PM Awards Winner
Bennetts Associates’ new headquarters for Camden Council – Five Pancras Square – has been handed the Prime Minister’s Better Public Building Award.
The 14-storey building was recognised at the British Construction Industry Awards which took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London last night (14 October).
The award, which was launched in 2001, recognises publicly funded projects that have completed on time, on budget and bring change to the community.
Bennett’s BREEAM Outstanding scheme houses a leisure centre, swimming pool, café, customer service centre and library alongside the council’s offices.
The project is one of the largest buildings to be completed so far in the southern quarter of Argent’s King’s Cross redevelopment, which also includes buildings by David Chipperfield Architects and Allies and Morrison.
Skills minister Nick Boles, said: ‘Five Pancras Square shows how government and construction firms working together can deliver innovative, environmental and cost effective buildings.’

London Velodrome – Prime Minister’s Better Public Building Winner for 2011
London 2012’s Velodrome was last night awarded the Prime Minister’s Better Public Building Award – a prestigious accolade that recognises the best of British design and service.
The 6,000-seat venue will host the Olympic and Paralympic track cycling events in 2012. After the Games, the legacy Velodrome will be used by elite athletes, local and wider communities and will include a café, bike-hire and cycle workshop facilities.
The Prime Minister’s Better Public Building Award, which has run for the past decade, recognises new buildings, places and spaces that improve the delivery of public services, give a sense of identity and community, are a source of local pride, and help build a sustainable future. It forms part of the British Construction Industry Awards and is sponsored jointly by the Cabinet Office and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.
