Welsh Streets, Place First, Winner of Building Awards 2018, Refurbishment Category

We are delighted to announce the refurbishment project at Welsh Streets, Liverpool, undertaken by Place First has been recognised as Winner at the annual Building Awards 2018.

Launched in August 2017, the project involved the transformation of five streets of Victorian terraced housing to create a range of two, three and four bedroom family homes backed by shared resident gardens and private terraces.

The terraces were taken back to the brick before wholesale refurbishment. Structural alterations have created contemporary living spaces benefitting from high ceilings and large rooms.

All have been finished to a high standard with high quality kitchens and bathrooms, floor finishes throughout and enhancements to fabric including insulation and double glazed windows.

Placefirst is a leading provider of private rental residencies in the North of England. They design, build and manage an expanding portfolio of aspirational homes with low running costs aimed at the growing number of families who rely on rented accommodation for their housing needs.

Placefirst believe that renting should offer a genuine, long-term alternative to home ownership, and that those reliant on the rental sector deserve a better deal. Their holistic approach and a growing pipeline of development opportunities, Placefirst has become one of the UK’s leading providers of quality rental homes.

Total Project Integration acted as Equity Monitor on this project.
