bungalows for damha

Twelve 2 bedroomed bungalows in Easington Colliery designed for elderly people in partnership with Durham Aged Mineworkers’ Homes Association. The development was part of DAMHA’s rolling programme of replacing obsolete housing stock with contemporary, energy efficient homes. The scheme design obtained Code for Sustainable Homes, Level 3, and succeeded in achieving all 16 criteria of the Lifetime Homes standard, even on a steeply sloping site! The development received a commendation in the LABC Building Excellence Awards 2010.
