Exciting events within the construction industry include the National Construction News Awards, which are now in their 21st year. The event celebrates leading innovators within the construction world, and is held in July of each year in London. The philosophy of the awards can be summed up by the words people, pride and passion. Highlighting the best in the industry is what the awards are all about, although decisions must be extremely difficult for the judges.
The outstanding new Alder Hey Children’s Hospital by Laing O’Rourke Construction received a Mark of Excellence award in 2016, which will come as no surprise to those who have seen the building. The category was Project of the Year [over 50m], and the hospital is a vision of ground breaking contemporary design. The structure represents a European first, and is situated in a park, bringing stunning aesthetics and features such as a flowing design, beautiful curtain walling and energy efficient green technology. It is the first ‘cognitive’ hospital, and utilises the concept of ‘big data’, an advanced system which manages the storing, handling and accessing of vast amounts of records and information. Each angle of the £167m building offers a different and unique perspective with undulating lines, cantilevered bays and wildflower meadow themed green roofs.
An award winning structure adjacent to the hospital is the new Institute in the Park at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital. This £24m project by Hopkins Architects, is another award winning example of excellence within the construction industry. It houses a world leading research and education facility, and is ideally placed to provide a long term solution to analysis and development of treatment and medicines for children and young people.
