Congratulations to @AlecFrenchArchs who won the “Social Housing of the Year” Award at this years #offsiteawards for LaunchPad, built #offsite by @IntegraBuild

LaunchPad, the #modular #apartments, were built for young people who struggle to find #affordable #homes in Bristol

It was such a fantastic group of people working together. The investment of time, the lack of funding, the question about how it sits on your asset book as a Housing Association…there were so many reasons not to do it. It was just those people that made it happen, we really enjoyed working together.
