Awards for two University of Brighton projects

Hassell’s University of Brighton projects honoured with two awards at the 25th annual Sussex Heritage Trust Awards. 

At the highly regarded Sussex Heritage Trust Awards held in the UK this week, Hassell was honoured with the Large Scale Residential Award for Mithras Student Village and was Highly Commended in the Public and Community category for Brighton Business School, both part of our successful University of Brighton redevelopment. These were highly contested categories with the UK’s National Trust as key competition. 

The Sussex Heritage Trust Awards recognise and reward the highest quality conservation, restoration and good design of newly built projects while encouraging the use of traditional skills and crafts. 

These awards wonderfully represent the skills and craft of building in highly sensitive local contexts, both for historic and new builds, and are judged on making an outstanding contribution to community and environment.”
