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…

Thirty years ago the London Docklands were a desolate place. Today we have a mini-city with 16m sq ft of offices and 1m sq ft of shops, employing more than 120,000 people, almost as many as the population of Cambridge and 50% more than the financial centre of Frankfurt.
 
How was this achieved? In addition to collaboration and political will, it's  all about the power of transport!
 
London Docklands is now connected with the DLR, the Jubilee line, Thameslink, Network Rail's overground network, Crossrail, HS1 and London City airport.
 
So, if Canary Wharf is the heart of the Docklands, transport constitutes the arteries and veins that link it to the rest of the world.
