Ballymena HCC wins two more prestigious awards at the BBH and GIA Awards 2016
We are pleased to announce that our project Ballymena Healthcare Centre has won two more prestigious awards following the tremendous achievement of ‘Best Healthcare Building’ and ‘Best Building in Northern Ireland’ award wins earlier in October.
The new healthcare centre, situated within the Braid Valley Hospital site in Ballymena includes a wide range of primary care facilities from GP surgeries to dentists, and other allied health professionals.
On 2nd November, Ballymena HCC scooped an award for the ‘Best Primary Care Development in the UK’ at the Building Better Healthcare Awards 2016 in London. The BBH Awards celebrate innovation and improvement in the built environment, medical devices and people working in the healthcare industry.
Within 48 hours after this exciting award win, the project was once again crowned at the Glasgow Institute of Architects Awards 2016 as ‘Best Healthcare Project’ by Keppie Design and Hoskins Architects. This award gives recognition to good architecture and buildings, whether new or adapted, which express good design in terms of function and effectiveness as well as aesthetics.
John Miller, Director at Keppie Design, commented: “This is a fantastic result and reflects the hard work and dedication of all those involved over the years on the project from the project team, client, designers and contractors that worked on this challenging development.”
Our team were appointed by Northern Health Estates and are extremely pleased to have provided the civil and structural engineering design within a full BIM environment, working collaboratively with the Architects and Building Services Engineers.
Congratulations to all those involved in this great achievement!
