OPT Awards in Lockdown

The winners of the OPT Awards in Lockdown have been annouced!

On Tuesday 23 February, for the first time ever, the OPT Awards Evening went virtual. OPT were joined online by nearly 200 guests as eight plaques and fifteen certificates were awarded, together with the brand-new Green Award - presented by special guest Councillor Tom Hayes (Cabinet Member for Green Transport and Zero Carbon Oxford). The recipient of the Green Award, Wadham College's Dorothy Wadham Building, was recognised for its clear agenda for sustainable design and architectural contribution to Iffley Road. 

A special thank you goes to the Awards sponsors: Critchleys Accountants, Carter Jonas and Mathews Comfort Insurance Brokers.
