We've won a design award!

Published 25 February 2016

Last week Halberg House achieved first place in the residential category of the Pontefract Civic Society Annual Design Awards.

Halberg House is our tenth and largest Independent Living Scheme to be modernised, with work completed in August 2015. The scheme, which contains 63 fully occupied flats, was recognised for its modern design, new façade, courtyard and gardens. Its facilities include an extended communal lounge, scooter store, spa room and hair dressing salon - all contributing to meeting the wellbeing and support needs of residential customers in the Pontefract area.

David Thorpe, Senior Independent Living Officer, said: “Halberg House has become our flagship scheme in Pontefract. To achieve recognition for this building from the Pontefract Civic Society is a fantastic achievement and testament to both the workmanship and the working relations that go on behind the scenes to deliver a project of this scale. We provide a fantastic support service inside the building, but now we have something to be proud of from the outside too.”

Martin Symons, Senior Project Officer, said: “This is the largest scheme our Independent Living Improvement Team have undertaken. Experience, expertise and most important the culture of teamwork within WDH facilitated the completion of the project. It’s an appropriate conclusion to our 10th scheme in WDH’s 10th year.”
