Recognising quality in all types of building projects, the prestigious accolades are the largest business-to-business awards in the building control sector.

Brian Nunn, Project Director, said: “It has been a pleasure to be involved with The Monument project, a great project with a great team. Being awarded this prestigious award is a result of dedication and hard work from the whole team.”

Completed two weeks ahead of schedule in May 2016, The Monument Building is a 94,000sqft (8,733sqm) nine-storey office-led development and is Skanska’s first London development. Designed by architect Ken Shuttleworth’s Make, it features four terraces, a large reception area, state-of-the-art cycle storage and shower facilities. The building has been fitted with a ‘curtain’ of twisted, anodised aluminium fins on the south façade.

Following the win, The Monument Building has automatically qualified as a finalist for the LABC Grand Finals 2017, which take place on Friday 10 November.
