Plaque for Commended Alan King Award winner 2016
The Marketing Suite at Taylor Wimpey’s luxurious Halstead Grange development in Goffs Oak, Hertfordshire, has won recognition for the exceptional quality of its design.
The building, located at the leading housebuilder’s exclusive collection of five-bedroom homes off Halstead Hill, was commended in the Alan King Award for Excellence in Architectural Technology Awards last November.
To mark this achievement, representatives from CIAT unveiled a plaque at the Marketing Suite on Wednesday 21 June after giving a short presentation and taking a tour of the development.
Designed by GROW Design Studio, the Goffs Oak Marketing Suite was shortlisted along with six other projects, garnering praise from the panel of judges, all of whom were members of CIAT.
Adam Jackson, Managing Director at GROW Design Studio, says: 'We were delighted to work with our clients, Navigation Property Marketing Suites, on this project, and even more so to be recognised by CIAT for our work.
'The building was designed to be fast and simple to assemble and disassemble and to be re-useable, assets recognised by the award judges. Demonstrating a modern and simple design approach so as not to detract from the homes for sale, this modest building fits the brief for our clients and goes some way to show the wider industry that pre-fabrication and the use of modern methods of construction can be utilised for all building types.'
Adam Endacott, Communications Director at CIAT, said: 'The AT Awards are recognised as the premier accolades that demonstrate outstanding achievement in Architectural Technology. Entries are invited from the UK and internationally. They highlight how Architectural Technology achieves efficient and effective construction and robust sustainable design solutions that perform.'
Jack Costello, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey, says: 'The innovative Marketing Suite at Halstead Grange has provided an ideal space for our sales team to welcome prospective purchasers and we’re delighted that it has received recognition for this prestigious award.'
