ProCon Leicestershire Awards 2020-2021

Project Detail

Swing Bridge Wharf, Moira

Medium Residential Scheme of the Year Award 2020-2021 Finalist

An old two-storey factory building was demolished to make way for nine new homes next to a restored section of the Ashby Canal.

The site was given a new lease of life by remediating the previously contaminated site. It reveals a previously hidden section of the canal.

Local buildings such as Moira Furnace were used as inspiration for the chosen construction materials for the new buildings on a landscaped street.

Project Overview

Swing Bridge Wharf provides Moira with much needed new housing in several types of home to cater for a variety of families.

The site has been completely regenerated from a public eyesore into an asset for the whole community.

The new properties are extra insulated and were given high-quality interiors and future proofed for adaptation in years to come.

A sustainable drainage system means no surface water enters the public system and instead is directed into the canal, saving the canal’s owners from having to import water to keep it topped up.
