Galvanizing award logoGalvanizing Association - Detail Award
Project: Milford-on-Sea Beach Huts
When most of the old privately-owned concrete huts were destroyed by violent waves and high winds, New Forest District Council (NFDC) decided to make the best of the unexpected opportunity to improve Milford’s seafront for everyone by including improvements to the seafront in the replacement scheme. A major part of the design has been the enhancement of the overall waterfront through new promenades, access bridges and ramps. Judges said the project used all of galvanized metal’s best properties – tough to the salt of the sea, reflective of the big blue skies, and aesthetically pleasing qualities.

S-Lab Awards for Excellence in Laboratory Design, Management and Operation - Sustainable Science Building
Project: Centre for Medicine, University of Leicester
The University of Leicester’s new £42m Centre for Medicine is the UK’s largest Passivhaus building.  The ambition for the Centre for Medicine was to deliver a sustainable building that minimises the energy demand for space heating and cooling, whilst also creating excellent indoor comfort levels. Adopting a Passivhaus (fabric first) design approach allowed the project team to deliver an exceptionally energy efficient building, primarily by minimising energy losses through the building fabric.

Project: 101 Embankment, Manchester
Embankment is the initial phase of a much larger regeneration project to an area that has been neglected for many years and is arranged on a number of levels within a Grade II listed sandstone façade wall. The old masonry arch structure was demolished to make room for a state of the art steel frame which provides three stories of car parking, restrains the listed façade and is the base for two modern steel and glass office buildings above, 101 (complete) and 102 Embankment.

Project: Bermondsey Dive Under, London
Bermondsey Dive Under is a key component of the final stage of the Thameslink project to rebuild London Bridge station. The dive-under involves the design of a new grade separated junction at Bermondsey to minimise conflicting crossings on the eastern approach to London Bridge Station. This will be formed by a series of new structures constructed along the line of existing operational railway viaducts. Wherever possible, existing structures are being reused to reduce disruption and waste.
