CRL on the hunt for self-builders

CRL on the hunt for self-builders

Calling all Manchester/Liverpool self-builders and developers!

Structural defects insurance specialist CRL is looking for the most extraordinary people and their construction achievements to take part in an inspiring new web series.

The first episode of Venturous Builds will go live early Autumn, hosted by Lancashire-born designer and regeneration expert Wayne Hemingway.

It comes after CRL last month sent its logo into space to signal the start of the company’s pioneering new web series.

The space launch, which can be viewed on CRL’s Youtube channel, aims to inspire the fellow venturous, brave and unorthodox to share details of their venturous builds with CRL for a chance to have their project featured on the online show.

Wayne Hemmingway MBE, a writer for architectural and housing publications and a TV design commentator, said: “I’m very excited to be playing a part in this fantastic and adventurous campaign.

“I find people who are willing to turn amazing construction project ideas into reality, inspiring.”

Other than boasting BSc degrees in Geography and Town Planning, Wayne is on the Design Council Trustee Board and having been with CABE for a decade since its inception - as Chair of Building for Life - is now on the Design Council CABE Committee.

He is also professor in The Built Environment Department of Northumbria University, a Doctor of Design at Wolverhampton, Lancaster and Stafford, and a Fellow of Blackburn College and Regents University.

Wayne also judges international design competitions, including the regeneration of Byker in Newcastle and Salford in Greater Manchester and The Royal Institute of British Architects Stirling Prize and European.

He added: “There are so many unique self-build projects out there, which is why I couldn’t say no when CRL approached me about getting involved in the Venturous Build web series.

“What we want to see is your own imaginative approaches to your own projects. It’s an exciting time for the self-build sector and this web series will highlight that when it is screened later this year with me as the host.”

CRL chief executive Steve Mansour said: “CRL is looking for the one-offs, the inspiring, the ingenious construction projects to feature in our Venturous Builds web series.

“If you’re the person who is courageous enough to think outside the box then we would love to hear what makes your project remarkable.

“We are looking for those who have approached their project in a unique or imaginative way – not just those with interesting or unusual buildings.”

He added: “We are delighted to have secured Wayne Hemingway as the host for Venturous Builds. Wayne’s commitment to innovation really embodies the spirit of CRL and our new web series.

“CRL does not shy away from arranging insurance for unusual projects, covering new builds, complete or partially completed builds, timber frame constructions, prefabricated properties, mixed-use projects, conversions and insolvent properties.

“We recognise that every opportunity is different. With CRL there are no tick boxes and no set criteria – just an appetite for adventure.”
