This year, ABS was delighted for The Birmingham Architectural Association (BAA) to receive the award at the annual WCCA Awards Dinner presented by ABS Chief Executive Robert Ball who says:
“The BAA were invaluable during the pandemic through sponsorship of ABS events and raising awareness. This support meant more people could be reached helping many who were struggling at such a difficult time and ensured ABS could continue to be a foundation of support for members of the architectural community. We look forward to continuing our relationship with BAA well into the future.”
The Awards Dinner was held at Stationers’ Hall in London where BAA Past President Marina Strotz and Vice President Amy Francis-Smith attended to receive the award.
Amy and Marina say: “The award recognition for the BAA’s efforts really does mean so much to us and we are only too happy we could make a difference through those difficult times. With this support, and by encouraging others to raise awareness within the architecture and design community, this fantastic charity is able to be there for both them and their families if they need it. Being able to support and make a positive different to colleagues across the region and country has always been at the heart of the BAA.”
ABS would like to give thanks to Roger Hawkins and his team at Hawkins\Brown for designing the beautiful award plate as well as the WCCA for their continued support of the charity.
It was a lovely and special evening.
