CIHT Awards 2017

Author: Andreas Markides Posted: 15 June 2017

The Annual Awards ceremony was held at a very unique and beautiful Troxy in London. I had the pleasure of presenting the CIHT Streets and Places Award to the winners, North Midland Construction PLC and Sheffield City Council for their entry ‘Grey to Green Phase 1 – Sheffield Riverside Business District'.

Congratulations to the CIHT organising team for another brilliant event, and many thanks to all the organisations that submitted entries for the Awards, and the judges for their hard work in selecting the shortlists and winners. As a judge myself over the last few years, I appreciate how difficult a job it is, selecting from the many entries which are all of an outstanding standard.
And the winner is

Did you know…

Eddington is the University of Cambridge’s ‘’exemplary sustainable community’’ on the NW edge of the city. When fully developed by 2027, it will provide 3,000 homes and 2,000 student bedrooms.
The greenest aspect of Eddington is that car travel(and even owning a car) is strongly discouraged. Every new resident has a meeting with a travel planner who advises on alternatives to driving.
There is only one parking space for every four or five flats reserved for university staff, who will occupy half the 3,000 homes. Renting a parking space costs £85/month and only a handful of the first hundred residents have so far bought a car.
Even the luxury homes have no driveways and visitors arriving by car will have to pay for parking if they stay more than 90 minutes. A total of 12,000 bike spaces will be provided for a development of 8,500 residents.
