Sustainable Silverware For Linden Homes At What House? Awards

Fresh from being named Large Housebuilder of the Year, Linden Homes has won a clutch of further accolades at the What House? Awards.

The top five housebuilder was hailed in particular for its environmental focus by picking up gold for Best Sustainable Development thanks to the homes it is constructing at Graylingwell Park.

Graylingwell Park is a 750-home joint project in Chichester, West Sussex, between Affinity Sutton and the Homes and Communities Agency. When finished it will be the largest zero-carbon development in the UK.

It features 300 affordable homes and features its own energy centre to provide hot water, 1,812 square metres of solar panels, an off-site wind turbine and comprehensive home insulation to balance its carbon footprint to a net zero.

Linden Homes also won silver for Sustainable Developer of the Year, and Graylingwell Park picked up a joint silver award for Linden Homes in the Best Brownfield Development category.

The What House? Awards ceremony was held on Friday November 15th at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London in front of a sell-out audience of 1,500 of the housebuilding industry's most influential figures.

The accolades come after Linden Homes won the Large Housebuilder of the Year Award at the Housebuilder Awards, where its environmental credentials were highlighted again by also picking up Sustainable Housebuilder of the Year.

Linden Homes group managing director Andrew Richards said: “We’re very proud our efforts have been rewarded by the industry. Our primary focus is obviously our customers and it’s very rewarding to get praise from the experts too.

“What makes this latest series of awards extra special is that they recognise the market-leading progress we have made in sustainable development – whether that’s reducing carbon, training apprentices or building communities that flourish.”
