Workpods win Design, Innovation & Creativity Award RISE 2017

Henry Boot Construction are delighted that the Workpods Fountain Court Project won the Design, Innovation & Creativity award at the Leeds Beckett University’s annual RISE awards 2017. The awards celebrate research, innovation, sustainability and enterprise and the winners were announced by the School of Built Environment and Engineering.

The RISE awards organised by the Leeds Sustainability Institute were established in 2015 as a means of bringing together both industry and academia to highlight new sustainable initiatives, schemes, technologies and products being developed or in use today.

The award was presented by Gaynor Barnes from ITV Calendar at the Marriott Hotel in Leeds on Thursday 14 September 2017.

The awards ceremony also raised a tremendous £634 for Kidney Research Yorkshire thanks to the generous donations from the attendees.

“This entry caught the judges eye thanks to the clear focus on sustainability, flexibility and low impact build to echo market desires within its target market”
