Middlefields House wins Pinders Healthcare Design Award

Middlefields House was awarded the Pinders Healthcare Design Award 2022 for Best Architectural Design. Andy Walsh, our Director of Property Services, shares some words to mark this achievement

I am pleased to say that on 16th March Middlefields House, Chippenham won the Pinders Healthcare Design Award 2022 for Best Architectural Design.

We are delighted that the effort put into the design of Middlefields House has been recognised by healthcare property specialists through this very prestigious award.

The Pinders Awards attracts entries from all the major care home operators, so we faced very tough competition. To be announced as a winner, this year in particular, is a tremendous achievement, because last year the awards were cancelled due to the pandemic and the entrants were rolled over so the judges had a bumper number of projects to consider. The awards event itself was attended by over 600 attendees at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.

Pilgrims’ Friend Society strives to provide the very best for all who live and work in our homes and schemes. The acknowledgement of the quality of the design of Middlefields House by this award shows that what are doing is not going unnoticed. It is pleasing that our first purpose-built care home in our Renewal Programme has been recognised in this way and follows on from the success of our last new-build housing scheme at Pilgrim Gardens, Leicester which was awarded Building Magazine’s Building Award for Best Housing Project of the Year and the Housing Design Awards 'Housing our Aging Population Panel for Innovation' (HAPPI) award for a completed project.

As it says in Psalm 127 ‘Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labour in vain’. We give thanks to God for his goodness to us and as it states on the plaque installed at Middlefields House ‘This home is dedicated to the glory of God’. Praise the Lord!
