Osborne Receives a High Commendation at the British Construction Industry Awards 2019
Osborne has received a High Commendation in the category of ‘Social Infrastructure Project of the Year’ at the 2019 British Construction Industry Awards (BCIA) which was held at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, earlier this week.
Osborne were shortlisted from a record-breaking number of entrants, for their Beatrice Shilling Building. The STEM funded flagship building, delivered via the LCP Framework, houses the new Department of Electronic Engineering, providing high quality lecture and seminar spaces as well as specialist engineering teaching facilities.
The three storey superstructure, in view of the Grade I listed Founder’s Building, has been designed using a hybrid of structural steel and precast concrete.
The judges said; “It’s a fabulous design with new modes of learning built in and an inspiring building that just makes you want to work there, with creative spaces that have been extremely well thought through for a variety of users.”
The British Construction Industry Awards are organised by New Civil Engineer, part of Emap and Institution of Civil Engineers. The awards seek to recognise and reward excellence in project delivery and, crucially, delivering outcomes for society and call on the whole project team – client, architect, designer and contractor.
