Norfolk Association of Architects - Craftsmanship Award
New non-residential build - Commendation
eco-classrooms has picked up the Value Award for 2013 at Winners' East of England's Constructing Excellence Awards.
The eco-classrooms design and build team collected one of 18 awards at this year's ceremony for our innovation building at Birtwick Park.
The judges commented that the project was "a modest construction in SIPS Panels, the building has an appropriate pavilion feel... The simplicity of the design coupled with the quality of the construction evelate it well above the level of the ordinary. Modern detailing provides a refreshing counterpoint to the old house, and the systemised timber exterior cladding has a pleasing precision in its purpose and its implementation. Set against faultlessly fitted Trespa panels and well modulated window-wall portions, together with an elegant metal louvered canopy running along the whole of the south elevation, the craftsmanship of the external trades here is of the highest order."
