The Malings shortlisted for two categories at the 2016 RICS North East Awards Share this article

Cundall is delighted to have a project shortlisted for two categories at the 2016 RICS North East Awards.

The Malings, a development of 59 homes and two small retail units on brownfield land in Newcastle’s Byker ward, was selected in both the Residential and Regeneration categories. Cundall was the planning consultant for the project and worked with, among others, Ash Sakula Architects, Carillion-Igloo and Gentoo Tolent. 

Along with its project partners, Cundall's aim was to deliver a distinctive residential neighbourhood, but also respect the community that has begun around The Cluny and Ouseburn Farm. The first phase also focused on alignment with the Council’s successful Toffee Factory, bringing new enterprise and occupying a space at the forefront of residential quality.

Writing for The Guardian, Rowan Moore described the development as “a masterclass in quiet invention, style and sustainable living,” and placed it in his Top 5 in Britain category when assessing the best architecture of 2015.

Ian Cansfield, Cundall’s Director of Planning, said “we are delighted that we have been shortlisted as part of Carillion-igloo’s team that has worked on the Malings. This has been a really exciting project for us, taking a site with a number of challenges, securing planning permission and then guiding the project onto site. It is fantastic now seeing the scheme being completed, residents moving in, forming a community and kick-starting the regeneration of the lower Ouseburn Valley.”

The final push towards Everest Base Camp

Having previously had a strong interest in the great outdoors and hiking, it seemed like a great challenge and one that would give me a really good excuse to get back out into the hills - something that life, my family and career had gradually prevented me from doing.
