Prince Charles House is a winner at ‘The Sunday Times British Homes Awards 2012’ for the age-restricted housing category

Randall Simmonds provided Quantity Surveying services for Ocean Housing for the redevelopment of Prince Charles House, which has set new standards of accommodation for older residents using the latest green technology and innovative design.

The thirty eco friendly apartments in the heart of St Austell together with communal facilities for the wider neighbourhood, replaced a 50 year old building that had reached the end of its life and could no longer offer our supported residents suitable accommodation.

This project represents an investment of £5.9million and gives Ocean Housing the opportunity to use and assess renewable technologies with a view to installing them in both new and existing properties in the future. This will lower fuel bills for many more residents and significantly reduce their carbon footprint.
