We’re delighted to report that we’ve been shortlisted for two coveted Pineapples awards – in recognition of our holistic approach to regeneration and placemaking.

The Pineapples awards celebrate the very best in placemaking, recognising excellence with an exciting programme and a commitment to recognising projects that make a positive social, environmental and economic impact.

The awards we’ve been nominated for are…

Future Place Award – ECF | St Helens Council – In March 2020, St Helens Council and ECF – our national JV with Legal & General and Homes England – agreed a 20-year partnership to regenerate St Helens town centre. The masterplan features a new town centre divided into four character zones and includes the development of a new bus station, public and pedestrian-friendly spaces and the reconfiguration of redundant highways and the demolition of shopping centres

Stockport Exchange is bringing forward public space and greenery, new highways and pedestrian routes, multiple stunning office buildings, a Holiday Inn Express and multi-story car park. With the latest phase introducing a 64,000 sq ft Grade A workspace and a further multi-storey car park.
