CPMG Architects scoops two RICS design awards for East Mids projects

STEMLab Loughborough University, designed by CPMG Architects

CPMG Architects has scooped two prestigious Design Through Innovation Awards at the regional RICS Awards.

The design teams behind the Aerospace Integration Research Centre (AIRC) at Cranfield University and the STEMLab at Loughborough University have been recognised for delivering exceptional building designs which have had a positive impact on communities.

The flagship AIRC scheme scooped the East of England Design Through Innovation Award on 11 May and the STEMLab took the honour for the East Midlands on 6 May.

Both projects will now compete to be overall category winner at the national RICS Awards 2018 Grand Final, to be held in London in November 2018.

Nick Gregory, director for CPMG said he was proud of the teams who had been integral to making these projects a success.

“The STEMLab is another example of our higher education expertise which provides a truly student-focussed learning environment which has transformed the campus entrance for Loughborough University.”

Nick added: “Cranfield University’s Aerospace Integration Research Centre is a flagship scheme that we were very proud to be involved in. The £35m centre is already helping to change the future design of aircraft. Our three-storey interpretation of a modern hanger offers state-of-the-art facilities for researchers, engineers and partner companies. Congratulations to everyone involved in helping to make this scheme such a success.

“Both of these awards are testament to the hard work of our team at CPMG. We have more than 20 years of experience delivering projects in a range of sectors and we look forward to competing in the national awards later in the year.”

The project team for the STEMLab included Henry Brothers, main contractor, Faithful+Gould Midlands Ltd and Curtins.

The project team for AIRC was RG Carter, main contractor, Couch Perry Wilkes, mechanical and electrical consultants, Stewart Morris Partnership, structural engineers, Currie & Brown, project managers and Gardiner & Theobald, quantity surveyors.
