Cantifix project Enfield Town Library has won the prestigious design award ‘Best Built Project’ at the 2011 London Planning Awards, and has achieved a BREEAM rating of excellent.
The awards showcase the best examples of public sector and private developments, and aim to inspire planners to create high-quality buildings and spaces.
London Mayor Boris Johnson applauded the development as a “bold and successful architectural intervention”, and said that it bought a “real sense of town centre renewal”.
The library, in the heart of the Enfield Town Conservation Area, re-opened its doors in March 2010. It was designed with the environment in mind, and aspired to be a friendly and welcoming building.
Cantifix supplied and installed the 2 storey north-facing glazed enclosure, sliding doors, frameless glass canopy, structurally bonded roof-lights and glass beams.
The much-loved building now offers excellent views of the Green, and the natural light brought into the building by the Cantifix glazing enhances the visitor’s experience.
Cantifix Director Charlie Sharman said of the award, “This building shows the commitment that all parties made towards the innovative design. To succeed with this type of project takes understanding and cooperation throughout and Cantifix are very proud to have been part of this Construction Team, which has been rightly recognised.”
The architects on this project were Shepheard Epstein Hunter, and the contractors were Mulalley & Co. Ltd.
