Held on April 18th at Plaisterers’ Hall, London the awards recognise extraordinary achievements in improving the image of the construction industry; measuring contractors on their consideration towards the public, environment and their workforce.

The two successful projects, both of which were awarded Silver awards and delivered by our specialist London Division, were the regeneration of Cassiobury Park in Watford and the construction of the new Victor Churchill Building at the Royal Foundation of St Katherine’s.

Completed in June 2017 on behalf of Watford Borough Council the £5.4m project at Cassiobury Park incorporated varying new build and restoration elements across the parks extensive 190 acre grounds. Construction of a new eco-friendly Hub Building and state-of-the-art paddling pools in the heart of the park formed the largest part of the scheme whilst accompanying works included the restoration of a Grade II listed bandstand, creation of a new entrance and the refurbishment of the park Café.

Works at The Royal Foundation of St Katherine’s spanned 38 weeks and saw the creation of a new two storey, 7 bed-roomed accommodation block which will serve as a retreat centre. The Foundation has been a centre of worship, hospitality and service since its founding by Queen Matilda in 1147. The present object of the charity is the advancement of the Christian religion through the provision and maintenance of a Christian conference and sanctuary centre on their site in Limehouse, London.
