“Our most successful stand yet…described as the “jewel in the crown” of the Exhibition Hall.
The new format succeeded in showcasing members work, with informative and entertaining panels highlighting the aims and aspirations of Practices, Health Clients and of course, Architects for Health. We were pleased to host many members on the stand and will be responding to all new membership and sponsorship enquiries received.
With our focus for the coming year covering topics including, designing for physical disability, bariatric design, neuro-rehab support, dementia and sensory impairment. We succeeded in tickling all the senses, visually the stand looked fantastic, the fox’s glacier fruits tasted great, our silent corner provided respite from the hubbub, whilst offering the most comfortable seats in the house, courtesy of Hitch Mylius. The sixth sense is in tune and say’s “submit next year to avoid disappointment” and avoid Clients asking you the question …”Where’s my scheme and why haven’t you submitted?”
Members who submitted entries for this year’s exhibition were not disappointed, together with having the opportunity of an award they all received the added bonus of their images being presented to the European Health Property Network (EuHPN) event in Copenhagen.
And so to the results of our “internationally judged competition” with. Gold, silver and bronze awards being presented in our Olympic year to:-
AfH Gold award 2012, BDP’s Alderhey Children’s Hospital AfH Silver award 2012, HLM’s Cynon Valley Community Hospital AfH bronze award 2012, P H + S’s Houghton-le-Spring Primary Care Centre
Our thanks go to Tye Farrow and John Cole for undertaking the judging, in what proved to be a broad range of entries.
A very successful event for all those involved, will you join in the fun next year?”
