We are proud to announce that we have been shortlisted for two categories in the annual Building Awards 2021, which recognise top performing companies and best practice across the built environment.
“Being named a finalist for these two accolades is a recognition for the continued hard work of our team and business colleagues.”
The two awards that we have been named finalists for include Architectural Practice of the Year and Offsite Project of the Year for Addington School.
Over the last year, we’ve continued to invest in our technology and people developing our social value initiatives, upskilling, recruiting, and adapting and refining our ways of working to suit everyone’s individual needs to achieve a work-life balance for all.
Being recognised for our work in Offsite is particularly rewarding as we continue to make great strides in the field of Modern Methods of Construction, with the appointment of Dan Brown as Head of MMC, and several key projects added to our portfolio. Shortlisted for the Offsite Project of the Year, Addington SEN School provides highly serviced educational spaces for post-16 pupils with complex learning difficulties, in a dedicated, unique building with a low carbon footprint. The design pushes the boundaries of off-site construction, providing an attractive finished building which was achieved through 70% offsite manufacture.
Richard O’Neil, Chairman HLM Architects, said: “Being named a finalist for these two accolades is a recognition for the continued hard work of our team and business colleagues. We were delighted to win the Architectural Practice of the Year award in 2020, which was one of our most challenging years as a practice. Since our win, we’ve continued to invest in our technology, people and to be recognised in the Offsite Project of the Year category is testament to our commitment and ambition to be the go-to architect for offsite design.”
The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel on the 2nd November.
