Congratulations Rowlinson Construction..

On completion of a works project on behalf of our Client Rowlinson Construction (the Developer/Contractor), Broom Lane in Manchester was nominated by Great Places Housing Group for the RICS Awards 2014, North West.

Not only was this project successful in reaching the final stages, it was a winner! With the help of ARC Electric, Rowlinson Construction designed an inspirational and unique development, specifically for young people with autism spectrum conditions.

The development is a great example of how expert planning, cooperation and innovation can create a place where people at different stages of their developmental jouney, can find peace and happiness in a secure environment. The development has been treated as a living, breathing entity – that makes them feel safe, but can provide the full stimulation they need.

The judges said..


A residential development designed specifically for young people with autistic spectrum conditions. The combined expertise of an affordable housing operator along with a specialist autism supporter has facilitated the development of an innovative scheme which incorporates cutting edge technology and high design standard, helping challenging residents to be more independently in a secure, safe and happy environment. The development includes features which are designed to stimulate users, minimise anxiety as well as preventing self harm, physical assault and property damage. The judges were completely wowed at how thoughtful design complimented by discreet technology can work to reduce anxiety and make an enormous difference to the well being and behaviour of residents.
