Waterman finalist in 2015 Building Award

We are delighted to be shortlisted in the prestigious 2015 Building Awards category ‘Sustainability Project of the Year’ for our involvement in the Everyman Theatre, Liverpool.

The award winning Everyman Theatre recently scooped the prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize for ‘Best New Building of the Year’ for which Waterman was recognised for the full detailed design of all Building Services Engineering. Special features of the services design included a hybrid, naturally ventilated auditorium, as well as distinctive roof mounted stack chimneys, which contributed to the overall impression of the Theatre. The design delivers one of the first naturally ventilated auditoriums in the country, maintaining “total acoustic isolation”. Waterman also provided the commissioning management role to help achieve the Excellent BREEAM rating that the building received at design stage.

The winners will be announced at the Building Awards ceremony held on Wednesday 22 April 2015 at the Grosvenor House, London.
