We’re pleased to share that two of our projects have been shortlisted in this year’s BCI awards; Research and Development project, eDigit2Life; and Wokingham Leisure Centre & Library Complex at Carnival Hub.
‘eDigiT2Life’, a joint project with the University of Glasgow, IES and Sciencescope, is a finalist in the ‘Digital Initiative of the Year’ category. The project, funded by Innovate UK, saw the development and trial of an operational digital twin methodology. Applied to the University’s estate, the research team looked to assess current performance across the whole building lifecycle, and investigate options for improving this. The team’s work established the challenges, opportunities and systems required to implement an estate-wide carbon reduction plan, which could have huge implications on the climate if adopted widely.
Wokingham Leisure Centre & Library Complex at Carnival Hub has been named a finalist in the ‘Cultural & Leisure Project of the Year’ category. This project saw the co-location of a new leisure facility with spa, pools and gym, library, multi-use halls and café in a state-of-the-art facility at the heart of Wokingham. It is a significant part of the town centre regeneration vision, with accessibility and inclusivity being key drivers as well as high levels of sustainability.
Philip Watson, Head of Design, commented:
“Short listings for these awards once again demonstrates how HLM Architects are progressively delivering on our strategic ambitions to promote social value and exploit the power of digital technology to create a more sustainable future.”
These two shortlistings reflect our commitment to both digital innovation and improving the community experience.
The winners of will be announced on the evening of the 11th October.
