John Pounds Centre lands Regeneration Award

22 November 2010

The John Pounds Community Centre in Portsea, Portsmouth, has won the ‘Regenerating Communities’ category at the 2010 UK Housing Awards.

A team from Capita Symonds’ Procter Street studio designed the £7m Centre which has regenerated a semi-derelict site in one of the most deprived wards in South East England.

Named after a philanthropic eighteenth century Portsmouth cobbler, the mixed use development comprises 153 flats, primary care facilities, shops, and an exciting community resource centre set around courtyard gardens.

Capita Symonds also provided cost management, geotechnical engineering, landscape & urban design, structural engineering, acoustics, building services, environmental assessment, management and design, highway design, and project management services on the project.
