Over 400 members, guests and industry representatives attended The Concrete Society Awards Dinner held at the Intercontinental Hotel, Park Lane, London on 7 November 2013. This prestigious event celebrates excellence in concrete and is the longest running awards event in the UK construction industry, now in its 45th year.
The Right Honourable Michael Portillo, the engaging and charismatic speaker was this year’s guest host presenting the awards to our winners. This year the Overall Winner was Hill Top House for its superlative expression of exposed concrete surfaces and modernistic interpretation of urban architectural form.
Nominated by Adrian James Architects, this contemporary private dwelling is squeezed between existing terraced properties. Judges acclaimed the exceptional use of precast and in-situ concrete creating a simplistic and uncluttered space with a high ration of exposed concrete surface to square footage. The owners are delighted with its both its form and function.
