SECBE Awards Finalist

We are proud to announce that Hale End Court in Woking is a finalist for the SECBE Awards 2022 ‘Building Project of the Year’

Hale End Court is a leading example that collaborative working, collective vision and careful design can truly realise a project’s potential and shape a Sustainable Social Legacy for all generations.

Woking Borough Council’s vision for the former Car Showroom and Garage site was for a high quality, modern, sustainable, and purpose-built Living Facility emphasising Independence, whilst providing aspects of extra care distinguishing the facility from typical residential care.

This project supports the local social legacy but also a sustainable legacy. The scheme is a highly sustainable project and was designed to enable use of MMC and off-site fabrication to minimise impact of working on the constrained site, reduce overall timescales and ensure quality. The project delivered less than half the kgCO2e/m2 compared with a typical build and 35.9% improvement in energy performance compared with a typical build.

The result is a high-quality building which is purposefully understated, yet reveals itself through careful detailing, external spaces and material selection. The scale has been carefully considered, aesthetically mimicking a human scale and terraced streetscape with an elegant and set back zinc mansard roof beyond.

The new residents of Hale End Court are a mixed dependency population, yet all able to enjoy a lively, sociable, and supportive environment through a high quality, sustainable and inclusive design with generous and carefully considered external amenity spaces.
