British Construction Industry Awards


CHEERFUL AND CHEAP: Architect Simon Allford (right) of Allford Hall Monaghan Morris emphasing his explanation of the CASPAR low cost housing project to British Construction Industry Awards judges' chairman and Stanhope chief executive Sir Stuart Lipton as judging for this year's competition got under way last week. They were standing on the top floor balcony of the Birmingham housing scheme in which 50m 2one bedroom flats were built for just £51,000 each. Judges met representatives of the CASPAR project as they began the first of more than two dozen site visits for the 2001 Awards, checking out shortlisted entries and interviewing their project teams. Last Thursday the judges went to the Millennium Galleries, Sheffield; CASPAR affordable housing in central Birmingham (pictured); and to Proof House Junction rail remodelling scheme, also in Birmingham.
