Building Division's North East Region are extremely proud that the new NGS Macmillan Unit at Chesterfield Royal Hospital was awarded the prestigious RIBA East Midlands Building of the Year at the recent 2018 awards ceremony. The project also won Project Architect of the Year 2018 for the Manser Practice and the Trust secured the East Midlands Client of the Year 2018 award.
The external elevations of the building are constructed of white Corian Cladding which the judges commented 'Creates a building of great elegance and reinforces the sense of quality. The contrast of the white Corian panels with the carefully selected planting scheme is a truly uplifting place to be, for patients, visitors and staff alike. The project team have steered this building at every turn through a process of careful reflection to ensure the best possible outcomes for patient experience and well-being'.
Keith Shivers, Regional Director for Building North East said "Our team are immensely proud that their hard work and dedication in constructing this very difficult building has been rewarded by this prestigious award and we are equally proud that our efforts for the Client, and particularly for the patients and users of the building have been recognised. We are delighted to be associated with a facility which creates a welcoming environment for the patient journey during the treatment cycle".
