PHM’s clients make fireworks at the RICS awards

While 5th of November is officially fireworks night, celebrations began early for PHM when our client, Berkeley, lit up the evening at the RICS Awards 2018.

The awards ceremony took place on 2nd November at The Brewery in East London and celebrated inspirational initiatives in real estate, construction and infrastructure.

We were delighted to see Berkeley receive first prize in the Best Regeneration category for Woodberry Down. This exciting development in Hackney, North London, is one of the capital’s largest regeneration projects, providing place-shaping, social and economic change on an inspiring scale.

If that wasn’t enough, the site was also awarded the prestigious title of Project of the Year – the grand finale for an already unforgettable night.

Berkeley Group wins Housebuilder of the Year at the Building Awards 2017

It was a successful evening at the Building Awards on Thursday 7 November, as it saw our client Berkeley Group win the prestigious Housebuilder of the Year award, which we prepared earlier this year.

A highly anticipated date in the property calendar, The Building Awards are the industry’s longest running recognition of excellence, and allow companies across all aspects of building to have their achievements held up as an example to the sector. As always, it was a great night hosted by Building magazine.

We’re also looking forward to attending the WhatHouse? Awards later this month, where we’ll be excitedly awaiting the results for the 21 entries we prepared on behalf of our clients this year.

Awards are a brilliant tool for marketing and promotion, offering a respected third-party endorsement as well as the prestige of industry recognition.

Showhouse

An interview with PHM’s founder and MD Nikki Ackerley in this month’s Showhouse

If you happen to pick up a copy of this month’s Showhouse, check out the Supply Chain feature – you’ll spot an interview with our very own MD Nikki Ackerley which takes a look how PHM approaches PR and marketing for its clients, and how Nikki became “one of the best-known names in property PR”.

Nikki explains: “We offer a fully integrated PR approach, which includes digital marketing, social media, events, launches, managing community engagement consultations and exhibitions, copywriting for websites and other marketing collateral.

What sets us apart is that we don’t just churn out press releases – local papers just don’t have space anymore so social media is key in reaching local target markets; for the national press it’s all about relationships and knowing what journalists want and how and what they write about.

We won’t write an award entry without visiting the site, and we’re prepared to say if we don’t think it’s ready or good enough to enter. Equally we won’t write a press release if there isn’t a story.”

If you’d like to discuss how we can use our bespoke approach to meet your PR requirements, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team on 01483 561119.

 

Poplar Harca wins ‘project’ category at prestigious Housing Design Awards

It was the return of the annual Housing Design Awards last night and we’re delighted to share that the entry for Poplar Harca, written and designed by PHM, won an award for its regeneration plans of the former Burdett Estate in Mile End, East London. When complete, the project will provide the area with 109 new mixed-tenure homes, a new primary school and a central community space as well as a planned renovation of the existing local mosque. Permeability is a key feature of the site, creating maximum accessibility through connecting pathways between the bordering streets and the development’s central courtyard and playground. With sustainability in mind, the studios, one, two and three-bedroom apartments and two and three-bedroom duplexes will benefit from 183 on-site cycle storage spaces to encourage green travel in the city.

Find out more about the winning St Paul’s Way Trust School Expansion and Burdett Estate Regeneration and the partners involved in the project.

The Housing Design Awards were established in 1948 in an effort to commend high-quality post-war development. Judged by a panel of industry experts, they are Britain’s longest-running housing awards, which showcase projects to the Government and industry contacts.

Awards are a fantastic tool for marketing and promotion, offering a respectful third-party endorsement as well as the prestige of industry recognition. If you’re unsure about the effectiveness of a tailor-made award entry, take a look at our recent blog to see just how valuable they can be for your business’ marketing strategy.

Trafalgar Place is triumphant at The British Homes Awards 2016

Our client Lendlease’s development, Trafalgar Place, beat stiff competition last Friday to scoop Development of the Year at the British Homes Awards 2016.

The annual awards, backed by the Sunday Times, the AJ, Building Research Establishment and the National Home Improvement Council, champion the best in UK housing design in more than a dozen categories. The glittering awards ceremony was held at the London Marriott on Grosvenor Square and was hosted by Professor Robert Adam, chair of the panel of judges, who announced the winners of this year’s awards.

The award entry, which we wrote, designed and printed on behalf of Lendlease, was submitted just over three months ago and was met with adulation from the judges who praised the regeneration for its genuine and positive improvements to the centre of Elephant & Castle.

Now officially award winning, Trafalgar Place breaks the mould among regeneration schemes in its creation of such a desirable, leafy, residential quarter in such a bustling district of central London. It comprises stunning homes, vibrant green areas, pedestrian-friendly pathways and treelined avenues, which are transforming the neglected, outdated and predominately concrete Heygate Estate into a thriving residential and retail quarter.

Representing the first phase of the huge improvements to the area, Trafalgar Place is part of a £1.5 billion regeneration project on 28 acres of land in the centre of Elephant & Castle. To find out more about Elephant Park, visit www.elephantpark.co.uk.
