Multiple wins at property awards night

15th Jun 2018

Our BPE team in Plymouth led the celebrations as part of the design team for the National College for Nuclear, Southern Hub, Cannington which was awarded Project of the Year (over £5m). Hydrock provided M&E detailed design for this cutting edge nuclear training facility based in Cannington, which includes a virtual reality environment, a reactor simulator and training rooms, sports facilities and student accommodation. The new facilities will develop the UK's nuclear curriculum while creating career opportunities and delivering economic growth in the South.

Our Bristol Structures team scooped the Leisure and Tourism Project of the Year award for their collaboration with Kier on Aerospace Bristol, a major heritage and tourism scheme which is home to Concorde and celebrates Bristol’s long aviation history.

The Tate St Ives won Building of the Year. Our Camborne based transportation team provided a comprehensive redesign of the car park to accommodate the quarter of a million visitors the gallery can now accommodate following a complete refurbishment in 2017.

Our transportation team was also part of the design team which delivered Mount Wise, which won Residential Project of the Year (36 units and over). Formerly a fortified MOD estate which was closed to the public, Mount Wise, in the centre of Plymouth, is now a thriving community of 250 high quality homes with a further 59 apartments surrounding a cricket pitch and has an on-site café, retail space and several office spaces.

Dr Matt Hilton, Managing Director, Hydrock Consultants Ltd said “We are proud and delighted to have been part of so many of the design teams celebrating wins with these awards. The calibre of projects shortlisted was once again exceptional and the awards night itself was a great way to celebrate the stand out projects that the region has seen delivered over the last year.”

Emma Honey, Head of Real Estate at Michelmores, said: "Once again, the standard of entries we received for this year's Property Awards was outstanding. From a cutting edge nuclear training facility in Somerset to a residential development that rehabilitated military veterans through a self-build training programme in construction skills, the range and breadth of projects has been fantastic and has demonstrated the excellence of the property and construction sector in our region. My congratulations go to all of our winners and to all those shortlisted."
