Michelmores Property Awards 2018
The Michelmores Property Awards, now in its 16th year, is the region’s premier property awards, celebrating the very best of the region’s projects, buildings, businesses and people. This year saw ADG having two projects, both shortlisted, and our now retired director, Ian Potts, up for awards.
The first project, Mount Wise, was up for Best Residential Project (36 units & Over). ADG have been working alongside client, Hertford Investors, since 2008 in order to regenerate the former navel site. In view of its historic importance, the team has worked closely with both English Heritage and the Conservation Team at Plymouth City Council to arrive at the design approach. The plan sympathetically remodels the existing buildings and successfully integrates the new buildings into the historic setting. The final design combines 450 dwellings with a hotel, offices, a cafe and retail units.
The second project, STEM Hub at City College Plymouth, was up for Education Project of the Year. STEM, a central element of City College’s long term strategy, was to combine the Goschen facilities with the main King’s Road Campus. ADG were appointed to provide architectural design consultancy services in the development of this major education project.
Finally, Ian Potts was shortlisted to win The John Laurence Special Contribution Award, for his contribution to the region’s architecture. Ian was at the forefront of ADG’s inception back in 1985, and continued to push the envelope on how ADG created architecture and design up to his retirement at the end of 2017.
ADG are pleased to announce that both Mount Wise and Ian won their awards, with the STEM Hub being shortlisted from a long list of projects.
