LEEWARD HOUSE AWARDED PRESTIGIOUS SECURED BY DESIGN AWARD

Leeward House at Mount Wise, a development of 59 apartments on the former MoD site in Plymouth, has been awarded the prestigious ‘Secured by Design’ Gold Award.

Undertaken on a design build basis by leading South West regional contractor Pollard, with Plymouth based ADG as the architect, the award recognises the impact of the design in reducing the opportunity for crime and anti-social behaviour.

Established in 1989, Secured by Design (SBD) is the title for a group on national police projects focusing on the design and security of new and refurbished projects. It supports the principles of ‘designing out crime’ through physical security and processes.

Research shows that SBD developments are up to 75% less likely to be burgled and show a reduction of 25% in criminal damage.
