Located off the Coleraine Road in Portstewart, Cappagh Green, developed by BW Social Affordable Housing (part of the Braidwater Group) for Radius Housing, has been shortlisted for the Social Housing Award in the 2022 CEF Excellence Awards. 

For over 20 successful years, the CEF Excellence Awards have been the most prestigious event in the Northern Ireland Construction calendar. 

A mixed tenure site consisting of 75 new social homes and 12 private sale homes, it’s the first of its kind in the North West area. Six of the homes are ‘complex needs’ homes and have been specifically designed to facilitate people with disabilities and special needs, while 12 were sold ensuring this is a mixed tenure residential development promoting choice and inclusiveness.  

As well as the homes, Cappagh Green has 2 large common areas where residents will enjoy the benefits of a bespoke soft landscaped area which includes feature walls, picnic tables and seating areas – all made from recycled plastic. 

Darren Farnan, marketing manager of BW Social Affordable Housing, said: 

“On behalf of BW Social Affordable Housing I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all involved including the team on the ground, the subcontractors and suppliers and all in the office for their approach to maintaining high standards. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Radius Housing for their professional and co-operative approach to all aspects of the construction. The finished development of Cappagh Green looks absolutely amazing and we’ve received top class feedback from purchasers, tenants and all involved.’’

The CEF awards showcase the best of the construction industry in Northern Ireland and the winners of the social housing award will be announced at a prestigious gala awards event in October.
