The winners of the 2018 Kent Design & Development Awards have been announced, and Gallagher Properties narrowly missed out on the top prize in the Commercial, Industrial and Retail category, sponsored by Cripps.
Gallagher Properties’ Nepicar Park at Wrotham, near Sevenoaks, was highly commended and among 30 projects who made the finals in eight categories.
Paul Carter, Leader of Kent County Council, said: “The design and construction of these buildings featured at the Kent Design & Development Awards are truly stunning and it shows how far we’ve come in design and build in the last 20 years.
“Quality makes a difference to where we live and work and these buildings and structures show to the world that Kent is the place to be.
“I would like to congratulate all the finalists and winners for showcasing Kent’s built environment and the spirit of partnership between the public and private sector, through the skills of our local architects, construction companies, developers and surveyors.
“There is a lot to be proud of in this county and all those who entered, were shortlisted and won, should be rightly proud of their achievements.”
Nick Yandle added: “Nepicar is a great success and the feedback from purchasers and occupiers has been hugely positive. This recognition by the Kent Design & Development Awards is one to be shared by everybody involved in the project.”
Sponsored by Kent County Council, planning and transport consultancy DHA and PR and marketing agency Maxim, the awards showcase the many excellent construction projects taking place across the county. They are held every two years.
