Engineering Building project wins major regional award

The recent refurbishment of the Engineering Building roof has been recognised at the East Midlands Property Dinner Awards 2017.

The project, which saw the replacement of the roof and glass facades of the famous building, won in the category of Construction Project of the Year.

Brita Sread, Director of Estates and Campus Services, said, ‘I am delighted that the project has won this award, particularly for everyone who worked so hard to deliver such a stunning end result and preserve the building. This was a challenging and complex project involving a large number of stakeholders and advisors. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the successful delivery of the project and helped it to win this award.’

The Engineering Building is a Grade 2* listed property of great architectural significance. It was the first major post-modern building in Britain and was designed by world-famous architects James Stirling and James Gowan. It has regularly featured in lists of the UK’s most famous and inspiring 20thCentury buildings.

Having been built in the 1960s, the unique and distinctive roof and vertical glazed panels had reached the end of their useful life. The project saw the replacement of 2,500 panels which visually remained faithful to the original design but which perform to much higher standards. The end result is stunning and ensures that the Engineering Building can be used for many years to come.

The team worked closely with stakeholders such as the City Council, Heritage England and the 20th Century Society, as well as contractors, to ensure that the integrity of the building was retained while also enabling its continued use in the future.

The East Midlands Property Dinner Awards were held on 7 September 2017 in conjunction with Insider Media. The Awards recognise the best real estate, construction and design projects in the East Midlands.

The Engineering Building project was also recently shortlisted for the Architects’ Journal AJ Retrofit Awards.
