Launched in March by the then Housing Minister Brandon Lewis MP, the British Homes Awards challenges architects and designers to produce a standard house type suitable for Garden City type developments, with a focus on innovative designs which are both buildable and replicable. This year all entries must be designed using H+H aircrete blocks.

Architects and designers are challenged to produce a standard house type suitable for Garden City type developments.

The closing date for entries is 10 July, however all entrants need to be registered by 12 June. The winning design will be announced on the 16 October and will be built by Redrow Homes using H H aircrete blocks and build systems.

Jenny Smith-Andrews, marketing manager at H+H, said: ñHouse building is fundamental to the success of the construction industry in the UK. Not only is it vital in terms of the economy it creates and the security it gives people but it is also important to the industry’s evolution.

ñOften it is in new build homes that we see glimpses of the latest innovations in design and technology. It is these innovations that lead to fundamental changes in how we build and consequently how we improve living standards in our homes. It is this desire for innovation that has brought H+H and the British Homes Awards together for the 2015 awards.î

She continued: ñFor many, innovation and change means something brand new, but over the years H+H has proven that a product or system does not need to be new in order to bring about change in house building.

ñWhen H H’s aircrete blocks were first introduced to the UK market in the early 1950’s they were thought to be too advanced and ahead of their time in terms of product performance. It is only now 60 years later that H+H blocks and build systems are able to reach their full potential as a result of improvements to the way houses are built in the UK.î
