Winner in 2006

Gazeley and Chetwoods

Shed development has never been the sexiest sector of the construction industry, but innovative shed specialist Gazeley is pushing hard to put warehouses in the vanguard of green buildings – literally. It recently released details of a concept distribution centre that would be a net energy producer, complete with grass on the roof that would provide a natural habitat for flora and fauna. Gazeley has scooped this award for its “Voltaic” shed in Dagenham. Designed by architect Chetwoods, this extraordinary structure uses its roof as water collector, light and electricity generator. Gazeley estimates that more than 120 tonnes of CO2 are saved per year compared with a standard shed of the same size – making it a shining example for others to follow.
