Date added: 2 November 2012

A great evening was attended at the Kent Design and Development Awards at the newly re-development Marlow Theatre in Canterbury. The evening celebrated high quality development that’s delivered throughout Kent and is organised by the Kent Design Initiative - an informal public/private partnership that brings together developers, home-builders, architects, planners, other design professionals, environmental bodies, amenity groups and local authorities, to encourage and work towards delivering high quality design and sustainable communities.

Our Ashford office had six projects up for awards: Hawkinge Football Pavilion (Building Control) – Public Buildings award, Folkestone Foundations (M & E) – Civil & Infrastructure award, Rocksalt Restaurant (Building Control and M & E) and the Marquis Hotel (Building Control) - Commercial Industrial & Retail award, Hythe Imperial (Building Control and M & E) – Residential award and St. Mary the Virgin Church, Ashford (M & E) – Environmental award.

Hawkinge Football pavilion and St. Mary the Virgin Church were highly recommended in their respective categories.

Rocksalt restaurant, designed by Guy Hollaway Architects, won the Commercial & Industrial award and won the overall competition for the Kent Design and Development Awards Project of the Year. This was up against some tough opposition from the Turner Gallery in Margate and the Marlowe Theatre, so this was a great achievement.

The winner of the residential category went to Hill House in Ulcombe - a timber framed, two storey dwelling designed by Hampson Williams, which MLM did the Building Control for.

This marks an excellent result for MLM, having worked on some of the best schemes across the county over the last year.
