EBS Elk wins at The Ideal Home Show awards

21. March 2014

Leading offsite manufactured building supplier also "highly commended" with a second place in the Construction News Specialist Contractor awards

Burwood Park House in Walton, pictured above, has won at the Blue Ribbon Awards at the Ideal Home Show. The 8,000 sq ft contemporary family home took just two weeks to construct. The award ceremony was held on 19th March at the Ideal Home Show and was hosted by George Clarke from Channel 4.

EBS Elk were also shortlisted for the prestigious Construction News Specialists Awards for their 190 room student housing in Oxford. In the highly competitive category for projects over £2million EBS elk were up against industry heavyweights including Balfour Beatty, Lafarge Tarmac (for their work at Heathrow Airport), Cementation Skanska and O’Keefe Construction, the latter two for their work on the Crossrail project. The award, presented last night in the London Hilton, went to NG Bailey for the Arla Dairy. EBS elk were "highly commended" in second place.

The Oxford student housing has also been shortlisted for next month’s RICS South East awards.


EBS Elk is the UK partner of Austrian prefabrication specialist Elk AG, one of Europe’s largest prefabrication building system manufacturers.
