Redbridge greener homes project picks up a third accolade

The Greener Homes for Redbridge project designed and project managed by Pellings has been crowned Retrofit Project of the Year at the Construction News Awards 2011 ceremony in London. This is the third time the project has been recognised by the industry following its success at the Architect's Journal Retrofit Awards and a highly commended win at the Inside Housing Sustainable Housing Awards.

The innovative project transformed 20 Redbridge street properties with a range of water and energy saving improvements looking at what it would take to achieve reductions in carbon emissions by up to 80%. Detailed testing after the refurbishments confirmed that at least ten of the properties achieved reductions in carbon emissions ranging from 62% to 82%. Judges commended the project for being a blueprint for an innovative and successful way to eco-retrofit older homes to reduce their carbon footprint.

Robin Turbefield, Cabinet Member for Housing for London Borough of Redbridge was delighted with the win, he said, "It is fantastic to see this innovative project recognised nationally."
