We have really hit the ground running this year with awards, with our practice and projects currently on the shortlist for four prestigious accolades!
For the second time, we have been shortlisted for a CIBSE Award, this time with Wilkinson Primary School for Project of the Year – Public Use category. With our project partners, E3 Consulting Engineers, we were able to enter a convincing submission for this years line-up, thanks to our rigorous research and monitoring that we have been conducting with the school over the past two years. We look forward to hearing about the other schemes on the shortlist at the awards dinner, which takes place later this month.
Architype has been shortlisted for BD Online AYA Awards under the esteemed ‘Sustainability Architect of the Year Award’, which we hope to scoop this year, having shown how our sustainable approach spans a wide range of sectors and building types with some of our most recently complete projects.
Last years completion of the Enterprise Centre at the University of East Anglia put the project firmly in the spotlight, with its groundbreaking sustainable credentials and innovative approach. The project continues to gather momentum with press and awards, the most recent shortlisting is for the British Council for Offices Award. We look forward to meeting the judging panel this month and introducing them to the building first hand, with the results revealed at the awards dinner in March.
The building has also been named a finalist by the Royal Town and Planning Institute, for the schemes contribution to planning excellence. Phil Williams, President of the Royal Town Planning Institute said, “the finalists highlight outstanding examples of planning that have made a positive impact on the local community and environment. The judges will find it difficult separating the finalists and choosing winners given the high calibre of entries this year.”
We keep our fingers crossed! Let us know if you are attending any of the awards ceremonies, we look forward to meeting you there!
