We have received two shortlistings for the The Sustainable Housing Awards 2012 organised by Inside Housing and Sustainable Housing magazines. Passfield Drive has been shortlisted in the Low Energy Social Housing Project of the Year category and bere:architects has been shortlisted in the Sustainable Social Housing Consultancy of the Year category.
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 where the menu has been selected with minimum food miles and all the main ingredients have come from across the UK on Friday 19 October at the Hilton Hotel on London’s Park Lane.

Jess McCabe, Editor of the Sustainable Magazine said: ‘Now in their fifth year, the Sustainable Housing awards 2012 have, once again, been inundated with entries from the leading green organisations featuring the most innovative and impressive projects in the UK. It is a fantastic achievement for all entrants who make the shortlist in the face of such fierce competition. We are thrilled to be able to host the awards ceremony that recognises the work of the housing sector’s sustainable pioneers.’
