Stonewood nominated in two categories at prestigious national awards!
STONEWOOD has been shortlisted in two categories at The RESIS, the property industry’s most prestigious awards.
Stonewood Group has been nominated in the Climate Crisis Initiative – Residential category for its development of 88 sustainable homes at Orchard Field in Siddington. The low-energy homes will be surrounded by hundreds of trees and hedgerows, a restored a 19th century field pattern that will encourage community agriculture, and an ecological drainage solution that will create a haven for wildlife.
The innovative use of a 250-year-old tannery site and its historic workshops and warehouses to create 43 new homes and 100 workspace units has earned a nomination in the Small Development category.
The workspace and residential areas at the development will be linked by a public space that will encourage users of both to mix, bringing a sense of community to those who live and work there. The design of the new buildings reflect the industrial heritage of the site.
Award organiser Property Week said: “We would like to congratulate all those shortlisted, who have been selected by our judging panel for their outstanding performances.
“We received an unprecedented number of entries about exceptional projects in another challenging year. The judges were blown away by the calibre of entries showcasing some truly innovative ideas and examples of best practice.”
Stonewood chief operating officer Ben Lang said: “We are thrilled to be shortlisted alongside such esteemed company, we are also celebrating our 50th year since our original company was founded, so it is a incredible honour for all to mark the occasion”.
“These nominations are a testament to the incredible skill, hard work and dedication shown by staff at every level of the organisation as we strive to create better homes for our customers – who remain at the heart of everything we do.”
The awards will be taking place on May 11 at the Grosvenor House Hotel.
