HCS DESIGN AWARDS 2013
In 2012 Huddersfield Civic Society launched its first design awards and, following nominations submitted by our members and the general public, winners were announced and trophies presents at an awards’ ceremony in March 2013.
It’s now time for Civic Society Members to nominate their favourite buildings in the HCS’s Design Awards 2013.
Once again you can vote for buildings within four categories – Best New Development, Best Shop Front, Best Refurbishment and Best Residential Development. However, this year you can nominate as many buildings as you like from each category. In addition the society again will be teaming up with the Examiner so its readers have a chance to vote for the development which they feel has contributed most towards helping improve the quality and image of the town.
Nominated buildings should fall within the former Huddersfield borough boundary, that is between Outlane and Fixby in the north, Berry Brow and Almondbury in the south, Milnsbridge in the west and Cooper Bridge and Waterloo in the east. Projects must have been completed between 1st July 2011 and 31st December 2013.
Members have until the 31st December 2013 to submit their choices. From nominations submitted, a panel will choose the winners from each category and decide who receives the ‘Examiner readers’ award’. These winners will receive plaques and an HCS trophy will be awarded to the outright winner at an event early in 2013.
Last year’s winners were 44 Westgate; Merrie England, Westgate; Consevatory/Cafe, Greenhead Park and 41 Lamb Hall Road, with 44 Westgate being judged both the overall winner and the Examiner readers’ favourite, so we will not accept nominations for these buildings in the 2013 awards.
Consideration will be given to the following in determining the winning categories:
- Quality of Design and Materials
- Appropriateness to Street Setting and Adjacent Property
- Contribution to Environmental Sustainability
- Quality of Landscaping
Nominations should be sent to R. Huddleston, 3 Booth Bank, Slaithwaite, Huddersfield HD7 5XA or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
