Phase One of the Home of 2030 design competition seeks to:
- Invite teams to illustrate a multidisciplinary approach to a deliverable housing concept which can be configured at different densities/scales.
- Stimulate a wide range of ideas, designs, products and solutions, from across the industry.
- Seek initial responses from designers, developers, SMEs, contractors, funders and product suppliers, as well as landowners (including local authorities), to propose practical ideas to address the brief in different contexts.
- Integrate innovative approaches and technologies to delivering the objectives – [with reference to the Innovation Challenge Directory and other products and systems].
- Showcase products and innovations that exist in the market which require opportunities to scale up their application.
- Seek new entrants to the market from UK or beyond for diversity of supply.
Phase 1 is non-site-specific and entries are submitted anonymously.
After evaluation, the shortlisted 6 entries will be selected for progression to Phase 2 and identified for publicity purposes.
The aim of Phase 2 is for the shortlisted teams to produce deliverable proposals with supporting detail for a live site development. The shortlisted teams will each receive an honorarium on completion of the Phase 2 requirements and will need to declare the key members of their delivery proposition and the competencies and eligibility of their team.
The Phase 2 brief will require the shortlisted teams to develop their concept from Phase 1 in sufficient detail for evaluation to satisfy the requirement for a deliverable product for an identified site (outside London) in a growth area for a proposed parcel of up to 100 homes. Land will be identified by Homes England in the form of a serviced site with key infrastructure in place within a large scale phased mixed development. Phase 2 proposals should set out a typical street frontage for around 12 homes, to include detailed configurations for at least two different typologies, to fully illustrate the deliverability and versatility of their concept proposal. Proposals should also show how they respond to local distinctiveness and provide opportunity for community cohesion.
Phase 2 submissions will include design and development proposals, outline costs and implementation plans. The final submissions will be evaluated against the briefing criteria and promoted and given publicity after their honorarium is rewarded, before the next phase of activities commence.
Outcomes from public engagement and the Home of 2030 young persons’ competition will be available to all entrants as background to the competition requirements at this phase.
The six Phase 2 submissions will be assessed according to the published criteria, with honoraria awarded to all shortlisted entrants and awards for three winners.
