 2.7.18 PassivPod wins Construction Business of the Year 2018News Blog News for Homepage We’re delighted to announce that PassivPod has won Construction Business of the Year at the National Best New Business Awards 2018! 

The National Best New Business Awards supports industrious, hardworking and enterprising small and medium enterprises nationally.

PassivPod directors Clive and Mark attended the awards ceremony in London on 29 June and were delighted to receive the coveted title of Construction Business of the Year.

But the accolades didn’t end there. PassivPod also won the prestigious Overall Winner award, beating competition from all other industries – and 68 other new businesses – represented at the ceremony.

Commercial Director of PassivPod, Clive Bonny, said: “The construction industry needs much more focus on sustainability and environmental protection, and this national award supports our mission.”

The two awards will join PassivPod’s ever-growing trophy cabinet alongside its recent Innovation in Sustainable Accommodation award from the 2017/2018 Corporate LiveWire Technology Awards.

We will shortly be launching a crowdfunding campaign to fund the construction of a PassivPod showroom which will also be used as an educational tool to demonstrate eco design and a sustainable lifestyle. You can invest in our project – details here.

PassivPod’s Technical Director Mark Pellant said: “We’re delighted to have won Construction Business of the Year and are especially proud to win such a highly competitive title as Overall Winner of the best new business nationally.

“Having worked as an architect specialising in sustainable design for the past two decades, it’s very encouraging to see the growing interest in sustainable construction and awareness of the problems associated with traditional construction practices.

“With three national awards under our belt in the last six months, we’re very positive about PassivPod’s continued success and excited for what the rest of 2018 brings.”

Beyond the primary goal of designing high-quality incarnations of the PassivPod design and executing their production, PassivPod feeds into its founders’ wider vision for a sustainable society. We understand that housing, leisure and education (among other sectors) need to drastically change course in order to provide a high quality of life within the planet’s limits.
