Governors Award 2010 Winners Announced

Gov_Award_LogoThe Cayman Society of Architects, Surveyors & Engineers (CASE) and the Cayman Contractors Association (CCA), in conjunction with is Excellency Governor Duncan Taylor, CBE are proud to announce the recipients of the 2010 Governor’s Award for Design and Construction Excellence in the Cayman Islands. In an unexpected announcement, the Governor chose two projects as the winners – Elmslie Memorial Church and Camana Bay Town Centre. The winners were presented with this award at a ceremony at the Governor’s House on Thursday 2nd December. In attendance was His Excellency, Governor Duncan Taylor CBE and Mrs. Taylor; Honourable Mary Lawrence JP, Honourable Minister Scotland, members of CASE, the CCA and other leading representatives from the construction industry, and members of the media.

 

Elmslie Memorial Church

Camana Bay Town Centre

The Elmslie Memorial Church and Camana Bay Town Centre were selected by His Excellency from 34 submissions and from a shortlist of seven projects which included; Lighthouse Point, the Legislative Assembly Building, West Indian Club, Cotton Tree Cottages and Water’s Edge. The 34 submissions represent a diverse variety of projects from modern building to heritage projects. “I was extremely impressed with the quality of the projects that were submitted and shortlisted,” said Governor Taylor. “It was very difficult to choose just one project as both the Elmslie Church and Camana Bay Town Centre exemplify what the award stands for – Design and Construction Excellence. These two particular projects although built almost 90 years apart – were (and are) ahead of their time with regards to sustainability and design.”

The 2011 Governor's Award programme will be published in June next year, and more details will be
available at that time.

Sponsors of the Governor’s Award include: Kirk Home Centre/Kirk Enterprises, Cox Lumber Co., Cayman
