Marmalade Lane receives two awards from The Cambridge Forum for Construction Industry – Latest
This month our project, Marmalade Lane, received two awards from The Cambridge Forum for Construction Industry.
The project won ‘Best New Building – Large (over £2m)’ and received a commendation in the Sustainability & Engineering category.
‘The judges praised Marmalade Lane as an exemplar of thoughtful design with sustainable communities at the heart of the project. The project is a shining example of delivering high design quality alongside high thermal performance of the fabric using modular construction methods.’
Marmalade Lane is a collective custom build development in Cambridge, and the town’s first cohousing community. It is also an excellent example of the benefits of collaborative use of factory-based timber construction.
We worked closely with MOLE Architects and Trivselhus to deliver the 42 new homes. The scheme’s construction is fully prefabricated with a Swedish closed panel timber frame used for the new homes, and a cross laminated timber frame for the apartment block and common house.
