Design and development projects go head-to-head

After 80 projects entered the Kent Design & Development Awards 2018, the judges have put forward 32 to battle it out to see which one is crowned Project of the Year.

The awards, which are held every two years, are jointly organised and sponsored by Kent County Council, DHA and Maxim, the PR and marketing agency.

The awards give organisations involved in the county’s built environment the opportunity to demonstrate their expertise in developing and regenerating the county.

Project of the Year, which is sponsored by DHA, is selected from among the winners of the six categories: Commercial, Industrial and Retail; Conservation; Environmental Performance; Infrastructure and Renewables; Public Buildings – Education and Community; and Residential – Minor and Major.

Alex Hicken, Managing Director at DHA said: “A quick look at the list of entries and it is clear there has been a lot of high quality development over the last two years.

“With the independent judges now set to visit all those entries who have been shortlisted we are confident that the 2018 awards will recognise the great work going on to ensure Kent retains its reputation for quality of design and development.”

The individual categories are sponsored by Cripps; CTP Consulting Engineers; Kent Construction Focus Group; the Kent Environment Strategy; the Rochester Bridge Trust and Sibley Pares, with further support provided by Quinn Estates, Gallagher and Penenden Heath Developments.

The winners will be announced in November.
