Huddersfield Design Awards 2016

Posted on 11 October 2016 by David Wyles

Civic Society Members and the general public are invited to nominate their favourite buildings in our annual Design Awards.

You can nominate buildings within four categories – Best New Development, Best Shop Front, Best Refurbishment and Best Residential Development and 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 2014 and 31st December 2016.

Members have until the 31st of December 2016 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 in March 2017.

Consideration will be given to the following in determining the winning categories:

Quality of Design and Materials

Appropriateness to Street Setting and Adjacent Property

Functionality

Accessibility

Contribution to Environmental Sustainability

Quality of Landscaping

See the 'Design Awards' page on the web site for further information. We look forward to receiving your nominations.
