ModCell are delighted to announce that the LILAC Co-housing project has been shortlisted for the Placemaking Awards 2013 - Sustainability category.
The Placemaking Awards recognise and publicise projects, plans, people and organisations that are making places better. Open to individuals and organizations in planning, regeneration, economic development, urban design, sustainable development and community development.
The aim of the Placemaking Awards is to be as inclusive as possible for the Built Environment, to showcase not just projects that have come to fruition but also ideas, plans and the people and consultancies behind the process of planning and to highlight all aspects of the Built Environment including the best practice that each and every planner has at the core of their work.
All winners will be announced on the evening of the Awards presentation on Tuesday 28th January, 2014 at the British Museum, London
Award for sustainability:
This award will go to the project, plan or initiative that can best demonstrate its environmental credentials, in terms of having met a place’s present needs, or being likely to meet a place’s needs, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs, be it through attention to energy efficiency, provision for local flora and fauna, helping local people to become more environmentally aware and responsible or some other activity.
