Vanguard Building wins first ever National Constructing Excellence Net Zero Award

We’re thrilled to share the news that our state-of-the-art teaching hub project at Meole Brace School in Shrewsbury has won the first ever National Constructing Excellence Net Zero Award.

The 16th National Constructing Excellence Awards took place in London on Friday 18th November with our Client Read Construction in attendance to receive the award on behalf of the team.

The National Awards showcase excellence in the built environment across England and Wales, bringing together the regional winners from sixteen different categories to celebrate the very best of the best.

Earlier in the year, the Vanguard Building won the Net Zero Award at the West Midlands Constructing Excellence Awards with our Operations Director Peter Lyke attending with some of the project team.

The Vanguard Building was designed to ensure Net Zero Operational Carbon and was built to achieve the internationally respected Passivhaus standard.

Davies Partnership were the appointed MEP Consultant for the scheme with our Sustainability team advising on the Zero Carbon and Passivhaus requirements. This included bespoke detailing in relation to the building fabric, cold bridging, and junctions to achieve the Passivhaus criteria and low air permeability criteria.

It was a pleasure to have worked alongside a fantastic team on the project and to receive the perfect recognition in the form of a National Award win.
