In an age of stretched resources and a pressing need for sustainable developments it has never been more important to show innovation in designing our built environment.

Now in its second year, the design and development award, sponsored by the Paul Robinson Partnership recognises and honours those adopting a pioneering approach in our area.

And there is no question that the quality of our surroundings strongly influences how we feel about the places were we live and work and play.

Judges for this EDP Business Awards category are keen to find projects combining imaginative designs with practical and forward thinking ideas.

Last year’s winners were RG Carter/Jarrold for the Jarrold Bridge, which wowed judges with its clever and creative double propped cantilever design which created an illusion of no support.

Simon Nicholas, partner at the Paul Robinson Partnership, said: “We work, live in and view our built environment every day. This includes sustainable developments and green spaces and involves our physical environments which are designed with our health and communities in mind.

“How a building or space is designed contributes to how we view the world, how we feel, and gives an impression of the area we are in.

In our region we mix history with modern architecture, wide open spaces with forward thinking sustainable methods,” he added. “The importance of what we build in our region is paramount to the local economy providing work space, living accommodation and outside areas for the wellbeing of everyone who lives here and visits.

“We are looking for outstanding projects to showcase all that can be achieved with our communities and sustainability in mind’.
