Because of the sheer volume and quality of the entries the judges found it impossible to differentiate between two particular projects and so we have joint winners in this category
WINNER 1: The first winner was chosen, not just on quality but for demonstrating a tenant first approach to create energy efficient, aesthetically pleasing homes whilst strengthening the sense of community amongst residents.
WINNER 2: Our second winner impressed the judges with excellent detailing and extremely high quality of finish which delivered significant and impressive visual and thermal improvements.
Refurbishment EWI – Non-Residential
Judges Choice – Architectural Design
Judges Choice – Environmental Impact
REFURBISHMENT: The judges decided that in the interest of fairness, there should be two winners – one for refurbishment and one for new-build. The refurbishment winner was described as “a shining example of high quality EWI installation and best practice incorporated within a whole house approach which has delivered significant positive impact to the health and wellbeing of the residents
NEW BUILD: The Judges Choice Environmental Impact Award for new-build goes to a standout project described as an incredible showcase for EWI in our industry drive to support sustainable new build construction. When a resident was asked how often they turned on their heating the answer was – “never … the lowest temperature it’s ever been since we’ve lived here is 19 degrees – and that was mid-winter at 7:00am in the morning!”
