Kent Design & Developments Awards 2018

22nd August 2018

Kent’s best design and development projects go head-to-head

Eighty projects across Kent will battle it out to see which is crowned Project of the Year in the Kent Design & Development Awards 2018.

Entries for the awards – which are jointly organised and sponsored by Kent County Council, DHA Planning and Maxim, the PR and marketing agency – have now closed and the judges will soon be starting work on shortlisting them.

Kent Design & Development Awards take place every two years and 2016 saw The Wing at Capel-le-Ferne take the top prize for the level of its design quality.

The awards are divided into the six categories, which give organisations involved in the county’s built environment the opportunity to demonstrate how they are using their skills to develop and regenerate the county.

The categories are: Commercial, Industrial and Retail; Conservation; Environmental Performance; Infrastructure and Renewables; Public Buildings – Education and Community; and Residential – Minor and Major. Project of the Year is then selected from among the winners.

DHA Planning, Kent County Council and Maxim are joined in delivering the awards by category sponsors Cripps; CTP Consulting Engineers; Kent Construction Focus Group; the Kent Environment Strategy; the Rochester Bridge Trust and Sibley Pares. Further support is provided by Quinn Estates, Gallagher, and Penenden Heath Developments.

Mark Presland of Sibley Pares said: “As an independent firm of chartered surveyors and estate agents, Sibley Pares has considerable experience of properties in Kent and the south east. We are pleased to sponsor the Residential category in the Kent Design & Development Awards and look forward to seeing which developments make the shortlist and go on to become the winners.”
