The redevelopment of the former Herman Miller Factory into Bath Spa University’s Locksbrook Campus has been recognised with a prestigious property award.
The annual Michelmores’ Property Awards, now in their 18th year, reward the very best South West property and construction schemes, as well as the teams involved in them.
Michelmores hosted a virtual celebration on Thursday 12th November to announce the winning schemes.
Locksbrook Campus, part of Bath Spa University, took the top award in the Heritage Project of the Year category.
The development transformed the listed Herman Miller Factory, built in 1976 and designed by renowned architect Nicholas Grimshaw, into a creative facility for art and design students.
Architect Rachel Bell, who joined the panel of judges this year’s Michelmores Property Awards, said: “The Locksbrook Campus scheme is a very distinctive building with really innovative ideas and a great community spirit. Congratulations to the team involved in this impressive re-development.”
Commenting on the scheme, Emma Honey, Head of Property at Michelmores said: “The South West’s property and construction industry has shown itself to be a force to be reckoned with during the past eight months. We have all experienced a period of unprecedented change and uncertainty – yet our industry and those work
“ing within it are showing great resilience. There has never been a better time to celebrate what is great about the South West’s property and construction industry and this scheme represents such excellence in the industry. Congratulations to Locksbrook Campus, a worthy winner.”
