A housing development designed by Sunderland architects has scooped another major award.

Craig Fitzakerly and Clinton Mysleyko, of Sunniside-based Fitz Architects, had already won a host of awards for Sinclair Meadows in South Shields, which is the first carbon negative social housing development in the UK.

Now, they have also come top in the Best Sustainable Project category in the Local Authority Building Control Northern Building Excellence Awards and been named a finalist in the Best Individual Dwelling category.

The firm now goes forward to the competition’s prestigious national final in London.

Managing director Fitzakerly said: “To win these awards is just fantastic. We worked extremely hard on what was a challenging and exciting project and are now seeing the results of our hard work.”

“It’s brilliant that the project has been recognised both nationally and locally by the specialist industry award ceremonies.”
