We are delighted that our Dukes Court project in Woking has been shortlisted for Civic Building of the Year at this years SPACES Awards.
The brief of the project was to deliver a comprehensive scheme to act as a manifesto for Woking Borough Council’s sustainable regeneration of the town centre.
The central focus of the entire scheme is the living wall, which is believed to be the tallest green wall in the UK, outside of London. Extensive consultation with the Local Authority took place to make sure that Woking’s vision for a biodiverse and sustainable town centre was reflected in the landscape and in the concept for the green wall.
The de-vehicularisation of Dukes Street has provided the opportunity to promote an accessible landscape within the public realm, encouraging shared access for both pedestrians and cyclists, with design features accommodating areas for rest, interaction and relaxation for those employed or visiting the Dukes Court offices or for those on route to the town centre or rail station.
Alongside this award nomination both our Mayfield School all-through school project in Portsmouth and our Addington Valley Academy co-educational special school project in Croydon have both been included in this years SPACES Yearbook.
Congratulations to all project teams working on these schemes with us. It is another testament to the hard work and effort put in by all to deliver such great buildings.
