Barratt Developments collects seven Built for Life commendations

Barratt Developments collects seven Built for Life commendations

Barratt Developments has been awarded seven Building for Life 12 commendations, presented by Planning Minister Nick Boles, during an event at Nottingham Trent University on 3rd April 2014.

Building for Life 12 (BfL12) is a government endorsed guide for developers to ensure new homes and their neighbourhoods are as attractive, functional and sustainable as possible. Designs which properly address 12 key design issues can use the Built for Life kitemark. The awards coincide with the launch of a new website: www.builtforlifehomes.org

Reacting to the awards win, Mark Clare – Group Chief Executive Barratt Developments – said: “We have made a strong public commitment to achieve the Building for Life kitemark on all our future developments. We’ve trained 500 staff on the process of achieving the standard – so it’s embedded within the company. We are the only national housebuilder to make this commitment. As a result, 7 of the 16 sites receiving commendations today, are those from the Barratt Group.”

Nick Boles MP added: “Building for Life principles show the importance of good design in creating vibrant places and beautiful buildings and the benefits it can bring in making development acceptable to people living next door. They are an incredibly useful guide for all involved in development and bring big benefits for both builders and buyers.”

  • Montague Park, Wokingham
  • De Lacy Court, Castle Donnington
  • The Chocolate Works, York
  • Derwenthorpe, York
  • Cottam Hall (Site K), Preston
  • Hendon Waterside, London
