JustFacades success at the Brick Awards 2015
Hilton Park Lane - 18th November 2015

JustFacades.com always appreciate media recognition and extend a big well done to Make Architects for winning the BDA Chairman’s Award for Eight Artillery Row by LBS Properties.

We worked with Make Architects to develop a special blend and texture from MBH Charnwood Brickworks in Leicestershire, but that was the easy part! Project managing the brickwork supply and prefabricated brickwork was a lot harder, but the outcome is fantastic and we have made some great friends along the way. A massive well done to MBH plc for supplying so many special shapes and meeting the deadlines.

“This is the major refurbishment of a 1960s concrete office block to create 21 flats. With inaccuracies in the basic frame of the building, the brickwork had to be meticulous, and the new brick façade makes a really positive contribution to the street scene. The careful attention to detail has produced a sustainable building, and with many brick specials incorporated in complex elevations it provides an incredibly successful response to a demanding design. This building exemplifies the kind of refurbishment project that we need if we are to regenerate our inner cities areas in a sustainable way and create the kind of environments which people value and where they want to live.” - BDA Chairman's Award
