We are delighted to have won an RIBA East Regional Award for the completed EcoHub at the awards ceremony in Cambridge.
The awards jury also redefined their own criteria and awarded a unique Special Award for Community Architecture; recognising the significant impact that this building and its’ landscape now make to the village.
‘…The Gamlingay Eco Hub is a remarkable testament to the power of local community and a committed architect. When the jury visited the building the fact that they struggled to find a parking space reinforced the view that this was no ordinary community centre. This is a thriving and financially successful business centre as well as a gathering point for the local population.
For the jury the whole project was inspirational in many ways and they felt very strongly that the project should receive the recognition it deserves. The significant involvement of the local community is what made this project happen and what makes it an ongoing success – for that RIBA East are delighted to give the whole team a special mention for Gamlingay Eco Hub’s outstanding contribution to society…’
