Our Brunswick Field refurbishment project has been shortlisted for the SHIFT Awards 2017, in the "Best small retrofit project" category. The SHIFT Awards are the only awards open to the housing sector that focus on sustainability. The winners will be announced on 30 November 2017.
The project at Brunswick Field saw the refurbishment of 23 properties which are off the gas grid. Residents reported that they were unable to keep their homes warm and at the same time had high fuel bills. The project included upgrading insulation, installing new high efficiency storage heaters and fitting solar panels to further reduce fuel bills.
Commenting on this year's Awards finalists, Bevan Jones, Managing Director of Sustainable Homes, said "We are extremely pleased with the calibre and range of the entries this year. The judges have an incredibly tough job to select the winners. It's great to see that sustainability still has a central place in the sector and beyond, and all the finalists should be proud of their achievements. I am looking forward to celebrating with all the finalists and sponsors on the 30 November - it's going to be a very special afternoon."
