Linden Homes has won national recognition for its green credentials after claiming the Developer of the Year title at the New Energy and Cleantech Awards.
The top five housebuilder picked up the prestigious prize at a ceremony in front of an audience of 300 at the Park Plaza Victoria hotel in London on Wednesday April 30th.
The New Energy and Cleantech Awards are in their seventh year and reward those who are central to shaping the green energy and clean technology industries.
Linden Homes received several nominations for the overall award, which goes to the developer making the greatest efforts to place eco-friendly and renewable energy features into its developments.
Credit went to Linden Homes for its continued commitment to building sustainable and environmentally friendly developments in the UK, as well as important design decisions such as constructing on brownfield sites, introducing carbon reduction targets and displaying a commitment to addressing climate change.
The example of one of Linden Homes’ flagship developments, Graylingwell Park in Chichester, was singled out. It is set to be the biggest zero-carbon development in Britain, and the awards said: “The scheme was lauded by the judges for being both ambitious and replicable."
The award is an additional acknowledgement of Linden Homes’ environmental credentials after the company was named Sustainable Housebuilder of the Year among the three trophies it picked up at the Housebuilder Awards 2013.
