Severn Road, Portishead
The Alliance Homes Group has won the ‘Best New Social Housing Development’ category at the LABC Building Excellence awards for their Severn Road development in Portishead.
The LABC awards recognise not just buildings but celebrate their design and construction teams that have tussled with technical issues, difficult sites and found innovative and creative solutions.
The homes at Severn Road are North Somerset’s first zero carbon homes and have been built to level 6 of the Code for Sustainable Homes, which is the highest level possible. They produce more energy than they use through a combination of insulation, triple glazed windows and solar panels.
The zero carbon homes were designed by Raj Architects and built by Halsall Construction.
