The inspirational winners of the 2021 Construction News Awards were crowned in front of the industry on Wednesday 15 September at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane in London.

Celebrating its 25th year, the Construction News Awards brought together more than 900 of the UK’s leading clients and contractors for a glittering evening of celebration, recognition and networking.

Following a rigorous judging process with a prestigious and independent panel of judges, TopHat won in recognition of their low carbon home development for Medway Council.  TopHat delivered 20 new homes, all with less embodied carbon than that of 1 traditional masonry-built home.  These homes are for Medway residents and tenanted through Medway Home and will deliver reduced running costs and emissions through the use of integrated PV panels.

At TopHat, we continue to challenge ourselves and the industry as a whole, to provide sustainable homes both now and for the future.

It was evident that they have invested heavily in their research and innovation. The judges thought TopHat were pushing boundaries in a genuine effort to positively impact the industry for a low carbon future focussing on a fabric first approach.

Why the judges crowned TopHat their winners

Lem Bingley, editor of Construction News said:

“After the trials of the past year it was great to be able to celebrate the achievements of so many organisations from right across the construction industry. Despite the challenges thrown up by the pandemic, construction firms have continued to deliver outstanding results for their clients, and while doing so they have developed innovative new solutions, brought forward talented people, collaborated to deliver social value, and squared up to the challenges of climate change.”
