The Bridges Design Award Win
We’re thrilled to announce that Deloitte’s New Street Square Bridges have been awarded The Bridges Design Award (projects over £5 million) by The Bridges Awards 2022.
BPC played an integral part in this prestigious project, which drew on the talents of WilkinsonEyre as principal designer, Eckersley O’Callahan as architect and structural engineer, Seele Austria GmbH & Co as principal contractor and Overbury Major Projects as site contractor.
We were responsible for installing bespoke timber-slatted ceilings, plus linings, bulkheads and fire curtains. We also received excellent feedback on our work, scoring 10 for both attitude and recommendation in our Trade Contractor Assessment Scores.
The bridges connect 1 & 2 New Street Square, London. Bridges Awards judges said of the project as a whole: “Innovative solution to the level difference. Good for sustainability to have an energy (and maintenance) free solution by avoiding mechanical lifts. Also failsafe for wheelchair users and a good design solution to avoid interruption to views while giving a lighter appearance.”
Congratulations to all involved in the project. You can read more about the project on the Bridges Awards website here.
