Two of Hydrock’s most recently completed projects are short-listed in the British Construction Industry Awards (BCIA), the most prestigious awards in the built environment sector: UK Hydrographic Office and Mulberry Park Community Hub.
Described as a masterclass in the integration of architecture and engineering, the 11,000 sq m headquarter building for the UK Hydrographic Office is short-listed in the hotly contested ‘Commercial Property Project of the Year’ category against an equally impressive set of statement buildings in London and beyond.
With its 8m span, eye-catching copper alloy clad cantilever, Mulberry Park Community Hub is short-listed in the ‘Social Infrastructure Project of the Year’ category.
The BCIA awards, supported by the Institution of Civil Engineers and the industry-leading publication, New Civil Engineer, recognise and reward excellence in project delivery and the delivery of outstanding outcomes for society. They also recognise and reward the work of the whole project team – client, architect, design engineer and contractor.
Reflecting on the two short-listings, Graham Munday, Marketing Director for Hydrock, said: “Alongside our project partners, we’re really excited that our contribution to two of our most recently completed projects is recognised with a short-listing for these nationally significant awards.
“Our civil, structural and building services design of the UKHO headquarters, in collaboration with AHR, BAM, Mace and an outstandingly enlightened client, has fundamentally changed the workplace environment for UKHO to reflect the digital transformation of their business.
“Commissioned by Bath-based house-builder, Curo, Mulberry Park Community Hub is a trailblazer for future community buildings. Our structural designs enabled BDP’s architectural vision to be achieved. This dynamic building provides fantastic facilities for the local community as part of Curo’s emerging new residential development.”
Ahead of the BCIA awards night in London on 9th October, the BCIA judges, who represent an array of industry-leading organisations, will conduct a site walk-over of both projects this summer.
