Shepheard Epstein Hunter and David Morley Architects find success at RICS London Awards

The RICS London Awards ceremony was held in St Paul’s Cathedral this week, and saw architecture firm Shepheard Epstein Hunter crowned overall winner for their ‘Stonebridge Estate Regeneration’ project. The 26 hectare site now provides 1210 housing units for public ownership, with a further 723 being developed privately. It also now boasts an extensive new community, social support and education facilities. There are, in total, more dwellings on the new estate than there were in its high rise predecessor and more open green spaces have been created for residents. It is hoped that the area’s previous social problems will be significantly reduced due to the new development, with a new feeling of community and local pride.

The hotly contested RICS 2010 Award for Sustainability was presented to David Morley Architects, for their design for the ‘Lee Valley Athletics Centre’. The Centre has achieved an A rated DEC certificate through the integrated design approach, placing it in the top 1% of public buildings in terms of energy efficiency. The RICS noted that the David Morley design team displayed evidence of forward planning and site monitoring, energy efficient construction procedures and ‘green’ measures to solve waste and transport needs.
