Hillington Square Wins Awards!


The good news keeps coming in about Hillington Square!

Not long ago, we wrote a post about Hillington Square being nominated in the National Housing Awards for Best Marketing Campaign. The awards took place a couple of weeks ago and although we didn’t win we did get highly commended from the judging panel.

Wait, there’s more!

Hillington Square was nominated and won the Housing category in the Architects’ Journal Retrofit awards.

Also, Architects mae LLP, entered the Hillington Square project in to the RTPI (Royal Town Planning Institute) Planning Achievement Award and Hillington Square was named as a joint winner in the East of England regional awards. The honour was shared with Evolution Town Planning.

And finally Hillington Square is also up for Best Refurbishment Project at the annual Brick Awards with the Brick Development Association, the winners of which will be announced in early November.
