"This PFI project has given Brighton a long-awaited facility which has been designed and delivered with great flair."
"The building nestles into its surroundings and adds to a sense of place. It has already proved its popularity with Londoners and tourists alike."
"The Brent Birth Centre is a well-delivered, value for money building which is finely crafted and homely. The treatment of natural light is innovative, breaking up what could have been boring, long corridors. Beautifully detailed."
"We liked the optimism that was represented by this high-quality social, as well as physical regeneration project."
"This project is a good example of essential flood alleviation, produced in a discreet and well-designed manner."
"This is a first-class example of civil engineering under pressure. One of its particular successes was how it removed one of the country's oldest railway bridges and replaced it without causing a major disruption to rail services."
"This scheme has already won a CABE/DfES award for the new and imaginative thinking it has brought to the table in designing facilities in which children can learn and think. Sensitive and subtle, it uses robust materials, but the design makes them appear airy and welcoming."
"An impressive addition to the city academy programme, this has given the local community in Hackney a visible example of what design quality can mean for education."
"This is a good example of a project which is likely to become increasingly evident, given rising water tables and the effects of global warming."
"This project is a well-delivered new road link which will help improve communications and regeneration in the Tees Valley."
"This striking series of auditoria is the latest project in the revitalisation of Gateshead Riverside, providing an impressive architectural complement to the Millennium Bridge."
"This is the first new government department headquarters building completed in recent years. It replaced the little-loved three towers previously on the site and has combined artwork, architecture and landscaping to good effect."
"This project combined innovation and effective managment, both to save money and provide a replacement viaduct which will benefit road users and the community alike."
"This is the second phase of the project which began with the regeneration of the Treasury. It upgrades and improves the major Edwardian building by using cushioned roofs to create new light spaces and providing new facilities for HM Revenue and Customs in a single corporate headquarters."
"With a great use of local materials and representing a very soft addition to the environment, this scheme shows that roads can also be specific to their geography."
