We’re delighted that two of ADP’s projects were announced award winners at RICS South East Social Impact Awards last week.
The Stokes Centre for Urology won the coveted Project of the Year award as well as Best Healthcare Project.
The Project of the Year award is presented to the project which has been judged overall as an excellent example of best practice by professionals working in both the built and natural environments. The judges said:
“The Stokes Centre for Urology in Guildford has seen the ‘The Prostate Project’ charity collaborate with the NHS to create a sector-leading new-build facility for treating prostate cancer patients. Utilising £2m of community fundraising, this innovative partnership has enabled the new NHS facility to be built to a standard akin to a private facility. In doing so, the partnership has created a new blueprint for how the NHS and charities can collaborate to deliver world-class facilities and care for patients.”
Our third win of the day went to the Stansfeld Centre for Innovation and Science, which was successful in the Education category. The judges commented:
“The Stansfeld Centre, the UK’s first integrated indoor-outdoor science centre, has had an enormous, inspirational effect on the young people it is designed to serve. Created by the Oxford Trust, a charitable body that encourages the study of science and enterprise, it provides life-changing opportunities for young people to interact with STEM subjects in a creatively-designed environment. It has already brought huge benefits to the people of the region, successfully engaging local schools, teachers, pupils and volunteers in its activities.”
Congratulations to everyone involved in these projects!
