Nature inspired Repton Gardens is also one out of 20 projects in London, alongside social housing, a children’s treatment centre and a museum.

The RICS Awards showcase the most inspirational initiatives and developments in land, real estate, construction and infrastructure. They recognise outstanding achievement, teamwork and companies. The entries are shortlisted across five categories – Residential Development, Community Benefit, Heritage, Public Sector and Refurbishment-Revitalisation.

Companies still can enter an additional six categories – to be judged nationally – and have until 26 April 2024 to submit entries. Amongst the national categories is the new Ambassador of the Year Award category.

Comprising 396 Build to Rent homes in a mix of studios to four-bedroom apartments, Quintain’s Repton Gardens Build to Rent development features three buildings; Birch House, Cherry House and Aspen House, all with private balconies overlooking the podium garden. 

With sustainability being the focus and commitment of the scheme, Repton Gardens utilises rainwater harvesting, alongside low-flow showers, toilets, taps and furnishings that prioritise recycling and reusability. Removal of waste has been designed to encourage recycling with an ‘Envac’ waste and recycling system on every floor.

Also known for the influences nature and the outdoors has had on the design of Repton Gardens, the scheme’s podium garden features banked earthworks that allow for the inclusion of larger trees that will have a positive impact for insects and birds. The Build to Rent development contains lawned areas, two playparks and hireable BBQ/dining areas, supporting residents to enjoy the outdoor spaces.
