Singapore – Atkins – a member of the SNC-Lavalin Group – has seen two of its architectural projects recognised at the 2020-2021 Asia Pacific Property Awards. The Changsha Northstar International Convention and Exhibition Centre won an award in the Public Service Architecture in China category, while the Hari hotel in Hong Kong won an award in the New Hotel Construction and Design category.
Bertil de Kleynen, Managing Director for Southeast Asia at Atkins, said: “I’m thrilled to see that more of our design projects are recognised at the prestigious awards. It’s a great recognition of our passionate architecture team and their effort to design award-winning projects that not only enhance value for our clients’ investments, but also raise their profiles at the national and international levels.”
The Changsha Northstar International Convention and Exhibition Centre is a new landmark for the city, including a 400 metre supertall tower. It integrates residential, cultural, retail and commercial space and creates a central public space for activities. The luxury Hari hotel, which is due to open in 2020, builds on the success of Harilela family’s signature hotel in London.
