Lime Street Square - Building for Life

Lime Tree Square in Street, Somerset was a Gold Award winner and the South West winner of the 2009 Building for Life awards. It scored one of the highest scores in the history of the competition and was described as setting a new benchmark for the standard of housing.

‘A great scheme which uses an innovative approach to highways design to put the pedestrian first, redefine the idea of the square and create a series of social spaces.’

Building for Life is run by CABE and the Home Builders Federation with Design for Homes. It is ‘the national standard for well-designed homes and neighbourhoods.’

Projects are rated on 20 criteria covering:
• Environment and community
• Character
• Streets, parking and pedestrianisation
• Design and construction

Other regional winners are also profiled on the Building for Life website.
• Admiralty Quarter, Portsmouth
• Angel Waterside, Islington, London
• Cross Street South, Wolverhampton
• Granville New Homes, Brent, London
• Norfolk Park Green Homes, Sheffield
• Trinity Watch, St Ives
