From Yorkshire Business Daily.
York’s annual scheme to recognise the very best of the city’s architecture and design in both new build and conservation projects has received a major boost thanks to specialist insurer Hiscox who have renewed their position as the main sponsor of the York Design Awards until 2019.
The company, whose landmark underwriting and customer experience centre at Peasholme Green opened in the city in 2015, will provide vital financial and ‘hands on’ operational support to ensure the organisers can continue to deliver the awards programme and encourage good design by architects, developers and building owners.
The 2017 York Design Awards will launch on Monday 6 February, for online applications until Friday 31 March.
In signing up as the main sponsor for the next three years Hiscox is demonstrating how much it values high quality buildings and public spaces for the city’s residents and visitors to enjoy. Its own office development won a 2016 York Design Award in the ‘Commercial Large’ category, reflecting the eye-catching design of the insurer’s largest office outside London.
