Linden wins Silver for ‘Sustainable Developer of the Year’

Tuesday, 22 November 2016 @ 09:00

Linden Homes, part of Galliford Try, bagged Silver ‘Sustainable Developer of the Year’ at the What House? Awards, the biggest and most prestigious event for housebuilders, which were held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Park Lane, London, on Friday.

One of the most highly-regarded categories of the event, ‘Sustainable Developer of the Year’ sought to distinguish developers that are committed to all aspects of sustainability, with ‘an eco-ethos running through the company from top to bottom’.

Judges were looking for low carbon initiatives, use of sustainable materials and energy-saving appliances – and crucially building sustainable communities. Linden Homes claimed the Silver prize for the second year running, impressing judges with its commitment to sustainability across the six fundamental areas of health and safety, environment, community, customers, supply chain and people.

Commenting on our success, Divisional Chairman for Linden Homes East Tom Nicholson said: “Linden Homes has consistently been recognised in this category for the last five years and I am delighted that we have once again shown our fixed determination for our developments to leave a lasting legacy to nourish communities, people and the environment.”

Andrew Hammond, Divisional Chairman for Linden Homes West, added: “Sustainability, energy efficiency and the environment remain high on the agendas of both the Government and our customers making this win in fiercely competitive category all the more pleasing. Well done to our teams, who are at the heart of this achievement.”
