270 people attended the 9th LABC East Anglia awards event held at St Andrew's Hall, Norwich which was hosted by David Whittley, presenter for BBC Look East and BBC Radio Norfolk. The event was also attended by LABC president Peter Keates.
The 'listed' 18m high tower forms an integral part of Hopkins Homes vision to restore this once magnificent building back to its former glory. Originally dating from the 1800's many original features have been retained or sympathetically recreated by skilled craftsmen using traditional techniques that blend seamlessly with an interior of the highest specification. This truly historic building has not only been wonderfully restored, but saved for future generations to enjoy. This is not just a conversation project but a project that has regenerated a rejuvenated a derelict building into a bespoke, contemporary home of the future.
Speaking after the event, David Whittley said: "It was a real honour to host the LABC Awards for 2015. We often take for granted the buildings we see, use and live in, but behind every project is a team of highly skilled and creative people bringing these buildings to life. They often go unnoticed, that's why the awards are so important to highlight the work of these talented individuals and teams and it's wonderful to be able to celebrate their work with these prestigious awards."
