A house which captures the energy of the sun for all its heating, hot water and lighting has done the double at the 2014 ProCon Leicestershire Awards for the best new buildings.
The Solar House in Great Glen took both the Small Residential Scheme and the Sustainable Development categories in the awards, the winners of which were announced at the King Power Stadium in Leicester last night [Nov 13].
There was also a double celebration for Rutland – the new HQ for the Rutland Agricultural Society and a housing development at Cottesmore both won.
The city of Leicester also had two winners – the CODE student accommodation on Western Road and the King Richard III Visitor Centre.
More than 600 people were at the King Power Stadium for the climax of the 12th annual ProCon Leicestershire Awards, sponsored by Gateley, Willmott Dixon, Westleigh Partnerships and Salus Approved Inspectors.
The comedian Dominic Holland hosted the event, which saw a raffle raise £9,080 for the local branches of the Parkinson’s UK charity.
The architects, contractors and developers behind the best new buildings in Leicestershire and Rutland had nominated the projects they were most proud of, before expert judges and the ProCon members voted for the winners.
ProCon chair Pam Allardice said: “The winning projects are truly excellent and deserving of their success. The variety and quality of all the finalists is hugely encouraging for everyone who works in property and construction in Leicestershire and Rutland, and those who commission them.
“On behalf of the ProCon members I congratulate the winners and thank all those who put in applications.”
