It was a double celebration for architecture and construction in Rutland at the 2015 ProCon Leicestershire Awards.
Leicestershire and Rutland Wildlife Trust’s Volunteer Training and Working Centre and the low energy home, Whitwell House both won awards at the ceremony, which was held at Leicester City’s King Power Stadium on November 12.
The architects, contractors and developers behind the best new buildings in Leicestershire and Rutland had nominated their projects before expert judges and the ProCon members voted for the winners.
The Volunteer Training and Working Centre in Egleton, won the award in the category for ‘Small Non-residential Scheme’.
Malcolm Foulkes-Arnold, director at Corporate Architecture, said: “We are delighted to have been successful once again in such a prestigious awards ceremony. It is especially pleasing to receive an award where our industry peers have voted for our work.”
Followed by Whitwell House who won the award in the category for ‘Sustainable Development’.
Tony Godwin, of FCD Architecture, said: “To receive this Award is a high accolade for Whitwell House. Already a complex project without the requirement to meet the Passivhaus standard, it is also a tribute to those involved who went the extra mile to design and construct this house. I hope it inspires others to set Passivhaus as their energy standard.”
