Our Marketing Suite at Taylor Wimpey’s luxurious Halstead Grange development in Goffs Oak, Hertfordshire, has won recognition for its exceptional design.
The marketing suite, designed by our in-house architect practice GROW Design Studio, was commended in the Alan King Award for Excellence in Architectural Technology at the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists (CIAT) Awards last November.
Adam Jackson, Managing Director at GROW Design Studio, says: “We were delighted to work with our clients, Focus Experiential, on this project, and even more so to be recognised by the Chartered Institute for our work.
“The building was designed to be fast and simple to assemble and disassemble and to be re-useable, assets recognised by the award judges. Demonstrating a modern and simple design approach so as not to detract from the homes for sale, this modest building fits the brief for our clients and goes some way to show the wider industry that pre-fabrication and the use of modern methods of construction can be utilised for all building types.”
The suite uses a Glulam structural frame and a closed panel timber frame system for the external walls for both aesthetic reasons and sustainability. The front and rear of the building was constructed using full height aluminium framed glazing.
Ben Tucker, Managing Director at Focus Experiential, says: “This award is proof that taking risks when designing a sales space pays off and we are delighted our hard work has been recognised. GROW Design Studio interpreted our brief fantastically and designed a space that not only gave gravitas to the housing development but improved off-plan sales”
Following GROWs’ commended win for the design of Goff’s Oak marketing suite at the Chartered Institute of Architectural Technologists awards last November, CIAT have prepared a plaque for the building which they presented on Wednesday 21st June.
