Wilmcote House shortlisted for Constructing Excellence Awards 2015
Keegans & sister Company ECD Architects are working in partnership with Portsmouth City Council for the regeneration of Wilmcote House. Whilst providing Project Management, Quantity Surveying and CDM Co-ordination services our sister company ECD are acting as Lead Designers.
Wilmcote House was constructed in 1968 and is an 11 storey large panel ‘Bison’ REEMA variant. A number of major elements of the building are coming to the end of their serviceable life with the result that the building now requires major refurbishment.
Once complete, Wilmcote House will be the first large scale project reaching the EnerPHit standard (retrofit equivalent of Passivhaus).
The Constructing Excellence Awards ‘recognise the best and inspire the rest
The Awards focus attention on some of the most important issues for the sector and recognise the very best companies, collaborations and projects – sharing best practice and inspiring others to adopt new and better ways of working that deliver outstanding results.
The judges of the Sustainability category will be looking for a project or organisation where the principles of sustainability have been fully embedded, particularly those that demonstrate creative and/or innovative thinking and leadership. The winner will be an exemplar where sustainability is central; providing hard evidence that effective management of environment, social and economic aspects has achieved a significant and tangible improvement in performance.
The judges will give preference to entrants that demonstrate that a responsible long term and collaborative approach has been taken to add value and achieve a range of net benefits for themselves and others.
Announcing the shortlist results, the team stated:
“The Shortlisting Team really enjoyed reviewing all the entries – there was a marked increase in the number and the standard of submissions this year and the task of selecting our finalists has proved an interesting challenge.”
Winners will be announced at the Gala Dinner on Thursday 2nd July – put that date in your diary now!
Listed in Building Magazine’s Top Employers Guide for 6 years.
Keegans strive to be a friendly, vibrant company to work for and are proud to have achieved Investors In People status.
