Triple Award Success at The Housing Excellence Awards

Larkfleet Group has scooped three top industry awards for its quality affordable housing and eco friendly building practices.

At the recent Housing Excellence Awards, where companies are commended for making social housing work well, Larkfleet Group came top in the 'Affordable Housebuilder of the Year' category. The company was a finalist in the same category last year, just missing out on the top spot.

Larkfleet Group is committed to providing much needed affordable housing in Lincolnshire and the East Midlands through its work with registered social landlords, councils and housing associations.

The company has also won a prestigious Green Apple Award. The Green Apple Awards are run by the Green Organisation, an independent environment group dedicated to recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world. The company's entry featured the Sustainability Demonstration House located next to its head offices in Bourne, Lincolnshire.

The Sustainability Demonstration House showcases energy saving technologies and building methods that allow homes to meet and exceed energy efficiency regulations without excessive cost.

Another recent win celebrated by the company was in the East Midlands Carbon Positive Awards that were open to businesses and organisations in the East Midlands whose low carbon projects inspire others to take action.

Larkfleet Group came top in the 'Carbon Positive Cutting Edge (for less than 250 employees)' category, demonstrating its success in developing and building to the highest environmental standards.

The company has considerable expertise in the design and development of highly energy efficient buildings, many of which incorporate microgeneration technologies.

Karl Hick, managing director of Larkfleet Group, commented: "These award wins demonstrate just how Larkfleet Group is committed to providing not only much needed affordable housing but also sustainable housing. Our work with housing providers allows many first time buyers to get their foot on the property ladder. We are proud to meet new energy efficient building regulations and code levels well in advance of requirements, whilst remaining competitive in a challenging market."

Larkfleet Group was also recently shortlisted in the Lincolnshire and Rutland Work Based Learning Awards for its work in supporting local apprentices in the construction industry.
