British Construction Industry Awards, Regeneration Award, Winner
The Bridge Arts Centre
The Bridge Arts Centre in Easterhouse picked up the Regeneration Award at the British Construction Industry (BCI) Awards ceremony in London on 10 October 2007.
The criteria for the award were: ‘For a project of any size which has made a significant contribution to the regeneration of an under-privileged area or the creation of new facilities or accommodation which has made exceptional use of brownfield sites’. The judges comments read, “Six years in the planning, the centre has created a great community resource against the odds and with limited financial resource”, and “An intelligent choice of materials responds to the varied uses of the interior spaces.”
The Bridge, also a finalist for the BCI Prime Minister’s Better Public Building Award and BCI Building Award, was the only Scottish project represented at the national awards.
