Our team were outstanding! Well done to Mikhail Riches and all involved”
RIBA President Alan Jones added: “Faced with a global climate emergency, the worst housing crisis for generations and crippling local authority cuts, Goldsmith Street is a beacon of hope. It is commended not just as a transformative social housing scheme and eco-development, but a pioneering exemplar for other local authorities to follow.”
Installation of a large factory insulated panel on one of our terraced houses for a new hashtag social housing development. Noting the size of the frame, this completely encloses the front of the house with one panel thus allowing for both precision and speed.
