Mandale Homes now goes head to head with Skyhall Group for the crown and will find out if it has been successful at a London ceremony at the Savoy Hotel on December 2.

At the recent London ceremony, the company also picked up the prestigious top 5* award for its sustainable housing development in Swanside in Shipley in the ‘Best Residential’ class.

Martin’s Mill in Halifax is a former historic 19th Century six storey mill which has been sympathetically converted into 60 modern apartments for town centre living.

The scheme overlooks Halifax town centre and the Shibden Valley countryside and was developed in close collaboration with the regeneration team at Calderdale Council to bring this important building back into use and further build on the town’s ongoing renaissance.
