Multiple Shortlistings in the SW Built Environment Awards!


Multiple Shortlistings in the SW Built Environment Awards!

We are delighted to see two of our projects shortlisted across a number of categories in the 2018 Constructing Excellence South West Built Environment Awards.

Contractor Midas has been shortlisted in the Digital Construction Project category for the recently completed National College for Nuclear. This new £9.3m ‘BREEAM ’ rated facility in Cannington revolutionises the way in which higher level professional and technical training for the nuclear sector is delivered, utilising innovative technology and virtual reality simulators to replicate a nuclear working environment, whether in nuclear new build/operation/decommissioning, defence or medicine. Our Client for this project, Bridgwater & Taunton College, has also been shortlisted in the Client of the Year category

Willmott Dixon has been shortlisted in three categories (Project of the Year, Sustainability, and Health & Safety) for the University of the West of England Digital Media Building. The new building, located in Bristol, provides a modern, fit-for purpose, digitally-connected environment that will attract and retain students and retain the University’s reputation as a sector leader. This project forms the first phase of the Bower Ashton Masterplan redevelopment, and comprises a specialist film production studio, control rooms, photographic studios, workshops, student hub, animation suites and sound recording and colour grading spaces, as well as a series of edit suites and staff spaces. We are currently working on the next phase of this masterplan, The Physical Making Building, which is due for completion later in the year. The project was delivered to BIM Level 2 and our client, UWE, is also shortlisted in the Innovation category for their development of BIM within the university.

We are privileged to work with clients who value quality and who purposefully pursue excellence and innovation in design to create aspirational buildings. These shortlistings reflect the successful collaboration of the whole client/design/construction team. Congratulations to everyone involved with these projects – we look forward to the awards ceremony in June!
