Taylor Wimpey Award

Cass Associates client Taylor Wimpey is celebrating after winning a festive award from Places Matter! for its Orica project.

Taylor Wimpey’s Senior Land Manager Mark Calvert has won a Places Matter! Christmas Crackers award for “recognising the unique setting of Orica, Shevington, Wigan and responding with a place making approach to this distinctive site.”

The Christmas Crackers awards are given annually for outstanding contributions to design and the built environment and celebrate the role and impact of energetic and enthusiastic people who bring fresh, challenging and lively responses to their area of work.

Says Cass Associates’ Graham Trewhella: “We extend our congratulations to Mark and are delighted he has received recognition for his work on the project on behalf of Taylor Wimpey. We are pleased that the importance of the Orica site has been recognised by Places Matter which is an organization that puts great emphasis on developments that make a real difference to their local area.”

Cass has been involved in the planning process at Orica’s former explosives manufacture site for the past ten years.
