ed specialist civil and structural engineering company, taking the Ground and Air Source Power Award for its revolutionary new foundation system. The system is a quick, no-dig solution for building foundations and the steel frame can be constructed by a team of just two people within the course of a single day. Combined with special energy piles driven into the ground, which take geothermal energy out of the ground, the system can be used as an off-grid solution to heating the home in the winter and keeping it cool in the winter. The foundation system has already been successfully used for the Creative Energy Homes project, which has seen the construction of seven zero-carbon homes on Nottingham's University Park campus showcasing the latest in innovative environmentally sustainable design and renewable energy technologies.

Professor Chris Rudd, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Knowledge Transfer and Business Engagement, said: "We're delighted to receive this accolade for our groundbreaking work in low carbon technologies. This is a space where great science meets with environmental responsibility and great business opportunity. It sends a powerful message to our staff and students that University of Nottingham researchers continue not only to make important technological breakthroughs but that they connect with communities and markets to improve lives and help to preserve the planet."

The awards are yet further recognition for Nottingham's green credentials last month it was awarded second place in the UI GreenMetric World University Ranking, the league table of the world's most environmentally-friendly higher education institutions.
