Thomson Snell & Passmore today announces its sponsorship of the ‘Best Commercial, Industrial or Retail Building’ category at the Kent Design and Development Awards, which have just been officially launched and opened for this year’s entries.
The Kent Design and Development Awards are held every two years to reward and celebrate design excellence in Kent. There are five main categories each demonstrating how design and development industry professionals use their skills to develop and enhance Kent's environment.
Thomson Snell & Passmore is sponsoring the ‘Best Commercial, Industrial or Retail Building’ category where entrants must demonstrate an exciting and design-led approach to achieve quality and economic growth to a locality. Schemes can range from industrial and retail parks, through to individual buildings and shop front refurbishment and can include any high quality retail, commercial or industrial schemes.
The Commercial Property & Development practice at Thomson Snell & Passmore is recognised as a leading team in the South East for both the private and public sectors, advising on all areas of commercial property and development. The team recently acted for Thanet District Council in the Port of Ramsgate's maintenance facility and Gravesham Borough Council, Sevenoaks District Council and Brake Bros all feature on the practice's client roster.
Gilbert Green, Partner and head of the Commercial Property & Development team at Thomson Snell & Passmore, said:
“I am delighted we are sponsoring this category at the Kent Design and Development Awards 2012. In the current economic climate it becomes ever more important to ensure that the design quality agenda across Kent is both nurtured and recognised.
“Innovative and impressive design – incorporating green measures – will create appealing, sustainable developments that attract interest from occupiers and investors. Design and construction of this type creates long term value for Kent by attracting new business and investment. This is an important issue and I look forward to attending the ceremony in November and congratulating the winner. ”
