BCIA Awards Finalist Thoughtful Design Toolkit - Keele University HLM Architects

HLM’s ‘Thoughtful Design Toolkit’ has been shortlisted by a panel of esteemed judges in the ‘Digital Initiative of the Year’ category, in the British Construction Industry Awards (BCIA), 2020.

This category recognises projects that are driving the use of smart technologies in construction. The ‘Thoughtful Design Toolkit’, has been developed as an innovative suite of tools that uses technology and data to help designers work with more confidence that their proposals will deliver the needs of building users, improving the outcomes for clients and the people that use the places and spaces they create.

Philip Watson, Director and Head of Design, said, “The Thoughtful Design Toolkit addresses universal challenges that clients and designers face in the creation of the built environment. It improves stakeholder engagement, making it more democratic and objective than traditional consultation methods. For this tool to be recognised, in particular it’s results at our Keele University project, is testament to the team and those that worked so hard to develop it.”

The British Construction Industry Awards (BCIA) recognise projects and teams for their achievements within the industry and the public at large. The awards recognise and reward excellence in project delivery and, crucially, delivering outcomes for society, celebrating the hard work and dedication of the whole project team – from clients, architects, designers, and contractors.

Winners will be announced on the 28th October.
