The search is on to find the successor to Rocksalt, the current overall winner of Kent Design & Development Awards.
Mark Sargeant’s restaurant in Folkestone, designed by Guy Hollaway Architects, scooped Project of the Year when the biannual awards last took place, and now nominations are open for new construction projects to come forward.
Jointly organised and sponsored by DHA Planning, Kent County Council, and PR and marketing agency Maxim, Kent Design & Development Awards take place every two years and celebrate the design excellence of the county’s property and construction industry.
Projects are invited to enter one of five categories: Civils and Infrastructure; Commercial, Industrial and Retail; Environmental Performance; Public Buildings – Education and Community; and Residential – Major and Minor. Project of the Year is then selected from among the winners.
In 2012, Hythe-based Guy Hollaway Architects’ design for Rocksalt saw the restaurant win the Commercial, Industrial and Retail category before going on to take the overall prize.
Other winners were Dover Esplanade by Tonkin Liu, Hadlow College’s Rural Regeneration Centre by Eurobuild, Rosemary Gardens by Golding Homes, Hill House by Hampson Williams, Turner Contemporary by David Chipperfield Architects, and Clay Architecture Ltd’s Walderslade Primary School.
The deadline for entering the Kent Design & Development Awards 2014 via www.kentdesigndevelopmentawards.co.uk is 16 June 2014.
The awards are also supported by CTP Consulting Engineers; Kent Construction Focus Group; Liberty Property Trust UK, developers of Kings Hill; and construction and cost management consultants The Woodley Coles LLP.
