Chiswick development wins prestigious design award

Chiswick Business Park found itself in reputable company this week when it was bestowed with the prestigious Civic Trust Award alongside such renowned designs as The London Eye and The Tate Modern.

The Civic Trust Awards aim to highlight the very best urban and environmental design, over 500 projects “of an exceptional standard" were entered.

When announcing the winners they praised Chiswick Park stating “The architectural forms are sophisticated, elegant and immaculately detailed. The detailing and quality of the buildings is the outcome of a dynamic partnering arrangement between the design team, client and contractors. This development’s central design concept puts people first. Unlike most office developments this site, with its many amenities, is open to the public. Chiswick Park will be a catalyst for enhancing the local community as well as the businesses that move here.”

Ron German, of Stanhope plc, will receive the award on behalf of Chiswick Business Park from the Mayor of Hounslow, Cllr John Connelly at a ceremony planned for this Friday 21st February. Upon receiving news of this award, Ron German said: “We are extremely pleased that Chiswick Park has been recognised by the Civic Trust as an exemplar of civic design. Our aim has been to create a people focused placed where the Landscape, Architecture and Amenities would make a positive contribution to the work environment that would also benefit the local community.

“A lot of the credit for this achievement goes to the Architects The Richard Rogers Partnership, to our on site management team led by Kay Chaston and to the London Borough of Hounslow in supporting good design.”

Mike Jordan, Borough Planning Officer for the London Borough of Hounslow said: “We are delighted that a development in our borough has won such praise from the Civic Trust. Hounslow has an enormous amount going for it. With a number of important developments such as those in Hounslow, Feltham and Brentford, the next ten years will see the transformation of the borough into a thriving centre that can take its rightful place as the international gateway for London.

“As planners it is our role to work alongside developers to maximise the opportunities for our local community. If we work together, we can ensure that we can all benefit from high quality design such as Chiswick Park, as well increased access to jobs, leisure facilities and affordable homes.”
