The Judges said: 
"Now most people wouldn't think precast concrete cladding was particularly green. But at Techrete they do everything they can to make the whole process sustainable – from minimising the use of water and slashing energy bills to organising a range of community involvement activities. They also work doubly hard to recycle as much material as possible, and they always try to use green products with the minimum carbon footprint."

The Judges said:   
"The original 1960s semi was an energy disaster; the new building, with its funky extension is a paragon of energy best practice…and proves that you really can refurbish existing buildings and make them very green. But its not easy – ensuring the house is airtight, boosting insulation, reducing thermal bridging…it all took a lot of creative thinking and careful attention to detail"

"Enrich has developed a way of using recycled clay brickmaterial, mixed with peat free compost and local loam soil to create the perfect medium for growing ‘ green roofs’.
