The Yealm development wins award

by Sophia Darke

The Yealm has won the Boutique Development of the Year at the Insider Media South West Residential Property Awards 2022 held at Sandy Park in Exeter.

The Yealm is a former hotel that overlooks the twin villages of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo. The judges were impressed with the great attention to detail throughout in creating luxury riverside and woodland accommodation out of a neglected site.

PCA Consulting Engineers worked with Devon Contractors, Red Earth Developments and Grainge Architects among others to help create six spacious lateral apartments, eight other contemporary apartments, and one stunning house.

We worked on the new balconies, which are a stand-out feature of the all the properties, together with intricate detailing to ensure supporting floors and roof structure were unobtrusive.

PCA director Andrew Horton said: “Congratulations to everyone involved in this stunning project, which is now a standout development in the South Hams. It is great to see it gain some recognition and hope to see it win many more awards.”
