The winning scheme this year will house the Olympic sailors this summer. ZeroC, HTA and Acheson’s Officers Field project was praised by judges for its sustainable credentials

Housing Project of the year

Sponsored by BLP

Officers Field, Weymouth - ZeroC with HTA and Acheson

ZeroC is a respected pioneer in sustainable development and has built up an impressive portfolio. Its homes are economically and environmentally effective and exhibit generous space standards. Home for the Olympic sailors during this summer’s Games, the Officers Field scheme epitomises the approach of ZeroC. The judges said the project, which comprises 77 homes, was completed to an “incredibly high standard” and were impressed by the fact that the Code 4 homes achieved high-energy performance despite their generous size. ZeroC delivered the project despite various challenges, not least the tight deadline to hand over housing for the Olympics.
