Building Awards

As usual the Building Awards kicked off with a great VIP party for the judges (me) and other friends of the magazine. Our Kew Herbarium was pipped by FCB's Chelsea Academy for Public Building Project of the Award; Rab and Denise Bennetts got Architectural Practice of the Year and Building Magazine Project of the Year; Willmott Dixon got Major Contractor of the Year helped by placing sustainability at the heart of their business. Architype won the new Cut the Carbon Award with some impressive carbon savings over 26 years. Technical Editor Tom Lane explained to me that he is building up a library of Post Occupancy Evaluations; I explained that we were nearly there with Hoare Lea's POE on our Warwick Digital Laboratory.
