Library Resource Unit is Highly Commended
Stephen George & Partners’ Library Resource Unit project for the Department of Health at Quarry House Leeds has been awarded “Highly Commended” in the Yorkshire and Humber Constructing Excellence Awards 2014.
These awards are intended to reward projects which make a contribution to best industry practice, particularly in the fields of integrated working and stakeholder involvement. In short, they celebrate ‘going that extra mile’.
The Library project involved extensive environmental modelling to ensure adequate daylighting was maintained to the existing adjacent office areas. The design and construction process also involved very close cooperation between members of the design team and the contractor to examine and resolve areas of detail above and beyond that normally expected of such a small project. This has resulted in a very successful space that has delighted those working in it and in which the attention to detail paid by the design team is self-evident.
The awards were presented at a Gala Dinner in Sheffield City Hall on 18th July which was attended by representatives of the design team and the client organisations. Pictured is Chris Halligan – Director with Stephen George & Partners – with the award certificate.
