We have been shortlisted by architecture publication Building Design, for the title of 'Sports & Leisure Architect of the Year' 2017.

Now in its 14th edition, the BD Architect of the Year awards honour architectural achievement across a number of specific sectors. This is the third consecutive edition in which we have been shortlisted in the sports and leisure category, despite a record number of entries this year.

The shortlisting recognises our continued contribution to this building typology, including the multi-award winning Hebburn Central community sport and leisure facility, and Angers Patinoire ice skating arena.

Lee McLaughlin commented on the achievement, saying: “We are acutely aware of the importance of sport and leisure facilities to the health and wellbeing of our communities. We continue to drive the evolution of the building typology to ensure maximum impact, not just today, but in the future.”

The winners will be revealed on Wednesday 8th March.
