Poynton Bradbury Architects Appointed to LiveWest Housing and Regeneration Framework

Poynton Bradbury Architects have been successful in being appointed to LiveWest’s framework for delivering new housing in Cornwall, as well as regeneration services covering Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and the West of England. We’re very excited to be continuing our longstanding relationship with LiveWest, in particular following the completion of their award winning new office in Tolvaddon. This new relationship comes at a critical time for housing in Cornwall and the South West, and we look forward to working with LiveWest to deliver much needed new homes that meet the new and ambitious energy efficiency standards set out in the latest government changes to the building regulations.

We're really pleased to be working with such an ambitious housing association who have plans to invest £2bn in the South West over the next ten years and build 7,000 much needed new homes in the region over the next five.

As members of the Building Better MMC Framework LiveWest are fully embracing new Modern Methods of Construction to drive up the quality, sustainability and performance of new homes. We’re excited to accompany LiveWest and Building Better on this journey and build on our current experience of designing both category 1 and category 2 MMC buildings.
