Cara Brickwork are proud to announce that the VITA Student Village project in York has been entered into the Large Housing Development category at the prestigious Brick Awards, taking place on 13th November at the Royal Lancaster, London.

This annual event celebrates the best examples of clay brick in the built environment. Each year the awards attract over 300 entries from leading architects, housebuilders, developers and contractors, across 15 highly contested categories.

The VITA Student Village Project, located within the grounds of the former Grade II listed St. Josephs Convent consists of 15 new, 3 and 4 storey accommodation blocks. Additional work on the 6.5-acre site included substantial Heritage work to 3 existing listed Convent Buildings and external walls that required a sympathetic approach in keeping with the long history of the site.

This is the third time Cara Brickwork have been nominated at this event, having been presented with the ‘Supreme Winner’ award in 2015 for their outstanding work on the Whitworth Art Gallery.

Best of luck to Joey, Marco and the team.
