The Curve Wins Thames Valley Property Award 2017

It has been confirmed that The Curve has won a Thames Valley Property Award in the category of ‘Development of the Year’.

The Curve made up one of four fantastic buildings to reach the finalists. The Curve was amongst other great displays of architecture in the group, competing against: Imperial Way (Reading), Longwalk Road (Stockley Park) and the Thames Valley Science Park.

The category is for projects that display an ability to create an exciting new development, which exemplifies high industry standards. This category perfectly summarises The Curve and matches the goals for the building set by the ambitious Slough Urban Renewal team.

This is the second award in the space of a week for The Curve, having won an LABC award just a few days earlier. With a building as stunning as The Curve, we are sure this will not be the last time it is recognised for awards.

The Curve Wins LABC Award

Fantastic news this week that The Curve, the community hub located in the heart of Slough, has won an LABC award.

News emerged in March that The Curve had been nominated in the ‘Best in the Public Service Building category’, a category filled with amazing feats of architecture.

The Curve is a worthy winner, not only featuring fantastic facilities for the local community, including a library, performance venue and café, but also for its visually striking and modern look.

The local community has clearly taken well to their new library, receiving an estimated 38,000 weekly footfall, double that of the old library.

The striking and modern look of The Curve is achieved through a combination of curved curtain walling and brise soleil. Colorminium worked closely with the architects to design the complex yet sleek look that The Curve so excellently achieves.

Finally, congratulations to Bblur Architecture and Morgan Sindall for the award.

131 Sloane Street Shortlisted for RIBA London Awards 2017

News emerged this week that 131 Sloane Street has been shortlisted for a Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) London 2017 Award; an award highly respected in the construction industry.

127 – 135 Sloane Street was completed in January 2016 and is used as both offices and retail space. The building utilises a mixture of architectural systems and engineering to create the modern and visually striking image that is prominent in the region between Knightsbridge and Sloane Square.

Project Manager for the building, Josh Shimwell, stated: “Sloane Street is a fantastic building and I loved every minute of working on the project”. Josh continued to state: “The extensive use of different materials, perhaps most notably bronze, really helps to make the building standout in an area thriving with great architecture”.

“It is always great to hear a project you have worked on has been recognised at such a high level, everybody involved should be very proud of what they have achieved”.

“We thoroughly enjoyed working with Stiff & Trevillion, and bringing their creation to life”.

Colorminium have previous experience with the Royal institute of British Architects, with both Bonhams Auction House and JW3, to name a few, collecting multiple awards.

The Curve is not only visually striking and eye-catching, but also a fantastic hub for learning and socialising with a café, garden area, performance hall and learning rooms.

On hearing of the nomination Kieran Mallinson (Business Development Director at Colorminium) stated: “We are both overjoyed and proud to hear that The Curve is being recognised for awards, it is a project close to our hearts and frankly one of our stand-out accomplishments”.
