The David Attenborough Building, in which the CCI campus is based, has won two major awards at the Cambridge Design & Construction Awards. The Engineering & Sustainability Project of the Year Award recognised both the inventive design and the bespoke environmental assessment method that was devised to match the project’s ambitious sustainability agenda. The Best Conservation Alteration or Extension Award was given to the project for the unique contribution it has made to the townscape of the city of Cambridge.
Carol Lelliott from Nicholas Hare Architects (responsible for the refurbishment and restoration of the Building) and Mike Rands, Executive Director of the Cambridge Conservation Initiative, accepted the awards on behalf on the wider team, which included Aecom and Buro Happold. The Main Contractor for the project, Kier, received the Considerate Contractors award.
The Cambridge Design and Construction Awards are sponsored by Cambridge City Council and Cambridge Forum for the Construction Industry.
