Humber Enterprise Park shortlisted for Building Project of the Year in CEYH Awards
By Humber Enterprise Park | Posted: 7 Jun 2017
The Humber Enterprise Park in Brough has been shortlisted for the Building Project of the Year award in the 2017 Constructing Excellence in Yorkshire & Humber Awards following its £6m regeneration.
Now in its tenth year, the awards night celebrates the best the regional construction industry has to offer and recognises the pioneering individuals, projects and organisations that are moving the sector forward. The Buildings Project of the Year category judges nominees on teamwork, cost, health and safety standards, environmental impacts, customer satisfaction, innovation and technical achievement.
A number of local companies collaboratively worked on the Humber Enterprise Park project, which was completed in June 2016. The main focus of the process was on the high-end refurbishment of 5 empty office buildings covering 4930sqm, which were each given their own feel and identity under the names Hawk, Firebrand, Mercury, Buccaneer and Bluebird.
A modern and minimalistic approach has given the offices new life. Each space has a colour scheme to match the vapour trails of the sites logo, which honours the sites origins as the place where the pioneer Robert Blackburn manufactured airplanes in the early 20th Century.
Each building entrance features vinyl wraps depicting the aircraft that have given their name to the buildings, with breakout areas and exposed ceilings adding a modern touch. A selection of murals and vinyl wraps around the site further celebrate its history.
The project was completed with the help of Gent Visick Carlton Tower, FHP ESS, LOROC Architects, So Vibrant, Key Property Solutions Ltd, DSM, Black Cat Services, Spray Creative and 4D creations.
The awards take place on Friday 7th of July at the Queen’s Hotel in Leeds. View the Humber Enterprise Park’s available refurbished office spaces here.
