A BROMSGROVE man has been shortlisted for a national eco award.
John Bedford, head of project development at housing organisation the Accord Group, has been nominated for a prestigious Sustainable Housing Award.
The 46-year-old, a qualified architectural technician, is one of six people left in the running for a prestigious award in the Green Social Housing Champion of the Year category.
Mr Bedford helped launch the not-for-profit organisation’s timber home factory, LoCaL Homes, and was also nominated for designing low carbon housing across the Midlands.
"It was a real surprise to be nominated for this award but I’m absolutely thrilled,” he said.
“I’ve always had a passion for designing sustainable homes and working for the Accord Group has given me the chance to pursue this as well as realising more efficient ways of building homes using sustainable materials.”
Mr Bedford will find out he has been successful when the award winners are announced at a special ceremony being held this Friday, October 18.
