IHEEM 2015 AfH Design Award Winner’s Presentations

The Architects for Health Design Awards are unique in that the winners are selected by a panel of fellow practitioners. Those designs selected for awards represent the best work in the field and expert recognition of quality and innovation. The awards, kindly sponsored by Vinci and Carillion, were made at the European Healthcare Design Congress; this event held at the Healthcare Estates Conference at the Manchester Central conference centre offered the winners an opportunity to showcase their projects.

Each winning team made their presentations at the Exhibition Theatre next to the Architects for Health stand at the event in which had accumulated an audience larger than some of the main conference events with a standing crowd spilling over onto the surrounding exhibition space.

Best New Building Award winner, The Lane Fox REMEO Respiratory Centre was presented by Marc Levinson a Partner at Murphy Philipps Architects. An outstanding health care building that helps to transform care services.
