Jointly organised and sponsored by DHA Planning, Kent County Council, and PR and marketing agency Maxim, the Kent Design & Development Awards are now in their 12th year.
New for 2016 is the Conservation category, supported by the Rochester Bridge Trust. It means there are now six categories to enter, each giving professionals in the built environment the opportunity to demonstrate how they are using their skills to develop and regenerate the county.
The awards are now open for entries in the following categories: Commercial, Industrial and Retail; Conservation; Environmental Performance; Infrastructure and Renewables; Public Buildings – Education and Community; and Residential – Minor and Major.
The winners of the six categories will go forward to compete for the Project of the Year trophy, sponsored by DHA Planning, which will be awarded to the building or scheme with the greatest level of design quality in Kent. Last year this was won by Goat Lees Primary School in Ashford.
DHA Planning, Kent County Council and Maxim are joined in delivering the awards by bdb design; Clague Architects; CTP Consulting Engineers; Kent Construction Focus Group; The Rochester Bridge Trust; Scape Group, Quinn Estates and Penenden Heath Developments.
The deadline for entering the Kent Design & Development Awards 2016 via www.kentdesigndevelopmentawards.co.uk is 19th August, 2016.
