Air W1 triumphs at British Construction Awards
The superior multi-award winning development; Quadrant 3 (Air 1 offices), has triumphed once more with an award for ‘Best Practice’ at the British Construction Industry Awards (BCIA) held on 10th October 2012. The BCIA recognise excellence in its broadest sense – the overall design, construction and delivery of buildings and civil engineering projects. The awards are highly regarded in the construction sector and the most rigorously judged awards in the industry.
The AirW1 development provides 324,000 ft2 of gross Grade A office space and incorporates the restoration of Art Deco details from the original building, combined with high-specification modern features including a stunning central atrium. Located just off Regent Street, the development is a remarkable commercial success having attracted high calibre global occupiers.
The overall 400,000ft2 mixed-use scheme; Q3, was delivered four months early and under budget, setting a new benchmark for a sustainable central London development. Waterman provided Structural engineering services on the former Regents Palace hotel, which played a key role in the project’s success.
The Judges’ commented, ”This is a stunning project, demonstrating a seamless marriage of new and old, delivered through sound client vision and an able delivery team.”
