Commendation for Brent Civic Centre at Structural Steel Design Awards 2013 July 10, 2013

Last night Hopkins' new BREEAM "Outstanding" Civic Centre at Brent was awarded a Commendation at the Structural Steel Design Awards.

 

The judges commented on the success of the new multipurpose building, stating that ''The steelwork throughout the atrium, supporting ETFE roof, glazed wall, exposed glass lifts and connecting bridges, is very light, elegant and immaculately detailed. Steelwork is key to this impressive civic space.''

 

Now the UK's greenest council building, it was also described as "a combination of architectural finesse and robust structural systems."

 

The new landmark building achieved Practical Completion in May and is now occupied, housing Brent's civic, public and administrative functions all under one unified roof.
