Hunt begins for Newtownards social housing architect

  • Comment

Clanmil Housing Association is seeking an architect for a 48-unit social housing scheme in Newtownards, County Down

Planned to meet Lifetime Homes, Secured by Design and Code for Sustainable Homes level 3 – the development will occupy a 1.5 hectare town centre brownfield site bounded by Newtownards Canal and the historic ‘Bawn Wall’ which is a scheduled monument.

According to the brief: ‘The site is about 350 metres from the town hall. The western boundary is comprised of a number of derelict terraced dwellings along the frontage of South Street which have been blocked up, and may have been incorporated into the warehouses behind.

‘The northern boundary consists of security fencing, while the southern boundary with the Newtownards canal is maintained by a low stone wall.’

Located around 16 kilometres east of Belfast, Newtownards (pictured) – which is known locally as Ards – has a population of around 28,000 people.

The design contract is expected to be worth around £300,000 and the scheme must include flood resilient design.

The deadline for requests to participate is 12noon on 31 August.
