Morgan Sindall celebrates raft of major award wins in London

NEWS

Morgan Sindall’s London office has celebrated winning a raft of prestigious industry awards for its delivery of major regeneration and education projects across the capital.

The awards recognise Morgan Sindall’s commitment to delivering sustainable, high-performance buildings and its consideration for the local neighbourhoods and environments it operates in.

The national construction and infrastructure company’s London team won four Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) National Site Awards in 2017, including two golds and two silvers. CCS is one of the most revered honours within the UK construction industry and aims to improve the image of construction by promoting best practice, with the wider company achieving 40 awards.

The CCS accolades in London were awarded to Morgan Sindall’s work on Lambeth Town Hall, Moreland Primary School & Children’s Centre, Albion Primary School and Grange Primary School.

Morgan Sindall’s achievements also include a Local Authority Building Control (LABC) award for its delivery of Albion Primary School in the London Borough of Southwark. The new school completed in late 2017 and features state-of-the-art teaching space, accommodating 420 pupils.

Albion Primary School is set at the heart of a neighbourhood going through extensive regeneration and Morgan Sindall’s work was part of the largest refurbishment programme in Southwark since the Victorian era, creating a total of 1,155 new school places.

The London office was awarded the Preservation & Rejuvenation Award at the Construction Excellence SECBE Awards. The prestigious award recognised the team’s delivery of the £70 million scheme to transform Lambeth Town Hall and its civic buildings.

The multifaceted Your New Town Hall scheme was delivered for urban regeneration specialist and national developer, Muse Developments, and project partner Lambeth Council. The project involved the comprehensive refurbishment of the Grade II listed Town Hall in Brixton and the construction of a new six-storey energy efficient civic building with a customer centre and council offices.

Furthermore, two educational projects delivered by Morgan Sindall have been recognised for their outstanding design by the Royal Institute of British Architecture (RIBA).

RIBA highlighted the expansion projects for Grange Primary School and Charles Dickens Primary School in Southwark, which were both delivered by Morgan Sindall alongside Maccreanor Lavington Architects.

Richard Dobson, Morgan Sindall’s area director for London, said: “It’s an incredible honour to have received these acknowledgements and to have been awarded some of the construction industry’s highest accolades. These awards recognise the outstanding work delivered at every level by our project teams, who go above and beyond to achieve the best results for our clients.

“As a responsible business, Morgan Sindall is committed to ensuring that we conduct our work with the highest respect and integrity, guaranteeing best practice for the customer and the communities that we work in. That’s why we’re delighted to have received these honours, which reflect our ongoing commitment to delivering high-quality, considerate and sustainable developments that will create a long-lasting and positive impact for all involved.

“On another note, it’s also been a very successful spell for our rowing team, the Morgan Masters, who recently won first place at CRASH – the construction industry’s charity dragon boat challenge. This was the second time we’ve won and it was a great day of fun for everyone involved.”
