Fifteen honoured in CABE's alternative Festive Five Awards for good design

  • Comment

CABE has unveiled its Festive Five Awards, the design watchdog's alternative honours for 'championing good design'.

This year it has handed out 15 awards in three different categories: public sector organisations, private companies and individuals.

CABE chief executive Jon Rouse highlighted Horsham District Council chief executive Martin Pearson, who retires this year. Rouse said he deserved the award for 'spending the best part of 15-20 years trying to knock a suburban town into shape'.

Rouse also said he was pleased the BBC had landed a prize.

He said this award was made in memory of the project director on MacCormac Jamieson Pritchard's redevelopment of Broadcasting House, Chris Evans, who died this year. 'Evans was really the driving force behind that project, ' he added.

The other awards in the public sector organisation category went to Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council, Octavia Housing and Care, the North West Development Agency and Bournemouth Borough Council.

The remaining individual winners were Liverpool councillor Beatrice Fraenkel, Hastings head of regeneration Caroline Lwin, Bury headteacher Clare Barker and NHS trust chair Alastair MacDonald.

In the private company category the winners were Swiss Re, Berkeley Homes, Grosvenor Estates, the Argent Group and 3Es Enterprises.
