We are pleased to announce that LILAC Co-Housing has won the 'Legacy - Sustainability Award' at the recently held Yorkshire And Humberside Constructing Excellence awards night.

On Friday 11th October 2013 over 240 construction guests attended the CEYH 2013 Awards held at The Marriot Hotel in Leeds, presented by Harry Gration.

The LILAC project emerged as winner of the Legacy – Sustainability Award a project that the judges felt truly represented ‘sustainable development’. The finished product has provided 20 homes and apartments creating community on the site of an old primary school in Bramley, Leeds.

LILAC is the UK’s first affordable, ecological co-housing project. The development of twenty houses and apartments welcomed its first residents back in March 2013, and recently celebrated its official opening event.

LILAC, which stands for Low Impact Living Affordable Community, is a cohousing group who have commissioned the housing with the assistance of the Homes and Communities Agency, the Technology Strategy Board and White Design. The design is contemporary and sets a new standard for both environmental performance and house design in suburban environments.
