Three Higgins Construction projects have been awarded RIBA London Awards for architectural excellence. Kings Crescent Estate in Hackney, Bourne Estate in Clerkenwell EC1 and Sutherland Road in Walthamstow were all recognised for their regional importance as a piece of architecture.
Steve Leakey, Managing Director for Higgins Construction comments, “We are extremely delighted that three of our projects have received these awards. For 50 years the RIBA awards have championed and celebrated the best in architecture in the UK and around the world and it is extremely satisfying to be part of such an important legacy. I would like to thank all those involved for delivering an extremely high standard of work across these projects.”
The judges said that Kings Crescent Estate is “a well-considered residential scheme that has repaired the previously desolate areas and helped to form a sense of community and ownership. A tenure-blind scheme reconnects the estate to the outside world and engaged the residents throughout the transformation of their estate.”
The judges commended Sutherland Road and said, “this is housing that is smart, intriguing and full of promise.”
The judges commented that Bourne Estate, “is an ambitious estate regeneration project including many of the right moves necessary to succeed with such a physically and socially challenging endeavour.”
The Royal Institute of Architecture aims to support British architects and introduce new people to the world of architecture.
