|Latest Award For Trencherfield Mill in Wigan
The iconic regeneration of Wigan’s Trencherfield Mill is expanding its trophy cabinet yet again after the recent Royal Institution of Charter Surveyors (RICS) North West awards.
Stewart Milne Homes’ renovation of the former cotton mill scooped the Highly Commended spot in this year’s Regeneration category, which is designed to identify and reward the most innovative and inspirational projects within the industry.
Central to the large-scale regeneration of Wigan Pier Quarter, Trencherfield Mill was expertly transformed from a derelict site into a thriving development of prime residential, commercial, retail and leisure spaces.
The Grade II listed building itself has been sympathetically restored and converted into a collection of 52 modern apartments. Each property is creatively designed to utilise the building’s early 1900s industrial features. Impressive high ceilings, large windows, and expanses of red brick are coupled with light, fresh colour schemes, emphasising the ample space and enhancing the appearance of original brickwork. A popular option with buyers from across the city, the urban-chic properties are now almost sold out.
Commenting on the latest award, Simon Bennett, sales and marketing director for Stewart Milne Homes North West England, said:
“We are absolutely delighted to win yet another award for Trencherfield Mill. It is a real testament to the project that we continue to receive such high levels of recognition from industry bodies like the RICS. This latest addition joins a particularly impressive portfolio of awards including four individual titles from Wigan Council throughout 2007 and 2008, in recognition of build quality and design.”
The RICS North West awards received a total of 71 entries this year, with 49 projects making it onto a shortlist for eight individual categories.
