On Friday Alan Camp Architects had 3 projects in the Finals of the 2013 LABC Regional Building Excellence Awards. To complete the success of the night we were awarded Winners of the Best Partnership with a Local Authority for our partnership with Lewisham Building Control.
LABC Chief Executive Paul Everall said “When architects work across sites – often miles apart – they don’t want to deal with several building control teams. That’s why our partner authority scheme is so important. It means multi-site developers can partner with just one building control team for all their projects – just like Alan Camp Architects do with Lewisham Council’s building control team.”
Solar panels have been installed on the new build element of the scheme. Bowsall are progressing well with the contruction of the development on behalf of Asra Housing Group.
