We have scooped a double win at the North West Regional Construction Awards 2017 for our flagship project, Maggie’s Oldham.
Despite tough competition from high-profile projects across the North West of England, Maggie’s Oldham was awarded ‘Project of the Year’ and ‘Sub-Regional Project of the Year for Manchester’.
Maggie’s Oldham is a cancer care centre situated within the grounds of The Royal Oldham Hospital. Maggie’s is a charity that provides free practical, emotional and social support for people with cancer and their family and friends. The project is the world’s first permanent building constructed entirely of hardwood cross-laminated timber (CLT). The building has a striking design where the building sits on six stilts thus allowing the building to hover over a garden. Another unique aspect is that trees grow up through the building, bringing nature into the interior.
The awards evening took place on Friday 23rd June at the Principal Hotel in Manchester and was attended by over 500 North West based construction professionals.
