Sentinel make the final four in Premier Guarantee Excellence Awards

Sentinel Housing Association are really pleased to announce that they’ve made the final of the Premier Guarantee Excellence Awards, in the Social Housing Developments category, along with their partners Hill.

The awards celebrate the best of the construction industry and Sentinel’s regeneration of New Horizons in Oakridge, Hampshire will be competing for the award alongside social housing developments in Glasgow, south London and Edinburgh.

The £20m New Horizons regeneration project, to replace 90 outdated maisonettes with 190 new homes, began in July 2013. And the project is transforming a tired corner of Basingstoke into a vibrant new community, with improved open space, play areas and parking.

The first phase is due to be finished by March next year and the second in the spring of 2016. In total there’ll be 67 x 2-3 bedroom homes for low cost ownership, 69 x 2-3 bedroom homes for social rent and 54 x 2-4 bedroom homes for affordable rent.

Sentinel’s Development Director, Mike Shepherd, said, “It’s great to be shortlisted, along with our partners Hill, for the Premier Excellence Awards. The workmanship and attention to detail, on our new homes, is key to our ambition to deliver quality homes where people want to live. And working with Premier has really helped us achieve this. The shortage of affordable homes in the UK has led to a well publicised housing crisis over recent years, so we’re doing all we can to build high quality homes and vibrant, sustainable communities.”

The award ceremony will take place on Friday 14 November 2014 at London's iconic Heron Tower, the city's tallest commercial skyscraper.
