Housing 21 has been shortlisted in three categories at this year’s regional Energy Efficiency Awards for delivering best practice in efficiency and savings across the East of England.
On Thursday, 23 June, representatives from Housing 21 will attend the Radisson Blue Stansted Airport Hotel in Stansted after being named finalists in three of the evening’s 11 award categories.
As well as being nominated for Housing Association of the Year, Housing 21 has also been named a finalist in the Vulnerable Customer Support Category and Large Scale Project of the Year.
Ashely Norwood, Property Services Manager for Housing 21, said: “To be named a finalist in not one, not two but three categories is a complete honour and reflects just how much the organisation is focusing on delivering energy efficiencies and savings.
“As a nationwide provider of affordable housing for older people, the East of England represents just one area where we are working hard to make a difference to the lives of our residents whilst maintaining a commitment to sustainability. We look forward to attending the awards where we will hopefully clinch at least one win and move on to the national awards evening.”
In each of the categories, Housing 21 and the other finalists have been shortlisted for their ‘exceptional’ contributions to the East of England.
In the Housing Association of the Year and Vulnerable Customer Support categories, Housing 21 has been recognised for its commitment to energy efficiency on behalf of is residents and vulnerable customers across the region.
However, in the Large Scale Project of the Year category, this relates specifically to the installation of heat pumps at Robert Smith Court in Norwich. Finalists had to demonstrate a high standard of quality workmanship throughout an energy efficiency project costing more than £250,000
If successful at the regional awards on Thursday, Housing 21 will then compete against the winners of the other 10 regions at the national awards ceremony in Birmingham on 14 October.
