Two of Galliford Try’s most innovative projects have been named winners at a virtual ceremony for the 2020 Structural Timber Awards (STA).
Kingsteignton Primary School in Devon, built to Galliford Try’s Optimum Schools principles, won the award for SIPs (Structural Insulation Panels) Project of the Year. The school used structural panels provided by Innovaré Systems, contributing to a time-saving of 14 weeks on the project.
Meanwhile, the Republic Masterplan at East India Dock, submitted by consultants Heyne Tillett Steel and architects Studio RHE, won the awards for Commercial Project of the Year and Solid Wood Project of the Year. The office space uses structural timber extensively, including the stunning atrium area of the Import Building.
Ian Jubb, Managing Director of Galliford Try Building, commented: “These two outstanding projects demonstrate the innovation of our business, creating a fantastic school building in Kingsteignton at pace using modern methods of construction, while Republic is a truly inspirational working environment. I congratulate everyone involved in the two projects on their success.”
