Build Magazine’s 2016 Architecture Awards

Align named Best Multi-Sector Practice & Build Excellence Award for Education Buildings.
Posted by Admin

“The 2016 Architecture Awards recognises the exceptional work undertaken by firms in the global industry. The buildings and structures we live in and encounter shape the way we view the world, and therefore the Architecture industry has an important role to play in shaping the world as we know it”..

“Innovation, dedication and creativity are all key to success in this competitive and dynamic sector, as client’s demand increasingly new and expressive creations that do more than reflect the current industry trends”.

Having won the award last year we are proud to have been successful again this year, which reflects the time, dedication and services the Align team gives to our projects and clients. The second award for our education team is welcomed recognition of the experience and talent we have to offer, and we look forward to further exciting projects in this sector moving forwards.

“When it comes to the world of construction and property, one industry stands head and shoulders above all others in terms of capturing the imagination, bringing our cities and towns to life and creating landmarks and talking points that can last a lifetime”..

To distinguish ourselves from our competitors we focus on the client, to bring a high level of service and the best solution to the table. We believe the client should always be at the heart of the process.

We were delighted to have been nominated for this award in the first instance, so to have won is extra special. It would not have been possible without the support of our clients over the past eighteen months or without the dedication of the staff that make the practice what it is today.

“If I was to realize new buildings I should have to have new technique. I should have to design buildings that they would not only be appropriate to materials but design them so the machine that would have to make them could make them surpassingly well.”– Frank Lloyd Wright .

“You cannot simply put something new into a place. You have to absorb what you see around you, what exists on the land, and then use that knowledge along with contemporary thinking to interpret what you see.” – Tadao Ando
