The Chartered Institute of Housing hosted the Welsh Housing Awards on Friday 18th November at the Celtic Manor Resort. The Awards celebrate good practice in the housing sector in Wales, celebrating creativity, passion and innovation.

This year the Low Carbon Built Environment (LCBE) team at the Welsh School of Architecture were honoured to be shortlisted for 5 awards, winning the 'Excellence in housing innovation' and 'Sustainability in Housing' awards.

Professor Jo Patterson, Lead of the LCBE team 'It was an absolute privilege to be amongst 300+ people from the housing sector in Wales who are so passionate about making a difference to the quality of housing in Wales. It was a great honour to be recognised for our research with our partners in planning, designing, implementing and monitoring whole house energy systems, that not only help in the race to Net Zero but also significantly improve housing conditions and reduce energy bills for residents. This has never been more important with the cost of living rising so much.

The only way we are going to deliver Net Zero homes is through collaboration and communication. The desire to work together was really highlighted throughout the shortlisted projects'.

All shortlisted projects from the Awards will be included in the Chartered Institute of Housing's 'Good Practice Compendium' which highlights the achievements of housing professionals, demonstrating the impact that they have on the lives of so many which is collated to inspire the delivery to provide sustainable and affordable housing  for everyone.
