SNUG Forest Road received the Judges Award
The Forest Road SNUG home is the first of its kind. An offsite, custom-build, net zero-carbon home, built with the community, that challenges the idea of what a ‘house’ is. The SNUG is a two-storey 44m2 1 bedroom, 1 person home, with a small footprint to fit neatly into back gardens or leftover plots, helping provide affordable new homes and improve urban areas.
Whilst The Zetland Passive House project received the peoples prize
The Zetland Passive House project is the UK’s first certified EnerPHit Plus building. Originally built in 1894, this Passivhaus project is intended to provide a blueprint for retrofitting the UK’s 8 million pre-1930’s, hard to treat homes. Using natural, breathable materials and reusing all the recoverable, original fabric, the project is a pioneering example of sustainable low carbon retrofit.
In the Product Category
The Judges Award went to Accoya Wood
Accsys transforms fast-growing, certified sustainable wood through a proprietary acetylation process, which increases the already naturally-occurring acetyl content of wood, to produce Accoya wood. This reduces the ability to absorb water, making it more dimensionally stable and extremely durable. The result is a high performing product with sustainability credentials that exceed those of man-made, resource intensive alternatives.
And the People's prize went to Agile's Innovative Housing Solution
Agile’s innovative, rapid, housing solution is high-quality, space-compliant, low-carbon and affordable. By unlocking land that’s free and “hidden in plain sight”, they eliminate costs, putting keys in front doors for social rent, shared ownership and open market. Built using an MMC panel system and renewable materials including UK timber, each home embeds 27 tonnes of carbon.
The Initiative Category saw the Judges Award going to People Powered Retrofit
The in-person ceremony was hosted by EDGE in London.
