Greenland’s Ram Quarter was among the winners of the Chartered Association of Building Engineers (CABE) Built Environment Awards 2019, which was held recently at a gala black-tie dinner as part the Association’s Annual Conference and Exhibition. More than 200 guests enjoyed the evening, hosted by media personality, and former MP and European Monopoly champion, Gyles Brandreth.
CABE’s Built Environment Awards recognises excellence and achievement in building engineering, and is judged by a panel of industry experts. Presented by CABE President Ant Burd, the awards covered a range of diverse projects in five categories: New Build, Maintenance or Refurbishment, Sustainability, Preservation and Conservation, and Extension. Nominees had to demonstrate a range of building engineering skills including invention, research, design, or education, and produce a leading edge, innovative and exemplary project completed in the previous year.
The citation said: “The commitment and support to the project was overwhelming. There was a consistent open-minded approach that enabled the team to overcome difficulties and ensured that the tight programme was achieved. The team understood the needs of the Grade II* listed building, and delivered a project that is now a social hub for the community.”
Commenting on the awards, Dr Gavin Dunn, CEO of CABE, said: “We are hugely proud to honour all these achievements, and would like to congratulate the award winners and all those who were highly commended. Our Built Environment Awards are once again an excellent opportunity to celebrate good practice across our industry.”
