London Construction Awards 2019
Here at BCL we are delighted to announce that we have made the shortlist for three awards at this year’s London Construction Awards. For our work on London Bridge Station we have been nominated for Architectural Project of the Year, Regeneration Project of the Year and Fit-Out Project of the Year.
Designed by Grimshaw Architects, the £1 billion redevelopment of London Bridge took 5 years to complete, with our Western Red Cedar panels as the main feature of the new concourse, covering over 7000 square metres in three distinct patterns. This ceiling system is clad with high acoustic performance Alpha panels, which provide both class A and B acoustics, perfect for a busy station as the open space effectively absorbs sound from the passengers and trains, reducing the overall level of noise. Using our secret fixings for a smooth finish with integrated lighting troughs, the panels have also been structured in a way that protects from an upward blast in the event of a terrorist threat, given the prominence of the station.
BCL ensured the highest standard of work was produced, with support and knowledge through every step, from design to installation. This striking project has already been named winner of the RIBA London Award and Project of the Year from AJ100 2019, and is currently in the shortlist for the prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize. It is a huge achievement to be shortlisted for three more awards and we are pleased to see our panels getting the recognition they deserve. We’re looking forward to the result on November 27th.
