Munro Building Services have worked closely with The Henry Moore Foundation since 2015. Firstly, our contracts team provided the initial M&E installation for the museum and archive centre, which was followed by a planned and reactive maintenance service carried out by our team at Chelmsford, Essex. With this in mind, Munro are very proud and excited to hear that the project has won a place as an Eastern Regional Finalist for the 2018 Civic Trust Awards.
The Civic Trust Awards scheme was established in 1959 to recognise outstanding architecture, planning and design in the built environment. The applicants for the 2018 awards have just been notified as to whether they have been successful during the first stage assessment and considered Regional Finalists.
These Regional Finalists, including The Henry Moore Foundation, will be put forward to the Civic Trust Awards, AABC and Selwyn Goldsmith Award National Panels on 14th December where the decision will be made as to whether they will be crowned one of the 2018 winners. All winning projects will be invited to attend the official 58th Annual Civic Trust Awards Ceremony taking place on Friday 9th March 2018.
Making an Award-Winning Project
The Henry Moore Foundation, which was designed by Hugh Broughton Architects was a project that would commemorate the life and works of renowned artist Henry Moore, known best for his abstract sculptures. The project required precision and accuracy, with a particular emphasis on providing easily controlled ventilation systems for the archive rooms that would enable them to protect the historic and valuable artefacts from damage or decay. You can read more about our mechanical and electrical installations completed at The Henry Moore Foundation here.
In the meantime, we will keep you updated during the next stage of the competition and good luck to the project team who brought the project to life.
