The London Borough of Camden's Maiden Lane scheme was selected as one of just 49 projects earlier this year to receive a Civic Trust Award but the final level of recognition – award winner, rather than commendation winner - was only announced on Friday March 1, 2019 at a glittering 60th anniversary awards ceremony at the Imperial War Museum North in Manchester.
Projects selected as Civic Trust Award Winners are chosen for their outstanding contribution to the quality and appearance of the built environment. Award level schemes demonstrate excellence in architecture or design, whilst being sustainable, accessible and provide a positive civic contribution.
McBains provided project management, cost management, mechanical and electrical engineering, clerk of works and building surveying services to the scheme.
Established in 1959, the Civic Trust Awards are the longest standing built environment awards scheme in Europe, with over 7000 projects rewarded during the awards' 60-year history. They are one of the only remaining independent built environment awards schemes, not linked to any organisation, institution or publication and operates on a not-for-profit basis.
