Wharfedale View shortlisted for Yorkshire Residential Awards

Watson Batty Architects are pleased to announce that Wharfedale View in Yeadon has been shortlisted for the Yorkshire Residential Property Awards 2016 ‘Best large development (over 25 units)’.

Wharfedale View is Leeds City Council’s flagship extra-care scheme that is due for completion this Autumn. With extensive views over the Wharfedale Valley, these 45 self-contained apartments sit in a prominent position just off the high street in Yeadon, Leeds. Working together with main contractor, Henry Boot, the design and build team have created a high quality, innovative space for elderly residents at the heart of the local community. 

Developed in accordance with the Leeds Model of Extra Care Housing the scheme features a high quality specification and flexible multi-use communal areas. The scheme has been designed to be well positioned to adapt to the changing needs and demands of future generations.

WBA and the design team worked together in developing the technical information in Revit to BIM level 2. The use of the software enabled the Contractor to benefit from construction efficiencies, greater design co-ordination and analysis of the construction process. 

The awards will be held on the 13th of October at the Queens Hotel in Leeds.
