Our new development at Stansfeld Park shortlisted for lots of awards

They say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder – and that has never been truer than when the Oxford Trust team look at our new Science Oxford Centre and Wood Centre for Innovation at Stansfeld Park in Headington! However, we may not be the only ones to be giving admiring glances to the development – Stansfeld has recently been short-listed for a number of prestigious awards.

Designed by local architects, ADP, and built by our project partners Beard Oxford, Stansfeld Park is in the running for two prestigious British Building and Construction Industry Awards– the Social Infrastructure Award and Community Engagement Initiative of the Year. A large judging team were recently shown round the site by Beard Project Manager, Kenneth Hale and our very own Project Operations Director, Matt Francis.

Beard Oxford has also received its own set of nominations. Kenneth has, quite rightly in our eyes, been shortlisted for Construction Manager of the Year for his hard work on Stansfeld Park. The company is also up for BRE’s Construction Excellence Award for projects under £10m.

And, last but not least, our development has been shortlisted for the Oxford Preservation Trust Awards, which celebrate good design and conservation – keeping the best of the old and encouraging the best of the new. We’ve been shortlisted in the New Building of the Year and Landscape/Natural Realm categories. The Stansfeld site remained hidden for almost 70 years, with limited access to the local community until the Trust bought it in 2016.  Now it’s providing a venue for science education, engagement and enterprise that the city, region and neighbouring community can enjoy and benefit from.

We are honoured and delighted to be shortlisted for so many prestigious awards – lets hope some of those admiring glances pay off!
