We are delighted to announce that we have been recognised twice in this year’s prestigious British Council for Offices Northern Awards. Our work with US-based software company, Couchbase, scooped the top spot in the Projects up to 1,500m2 category, while the redevelopment of the Trinity building in Manchester-city centre was recognised as Highly Commended in the Refurbished/Recycled Workplace category.
The renowned BCO Awards are widely respected within the commercial property sector and showcase the very best of British office design, awarding those who demonstrate not only ingenuity and clever design as well as the ability to deliver on time and in budget.
Commenting on the wins, our co-founder, David Clemetson said: “Being recognised by the British Council for Offices for these coveted awards is testament to the skill, passion and dedication of everyone involved in both projects, so we are absolutely delighted and really proud that all partners were able to work collaboratively to deliver such a fantastic result. The standard of entries this year was exceptional, so congratulations to all those shortlisted and to the lucky winners – it’s great to have a reason to celebrate in what has been a challenging year for everyone across the sector.”
David Haikney, VP, Technical Support at Couchbase said: “From our very first meeting, we were impressed with the team at ADT Workplace, and this continued throughout the project. The finished result blew us away and more than exceeded expectations, giving staff a renewed sense of pride in where they work and a place we are excited to bring customers to. We are really proud to have won this BCO Award and are looking forward to celebrating with our team.” On why the project won, the BCO judges said that, ‘An unconventional space was transformed into a bespoke, uplifting workplace fit for the future.’
Both projects will now be put forward to the grand finale at the national BCO Awards which will take place on Tuesday 26th January 2021, where the regional winners will be brought together virtually for the fiercely fought national titles.
