Tony Grist re-appointed as Civic Trust Architect Assessor
Tony Grist, Head of Architecture at HASSELL, has been re-appointed as a Civic Trust Architect Assessor for Westminster, London in 2013.
Launched in 1959, the Civic Trust Awards is one of the oldest built environment award schemes in Europe. From cafes and churches through to housing and hospitals, the Civic Trust Awards have acknowledged over 6,500 projects that have made a positive cultural, social or economic contribution to the local community.
"I'm pleased to be re-appointed as an assessor for the Civic Trust Awards," said Tony. "They are unique and recognise some of the best projects in the built environment, from architecture to planning, townscape to infrastructure. But more than this, they recognise the public realm in its wider context and our continuing belief that development should be for the benefit of people," he said.
Results and outcomes will be announced in January 2013 with the winners revealed at the Civic Trust Awards Ceremony on 9 March 2013 in Cardiff.
