Cambridge Design and Construction Awards

Our Simon Sainsbury Centre at Cambridge Judge Business School has won the Cambridge Design & Construction Award for Best Conservation, Alteration and Extension.

The judges found that the new Sainsbury Centre extension to the 19th Century Hospital building (previously altered and converted to designs by John Outram for the Judge Business School) “delivered a masterful massing and composition to the side of the building facing Downing College and Tennis Court Road.”

According to the jury: “The external materials and composition of the façade is a delight. The design carefully knits a new and very different architectural style into the framework of Outram’s earlier interventions. The quality of the construction, especially the exposed frame, was applauded. The new extension integrates well into the tight constraints of the site in this very built up part of the city.”
