Hunters Wins Green Apple Award

Posted by Sally on April 24, 2013

Hunters' eco-friendly work converting a 41-bed sheltered accommodation at Cambridge Street in Pimlico has won a Green Apple Award for the Built Environment, beating more than 200 other nominated schemes.

The award will be presented by Doreen Lawrence at a ceremony in Swindon on 24 June, 2013. Mrs Lawrence is the successful campaigning mother of murder victim Stephen Lawrence, who was training to be an architect before he was killed.

Speaking about the win, Hunters' Associate Director David Capel said: "It's an honour to win a Green Apple Award and it shows our continuous commitment to designing and managing sustainable housing projects. I'm looking forward to the ceremony and I'm highly encouraged that our work at Cambridge Street has been recognised by the Green Organisation."

The Green Apple Award is part of a national campaign to find Britain’s greenest companies, councils and communities. The awards are organised by the Green Organisation, an independent non-profit environment group dedicated to promoting environmental best practice around the world.

Our work at Cambridge Street was aimed at reducing carbon emissions by 49% and energy consumption by 52% - without compromising on the external beauty of buildings in a conservation area.

Hunters provided employer's agent and cost consultancy services from inception to completion, and architectural services to planning.
