Boiler House shortlisted for BCIA award

June 2019
The Boiler House project in Hayes, Middlesex, has been shortlisted for the BCIA Housing Project of the Year award in recognition of its sustainable design, use of cross-laminated timber and importance in local community development.

Well done to the whole team: client/developer HUB, architects Studio Egret and Stride Treglown (delivery), main contractor Henry Construction, and all the other consultants and contractors. The Building Construction Industry Awards (BCIA) winners for 2019 will be announced in London on 9 October.

The Boiler House is a new six-storey CLT building, located in the Old Vinyl Factory regeneration scheme and constructed using sustainably sourced timber. It contains 54 studio, on-bed and two-bed apartments, with commercial units at ground level and shared roof-top garden.

“Apart from being a beautiful project and a great team, the Boiler House is a real prototype for how under-ten storey, high quality personalised low carbon housing can be built.”
Elliott Connolly, lead engineer
