Crest Nicholson has been named Housebuilder’s ‘Sustainable Housebuilder of the Year’ 2016 at this year’s Housebuilder Awards. The award is recognition of Crest Nicholson’s ambition to be the market leader in the design and delivery of sustainable housing and mixed-use communities.

The prestigious Housebuilder Awards, organised by Housebuilder magazine and supported by both the NHBC and HBF, were presented by actor James Nesbitt at a packed London venue on Thursday, 3 November. The awards recognise excellence across a range of housebuilding disciplines.

At The Housebuilder Awards, as well triumphing in the Sustainable Housebuilder category, Crest Nicholson also won Best Refurbishment Project for Electricity House in Bristol and had another of its regeneration projects ‘highly commended’ as Centenary Quay in Southampton came runner-up in the Best Regeneration Initiative category.

On winning the Sustainable Housebuilder of the year award, Helen Saunders, Group Marketing Director at Crest Nicholson, said: “Sustainability is a top priority for Crest Nicholson as we look to grow as a business. We partner and engage with a wide variety of groups to tackle issues such as access to home ownership, low-carbon homes, resource efficiency, community stewardship, skills and job creation as well as supporting enhanced ecology on our sites.    We are delighted to see this commitment recognised by Housebuilder – and amidst such strong competition from other housebuilders too.”

This marks the second prestigious award for the housebuilder in as many months. In October Crest Nicholson’s Bath Riverside regeneration development was named ‘Best House Design’ at The Sunday Times British Homes Awards, scooping the prize for its ‘creativity and exceptional practice in craftsmanship’.
