Following the success of the inaugural Retrofit Awards, we are expanding the programme this year to include all areas of the retrofit and refurbishment markets.
The 3R Awards (Refurb, Rethink, Retrofit) are brought to you by The Architects’ Journal, Construction News and New Civil Engineer. They will reward and celebrate design, engineering and construction excellence that prolongs the active life of buildings and infrastructure, helping the lower energy/lower carbon agenda.
Retrofit is a growing business opportunity across every sector of the built environment, with an estimated £500 billion expected to be spent over the next three decades.
The award categories range from one-off homes to major infrastructure projects, rewarding not just engineers and architects, but innovative products, specialist companies and excellent achievement across the board.
Last year Mott MacDonald picked up the prize for infrastructure for its work on the Silver Jubilee Bridge.
“Retrofit and creative adaptation will be critical if we are to develop sustainable, long-term built environments. They are also essential if we are going to meet the challenge of a low-carbon future. These awards are a recognition and celebration of great projects already completed, and will promote exemplars across the construction industry,” said Paul Finch, editorial director of The Architects’ Journal.
