Worthing Homes has been shortlisted in the ‘Energy Saving Initiative of the Year’ category for its project Relish™ (‘Residents 4 Low Impact Sustainable Homes’) in The Sustainable Housing Awards 2010, organised by Inside Housing magazine and its sister publication Sustainable Housing.
We’ve had a terrific response, with hundreds of entries and Worthing Homes has done brilliantly to get short listed from such a huge field. Britain is leading the way on sustainable housing and innovative building techniques so we’re delighted we’re able to organise a ceremony to reward that organisations that are delivering best practice. Ted Stevens, Inside Housing’s events director, and the organiser of the awards
This awards scheme focuses on the best ‘green’ social housing projects constructed in the UK, and the organisations responsible for them. The trophies will be presented at a suitably ‘eco’ awards ceremony at the Hilton Hotel in London’s Park Lane on Friday 22nd October.
Last year nearly 500 people attended the event, which was hosted by Channel 4’s news anchorman Jon Snow, and in 2008 Alistair MacGowan was the master of ceremonies. This year’s event is expected to be hosted by comedian, actor and keen climate change campaigner Marcus Brigstocke.
The sponsors of the awards include Mitie, United House, Profile 22, H + H Celcon, Sustainable Homes, The Resourcing Group, NHBC, Willmott Dixon Group and Breyer Group.
