Project of the Year Win at Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber Awards

The Moxy Hotel in York, project and cost managed by Faithful+Gould, has scooped the prestigious ‘Project of the Year’ at the Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber (CEYH) Awards 2020.

Taking place on Thursday 22nd October as a virtual ceremony, the awards were a celebration of the Yorkshire and Humber built environment sector, designed to showcase excellence and celebrate the achievements of organisations across the region.

Scooping the esteemed accolade, the new 118-bedroom, modular-build Moxy Hotel in the centre of York was the first to be constructed using Cross Laminated Timber (CLT) panels, manufactured off-site in Italy and transported to the UK. Built in a conservation area, an extensive archaeological dig led to excavation of multiple artefacts, now on display at York Archaeological Trust.

Faithful+Gould’s excellence in project management and cost management services supported the delivery of this award-winning development for key client Vastint Hospitality, who chose to procure this project using Construction Management as the preferred procurement route. Adrian Noble, Associate Director and project lead for the Moxy Hotel development, said: “We’re honoured that this project has received the award, however the real winner is the industry itself. The construction sector is responding positively and proactively to economic uncertainty, committing to high standards and striving to change the way that it builds for the better.”

As regional winners of the award category, Faithful+Gould now go on to represent Yorkshire and Humber at the National Constructing Excellence Awards in early 2021. Adrian continued: “With a double-win at the Constructing Excellence in the North East Awards too, we are incredibly proud to be representing service excellence across the UK construction industry.”

Shortlisted for two other categories at the CEYH Awards, we were also received Highly Commended recognition in the ‘Integration & Collaborative Working’ category for the £3.9m refurbishment of Hull York Medical School's teaching facilities at the University of York.
