Our three projects will compete later this year for accolades in their respective categories at the BCI awards ceremony, one of the the most prestigious in the built environment sector.
Two St Peter's Square is shortlisted for a Commercial Property Project of the Year Award. The 12-storey Grade A commercial development at the heart of Manchester’s revitalised Civic Quarter connects the tenets of civic architecture with the needs of a state-of-the-art office. Delivering 251,000sq ft GIA of high quality speculative office space, it demonstrates commitment to sustainable design, achieving BREEAM Excellent and EPC A ratings.
Dollar Bay is shortslited for a Housing Project of the Year Award. Located at the head of South Dock in London, Dollar Bay signals the Isle of Dogs’ redevelopment and comprises 125 light-filled and spacious homes, residents’ facilities and enhanced public space. Its crystalline form, shimmering façade, passive sustainable design, and efficient delivery makes Dollar Bay a catalyst for high quality architecture in the area.
We used Queen Elisabeth Hall in Antwerp, Belgium, as a case study to support our shortlisted entry for the Initiative Award for Exporting Expertise. Queen Elisabeth Hall comprises a new 2,000-seat auditorium, foyers and a conference centre bounded by historic nineteenth–century architecture. The project is a sensitive intervention that integrates its diverse activities alongside critical interfaces with the original structures. The venue’s architectural quality is drawing new audiences that will secure the site’s cultural, social and economic sustainability.
