Green Apple Environmental Award for Brunel House project
RG has won a SILVER award for our Brunel House, Bristol project.
This conversion of a former council office suite into 246-room student accommodation not only returns this splendid building to its former glory; it also adds value to the local ecosystem. Soft landscaping around the site was specifically planted with rare and beneficial plants that support insect life, especially rare butterflies and bees. There are also nesting boxes for a variety of bird species, and donations have been made to the Bat Conservation Trust.
We were competing against more than 500 other nominations in the International Green Apple Awards 2019, and were presented with the trophy and certificate at a ceremony in the Houses of Parliament on November 25.
Project Manager, Stephen Davis received the award accompanied by Director, Mick Mullarkey and RG Environmental Manager, Colorado Goldwyn.
As a result of this award, we have been invited to achieve Green Apple World Ambassador status and have our winning paper published in The Green Book (the leading international work of reference on environmental best practice) so that others around the world can follow our lead and learn from our achievement.
