WW Martin Shortlisted for the RICS South East Awards 2019
Following on from the success of two of our projects in the RICS Awards last year, with the 'Command of the Oceans' Chatham Dockyard, winning 'RICS South East Awards Project of the Year 2018', we are delighted to announce that three of our projects have been short-listed for the RICS (South East) Awards 2019.
‘The Lock’ in Yalding - Regeneration and Residential categories.
Working alongside TG Designer Homes and GPM2 Architects, this exciting new private residential development, provides 16 new homes for private sale and features extensive landscaping areas including a small park and play area for communal use.
The houses are exciting and contemporary in design with a mixed use of materials including brick and wood cladding with large open rooms and cosy lounge spaces. Careful consideration was given to the feeling of community within the development with the creation of a new ‘neighbourhood’ with fantastic landscaping.
The Hundred of Hoo Academy in Rochester - ‘Community Benefit’ category.
The new 1 FE Primary School building, constructed using a steel frame system was delivered within the grounds of the Hundred of Hoo Academy. We worked closely with HMY Architects to deliver this excellent new school in accordance with BIM Level 2, making it the first new school project to delivered by Medway Council utilising BIM.
The completed school has an 'L' shaped footprint, designed to allow for efficient connectivity between the new facilities which includes a new entrance/administration area, main hall, classrooms and shared teaching resource space and a large multi-use games area.
Cherry Orchard Primary Academy in Ebbsfleet - ‘Community Benefit’ category.
Working in collaboration with Lee Evans Partnership, this project involved the construction of a new two form entry Primary School, Community Centre and new Sports Facilities at the large new Ebbsfleet Garden City development site in Kent for students between the ages of 3 – 11.
Now complete, the academy offers brand new facilities, a nursery for pre-school age children and a small centre for children with speech, communication and language needs.
We would like to wish all the shortlisted entries good luck and look forward to the winners being announced at an awards ceremony in May (fingers crossed)
