HANSON Scoops Top Innovation Honours At BDA Awards

Hanson UK has scooped first prize in ‘the innovative use of brick and clay products’ category at the 2011 Brick Development Association (BDA) awards.

Lawn House, a Code Level 6 ecohouse in Burbage, Leicestershire, is the first private development in the UK to be built using prefabricated brick and block cavity walls.

The prefabricated panelling system increases the speed of on-site installation, improves quality and accuracy and has minimal impact on the surrounding environment.

The judges said it was: “A truly innovative construction for a Code 6 house, from the photovoltaics to the prefabrication, the house is both modern and yet uses traditional modelling. This building provides a great example for sustainable development.”

The house was designed by Penny Shankar, who wanted to develop a zero carbon brick and block house. Irvine Whitlock, Hanson’s brick and block contracting division, constructed and installed the panels, and Hanson’s Yorkshire Red Blend light textured bricks were also chosen to meet the design criteria and blend in with the existing architecture in the area.

The BDA awards recognise excellence in design and construction using bricks and are one of the longest established and most widely respected design awards in the UK.

Paul Lacey, Hanson UK’s national marketing manager, said: “We are delighted to have won first place in this category which recognises our commitment to quality, innovation and environmental excellence.”
