The project as a whole was a fantastic achievement We are pleased to announce that the Hicks Lodge Cycle Centre project completed by Robert Woodhead for the Forestry Commission achieved second place in this years EMCBE (East Midlands Centre for Constructing the Built Environment) Environmental Sustainability Award category. Craig Pygall of Woodhead said, “With 11 other strong finalists, achieving second place on the night was a great accomplishment. The project as a whole was a fantastic achievement for us. We worked really well as a team; the Forestry Commission, the National Forest Company, Pick Everard Architects and ourselves. It was truly a delightful project and is a great facility for the local community near Moira in Leicestershire.” Incorporating Woodhead’s knowledge of green technologies, Hicks Lodge utilises sustainable timber throughout, solar panels, a biomass boiler, a sustainable urban drainage (SUD) system in an airtight structure, all design elements which make a significant contribution to sustainable development principles. Set in the National Forest the project is designed to BREEAM Excellent standard. Only one site skip was used with less than 3% of waste going to landfill.
