  • Pat Gallagher with sculptor Jason Mulligan

The finalists in the 2014 Kent Design and Development Awards have been announced. These awards celebrate design and construction excellence and take place every two years.

The winners of the awards, which will be announced on 6th November, will receive a hand-carved Kentish Ragstone trophy, which has been sponsored by the Gallagher Group.

Sculpted by Jason Mulligan, the material for the trophies is being provided by Gallagher Group from its Hermitage Quarry. A member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors, Jason works from the appropriately named Quarry Farm in Nettlestead, near Maidstone.

Hermitage Quarry is the last site offering high quality Kentish Ragstone, and this will be the second time Gallagher Group has provided the materials for the trophies.
