SPACE is delighted to confirm that our Newcastle University project, the Henry Daysh Building (Claremont Complex), has been nominated in two categories at this year's prestigious Education Estates Awards - "Project of the Year, Universities" and "Refurbishment of the Year." In addition, Newcastle University has also been nominated for "Client of the Year."
David Coundon, Director at Space Architects, remarked:"This major renovation has transformed three disjointed 1960s buildings, which also had significant problems, into a single coherent and contemporary building. This has created a fantastic facility right in at the heart of Newcastle University's campus that provides an environment which is welcoming, connected, truly accessible, sustainable and stimulating to work in for staff and students alike. We are delighted that Education Estates has recognised this by shortlisting the project in two award categories."
Education Estates, now in its tenth year, is the annual gathering of the education community that focuses on funding, design, construction, management and maintenance of schools, colleges and universities in the UK. We look forward to attending the awards dinner that will take place on October 18th in Manchester.
