Cripps is delighted to be supporting the Kent Design & Development Awards 2018. 

Jointly organised and sponsored by DHA Planning, Kent County Council and Maxim PR, the awards take place every two years and celebrate the best of the Kent property and construction industry.  

Nominations are now open across the six categories: commercial, industrial and retail; conservation; environmental performance; infrastructure and renewables; public Buildings – education and community; and residential – minor and major. 

Paul Carter, leader of Kent County Council, commented: “These awards showcase Kent’s built environment and epitomise the longstanding spirit of partnership between the public and private sector, through the skills of our local architects, construction companies, developers and surveyors.

“There have been many changes to the economic landscape since the last awards in 2016 and Kent is determined to show itself to the best possible advantage. There is a lot to be proud of in this county, and having good quality buildings and structures is a way of showing to the world that Kent is the place to be.”

Cripps is sponsoring the commercial, industrial and retail category at the awards.  Mike Scott, partner and head of real estate said: “This category represents an important aspect of the county’s development scene, not least for its impact on the business community which requires good quality premises to operate from. Our work means we often work with clients on the development, purchase or sale of commercial property and we are pleased to have this opportunity to support the sector.”

The deadline for entering the Kent Design & Development Awards 2018 via www.kentdesigndevelopmentawards.co.uk is July 31.

Shortlisted schemes will be notified in September, with an awards ceremony taking place on November 8.
