Best Sustainability Design For Houghton Regis Estate?

Central Bedfordshire Building Control Team are waiting with bated breath tonight, because tomorrow, Tuesday, 13 November, they will find out if buildings in Central Bedfordshire will beat the likes of the Velodrome to a building excellence award.

A scheme of 179 mixed tenure dwellings at Sandringham Drive in Houghton Regis is up against the Velodrome for Best Sustainability Design.

Cllr Brian Spurr, Executive Member for Sustainable Communities (Services) at the council, said: “What a David and Goliath story this is! We’re absolutely delighted that the quality of our local builders, architects and developers is being recognised up there with the likes of the Olympic Park buildings. We’ll be rooting for them on the night but even if we don’t win, the prestige of being a finalist alongside buildings of this calibre will console us!”
