Derwent London Sponsors Special Award for Brick

Posted on 17th April 2013 by Malcolm Hankey

The Civic Trust Awards is delighted to welcome Derwent London as sponsors of a new Special Award for Brick.

Derwent London is one of London’s most innovative office specialist property regenerators and investors and is well known for its design-led philosophy and creative management approach to development. Their appealing designs attract a range of tenants, including those from creative industries.

The Special Award for Brick will recognise an exemplar project that has demonstrated excellence in overall design and construction utilising brick. As a construction material of choice, it is widely specified within the architectural and built environment industry and features amongst a large number of Civic Trust Awards winners such as 2013 Award winners North London Hospice, Haringey by Allford Hall Monaghan Morris or The MAC, Belfast by Hackett Hall McKnight Architects.

Head of Development at Derwent London, Richard Baldwin, said “Derwent London values good design and is delighted to be sponsoring the Civic Trust Award’s new special award for brick. We are increasingly using brick in some of our key projects, namely at Pentonville Road, Turnmill and Page Street. It is a simple, harmonious and timeless material which, in its many forms, makes buildings distinctive and enhances the sense of place.”

Malcolm Hankey from the Civic Trust Awards said “We are delighted to secure the support of Derwent London as a sponsor for 2014. Their support of this Special Award will help recognise and promote brick as one of the most aesthetically diverse, versatile, durable and sustainable building materials.”

All applicants entering brick buildings or structures to the Civic Trust Awards will automatically be considered for the Special Award for Brick – our next application round opens on 1st July 2013.
