Judges’ Choice Winner


Company: Sarah Wigglesworth Architects

Project: Mellor Primary School

Mellor Primary School is a popular and successful school in the Cheshire village of Mellor, close to the Peak District national park. As pupil numbers have grown, Sarah Wigglesworth Architects were commissioned to design an extension to the existing school building, which was originally built in 1995. The low energy building aims to harmonise with its natural setting, using locally sourced natural materials while featuring a striking habitat wall which was designed and built in partnership with the school’s pupils.

The STA are proud to have sponsored this year’s Structural Timber Awards, which saw record entries and brought together the industry to celebrate the best use of structural timber in the UK. We are delighted to say that these Awards have proven to be a rich vein of stunning architectural design and engineering entries, reflecting the economic indicators for the industry and a growing confidence in the use of structural timber within the UK construction sector.

There were over 200 high quality submissions across all categories and the competition was fierce.

Structural Timber Magazine have launched the Structural Timber Awards Special Edition issue to mark the event. This unique publication highlights all of the winning individuals, businesses and projects from the evening and we are pleased to include a review of each category in this newsletter.
