John Lyall Architects have won a prestigious New London Architecture award for our Pudding Mill Lane pumping station for the Olympics!
Neil Young and John Lyall accepted the NLA award earlier this week, at the impressive Guild Hall in The City of London. This award adds to Pudding Mill Lane’s CEEQUAL Outstanding Achievement Award for excellence in sustainability.
In his opening remarks, NLA Chairman Peter Murray said:
‘As the awards jury we have sought to reward not only excellence in design but also to recognise architecture that complements the surrounding city. The New London Awards are about buildings that sit comfortably with their neighbours and adjacent spaces and the strength of the winners is remarkable. It goes to show that London is attracting the very best in the world in terms of design and built form despite the economic downturn, and is a positive sign of what is to come.’
An exhibition of the entries highlighting all of the finalists will open in the NLA galleries in September and run for 12 months.

Pudding Mill Lane Pumping station won a major sustainability award at this weeks CEEQUAL Outstanding Achievement Awards, at the Institution of Civil Engineers in Westminster.
The Olympic Park Primary Foul Sewer and Pumping Station was earlier this year rated ’excellent’ under the CEEQUAL sustainability assessment method.
“CEEQUAL is the assessment scheme for civil engineering and the public realm. It assesses how well project and contract teams have dealt with environmental and social issues in their work.”
This prestigious accolade was one of only eight Outstanding Achievement Awards given out this year. Professor Paul Jowitt, chairman of the judging panel and former President of the ICE, said:
“It was clear from the nominations we considered that some genuinely good work is being done but we also felt strongly that the Awards should be about Outstanding Achievement, not what might be called ‘best in show’. We were therefore looking for not just very good practice but for performance that was genuinely exceptional – what CEEQUAL often describes as ‘pinnacle best practice’.

Having won Project of the Year and Best Regeneration Project in the East of England RICS awards back in May, we were entered into the RICS National Finals, which took place at lunch today in the splendid setting of Londons Guild Hall:
We didn’t win one of the coveted national awards, but it was great to be there, and to have The Mill recognised as one of the best examples of urban regeneration in the UK!
The Mill comprises a family of buildings centred on a courtyard and includes a 23 storey tower (the tallest building in East Anglia.) The scheme is a mixture of 327 residential apartments, a major dance house and theatre, bars, restaurants and shops.
