green gong for de­vel­oper

The Wharf - - PROPERTY - Jon Massey

Telford Homes has been named the most im­proved home builder for a sec­ond year run­ning in the 2018 Nex­tGen­er­a­tion sus­tain­able hous­ing bench­mark re­port.

The de­vel­oper be­hind such schemes as Man­hat­tan Plaza in Po­plar and The Lib­erty Build­ing and Calders Wharf on the Isle Of Dogs achieved a gold Level award for the first time in the re­port, ris­ing up the rank­ings from sixth in 2017 and 17th in 2016.

Telford puts its progress down to its Build­ing A Liv­ing Legacy strat­egy, which was launched in 2016 and sets out its ap­proach to cre­at­ing sus­tain­able homes.

The de­vel­oper’s chief ex­ec­u­tive Jon Di Ste­fano said: “‘We are de­lighted our com­mit­ment to sus­tain­able house build­ing has been recog­nised with the high­est level Gold award in this year’s Nex­tGen­er­a­tion bench­mark­ing re­port.

“We are very proud of our record on sus­tain­abil­ity, as ev­i­denced by our most im­proved sta­tus on the bench­mark once again, which recog­nises our rise up the rank­ings of thir­teen places in just three years.

“This has been en­abled by our strat­egy to cre­ate places with a pos­i­tive long-term con­tri­bu­tion to Lon­don’s built en­vi­ron­ment.

“Sus­tain­abil­ity is an area of in­creas­ing im­por­tance for our part­ners and a key fac­tor in our abil­ity to se­cure and main­tain mu­tu­ally ben­e­fi­cial part­ner­ships.”

Nex­tGen­er­a­tion analy­ses the per­for­mance of the 25 largest res­i­den­tial de­vel­op­ers in the UK and is over­seen by an ex­ec­u­tive com­mit­tee made up of Homes Eng­land and the UK Green Build­ing Coun­cil. It is ad­min­is­tered by JLL.

The bench­mark re­port en­ables home builders and their stake­hold­ers to un­der­stand the sus­tain­abil­ity of their op­er­a­tions and the places and prop­er­ties they build across a range of cri­te­ria in­clud­ing strat­egy and gov­er­nance, en­vi­ron­ment, so­ci­ety and econ­omy, and dis­clo­sure and trans­parency.

The bench­mark­ing cri­te­ria are based on best prac­tice stan­dards and guid­ance, and are de­signed to be chal­leng­ing and go be­yond statu­tory min­i­mal or stan­dard prac­tice in the in­dus­try.
