Mott wins Retrofit accolade

Mott MacDonald picked up the prize for infrastructure for its work on the Silver Jubilee Bridge at last night’s Retrofit Awards held at the ICC, Birmingham.

Awards were made in categories ranging from infrastructure to domestic building and for specific innovations.

Green Structures won the innovation award for its Passive Heat Recovery ventilation unit.

Sustainability Development Commission chairman Will Day estimates that the cost of retrofit work driven by climate change concerns could total up to £500bn over 20 to 30 years.

But this market is relatively unsung, partly because work shows little visible sign of having been undertaken, and partly because it lacks the glamour of more publicly accessible conservation projects.

To address this lack of exposure, NCE, the Architects’ Journal and the BEST Show created a brand new awards programme celebrating outstanding work in this field.
