Building a Better Nottingham
The two blocks of Winchester and Woodthorpe Courts have been refurbished by Nottingham City Homes for Nottingham City Council. The renovated apartment blocks are unrecognisable from their former selves and one only has to look at the newly renovated balcony spaces to see how well used they are, transforming the space and the lives of the residents who live there.
Designed by HLP Design, the buildings have been transformed into sustainable energy efficient homes and with the creation of the more useable private amenity space not only have they increased the value of the housing stock, but with the creation of this secondary façade, the primary façade behind it is protected from the elements, adding value by reducing maintenance costs. The 176 Windoor System 1000 balcony enclosures were installed by McKean Developments, who worked alongside Willmott Dixon to realise this stunning development.
