A project delivered by Diamond Special Works has been recognised at the London LABC Building Excellence Awards.
The Tailoring Academy at Finsbury Park was crowned Best Small Commercial Project at the awards, which praise building excellence and the people who go the extra mile to deliver their work.
Designed by Jan Kattein Architects, the Tailoring Academy was developed through a partnership between Haringey Council and social enterprise, Fashion Enter. It’s a new working and learning environment aimed at helping to bring garment production for high street brands back to London.
Diamond Special Works was responsible for transforming the ground floor of an existing warehouse into the new contemporary space, which features a folded timber and glass screen that surrounds pockets of workspace. The refurbishment comprised exterior and interior work, including installing new heating and partition walls.
Paul Hoskins, Managing Director at Diamond Special Works, said: “This is a great achievement for the whole project team. The Tailoring Academy is a fantastic new space, which has been expertly designed and delivered, so we’re delighted that it has been recognised as a winning project at leading industry awards.”
Diamond Special Works is part of the Diamond Build Group and specialises in building works for the public sector, delivering projects ranging from £50k – £1m across London.
