Every year the Ashden Awards holds a vibrant ceremony attended by around 500 people including leading figures from the business, academic, investor, environmental, political and media spheres. At last nights awards ceremony (June 16th 2011) SuperHomer Paul Ciniglio from Radian received the prestigious 2011 Ashden Award for Radian Housing Association’s carbon cutting work, including the Radian SuperHome.

Adding to that great news, Radian  also won the gold “Best of the Best” Award. The awards were presented by Kevin McCloud, of Grand Designs fame.  SEA won the Award in 2009 and had pleasure in being a referee for Radian’s submission (not the Best of the Best Award, it was not invented then).  Our congratulations go out to Paul and his CEO Lindsay Todd who has supported Paul in his work.
