Hubert Perrodo Building shortlisted for award
The award-winning Hubert Perrodo Building has been shortlisted for an award at the prestigious 2018 Building Awards.
The Hubert Perrodo Building, which earlier this year was recognised with a RIBA South Award, has been nominated alongside projects from around the country in the Small Project of the Year category.
The Hubert Perrodo Building was officially opened in March by the Chancellor of the University of Oxford, Lord Patten of Barnes, along with St Peter’s Master, Mark Damazer CBE, and members of the Perrodo family, whose generous donation to the college, one of the largest in its history, has made the work possible. Located in the college's Chavasse Quad, the building has a public space on the ground floor, six en-suite rooms, and a meeting room on the top floor with a veranda that offers superb views over the college. It is the first multi-level building to be built on the college’s main site in thirty years. It was designed by the Winchester-based architectural firm, Design Engine.
Building is one of the UK’s oldest business-to-business magazines, launched as The Builder in 1843 by Joseph Aloysius Hansom (1803-1882). The Building Awards are considered to be the most prestigious awards in the construction industry, and honour the contractors, housebuilders and consultants who have performed best in the previous year.
The 2018 Awards ceremony will be held in London on 6 November 2018.
Design Engine were recently chosen to act as architects for the college's new Castle Hill House Project.
