We are delighted to be a co-sponsor of the Yorkshire & The North East region for the National Student Awards 2016. David Timbs recently took his place on the judging panel for the record number of 12 regional finalists on 21 March 2016. Due to the extremely high standard of all the candidates being interviewed the judging panel had a hard time to come to a final decision. We are very happy to announce that at last night’s awards dinner Yasmine Lunn from Sheffield Hallam University was the regional winner with two other competitors highly commended by the judges, Jenna Whitehead and Charlotte Dennis, both are also studying at Sheffield Hallam University. We look forward to seeing Yasmine at the National Awards Dinner in September and wish all of this year’s entrants the best of luck with their future endeavours.

Thorpe Hall Project Scopes Prize at Awards
We are delighted to announce that after practical completion was achieved for this scheme in May 2015 this project has won two ‘Highly Commended’ certificates for the Best End of Life Care Development and the Award for Estates Improvement at the prestigious Building Better Healthcare Awards held today in London.
Christopher Smith Associates have been involved in this project since April 2012 due to extensive enabling and remedial works to the listed building being required before the new build and remodelling works could start. The new hospice has been designed both to fit sympathetically into the listed building environment as well as incorporating the varying needs of patients and their reactions to the built environment. The basis of design is to allow privacy for patients and their families with single bedded rooms with en-suite facilities but also to allow them visual and physical access to the gardens.
