Cambridge City Council commissioned a masterplan for the comprehensive redevelopment of a 10-hectare site around Station Road to the south-east of the town centre, and Pollard Thomas Edwards has developed a detailed scheme for one phase of this masterplan.

This includes the conversion of Spillers Mill into apartments, and the creation of four new apartment blocks.

Spillers Mill is a late nineteenth century industrial building which is classified as a Building of Local Interest. Our approach was to remove poor quality additions, reinstate the original parapet line, and maintain the existing window detail: original double-height openings at street level were exploited to provide double-height commercial space.

Nineteen spacious apartments for private sale were created on the upper floors, including duplexes and penthouses – one of which extends upwards into the original turret.

Four new six- to seven-storey apartment blocks providing 150 mixed tenure flats, are now complete. They overlook an informal green space which forms the heart of the development.

Congratulations to the teams at Hill, Pollard Thomas Edwards and Cambridge City Council Building Control on the success of this fantastic project. Our building excellence awards are an opportunity for the industry to celebrate good practice. Our winners demonstrate how positive working relationships with local council building control teams achieve high quality, sustainable buildings. Our awards are unique because they recognise how this cooperation improves building standards and professionalism across the industry.”
