Ancon Prize for Technical Design Excellence 2005

The 2005 Ancon Prize for Technical Design Excellence has been awarded to five exceptional students of BSc Architectural Technology at their graduation from Sheffield Hallam University.

Thomas Webb, Geoffrey Cook, Douglas Lloyd, Max Everett and Matthew Rowe earned the prize from Sheffield-based Ancon for their first class final year projects. The prize was presented by Ancon's Operations Director, Peter McDermott.

Each of the winning students designed a large, retail-led mixed use development focussing on the themes of sustainability and energy conservation.

The five graduates are now either looking to continue their studies or gain full time employment. Thomas Webb said

"The opportunity to improve people's everyday lives is what interests me about the construction industry. I hope to join a company that specialises in environmental design."

Fellow student, Geoffrey Cook is considering a Masters Degree in Urban Planning.

Course leader, Norman Wienand, said

"Sheffield Hallam University is very pleased that Ancon, a local business and a well known name in the industry, has again chosen to recognise the achievements of our students by sponsoring an award for Technical Design Excellence."
