Sir Robert McAlpine Limited’s sustainable approach to project delivery and willingness to embrace clients’ core values have been recognised with an award from The Crown Estate.
The Urban Business Award acknowledges excellence in business performance, innovation, environmental care and sustainability.
The company is currently converting the former Regent Palace Hotel in Piccadilly into a mixed-use scheme as part of The Crown Estate’s wider redevelopment of southern Regent Street.
Paul Clark, the estate’s Director of Investment and Asset Management, said: “Sir Robert McAlpine has excelled in understanding The Crown Estate’s core values and especially the need for our new buildings to be of the highest quality for our customers’ business needs.
“The sustainable approach they have adopted on the Quadrant 3 project has been exemplary. This care and attention has assisted The Crown Estate to maintain excellent relationships with existing customers surrounding the complex development site and deliver customers into the building. They have also embraced the wider community by engaging with local schools and charities.”
Roger Bright, chief executive of The Crown Estate, said: “Competition this year has yet again been strong, and the winners should be proud of their achievements. They have demonstrated how to run a successful business in a sustainable way.”
The award is accompanied by a £5,000 prize which will go towards a research initiative or community project.
