Better than ever: AUDE Awards shortlist announced

15 March 2024      Martin Higgs, Communications Officer

We are immensely proud today to be able to share the names of the shortlisted estates teams, projects and individuals in this year’s AUDE Awards, along with the nominated organisations in our AUDE Supplier of the Year Award. In every case there is immense hard work, drive and determination that underpins the shortlisting and everyone involved has good cause to feel very proud.

The shortlisted member universities this year are:

Auckland, Durham, East Anglia, Edge Hill, Glasgow, Institute of Cancer Research, King’s College London, Lancaster, Manchester, and Nottingham Trent.

Jane Harrison-White, AUDE’s Executive Director, explained that the AUDE Awards are a crucial way not only to celebrate good work but also to spread good ideas and share good practice in estates and facilities teams at UK universities and beyond.

‘Every year we are knocked out by the standard and every year we are inspired by the amazing work that goes on, sometimes unheralded, behind the scenes of our universities. We’ve had a great standard of entries once more, better than ever, and we know our members enjoy the chance to be recognised by their peer group and to get the kudos their work genuinely deserves. Projects cover every aspect of the estates remit from energy and sustainability to capital project management, ‘soft FM’ and more, so the awards are really representative of all of the great work estates teams do in HE.’

The AUDE Awards will be presented at the AUDE 2024 Conference at Northumbria University on 17 April.

We are grateful to all of those teams entering this year including those organisations shortlisted for the AUDE Supplier of the Year Award. Which organisation will take the prize and follow Hassell Studio, winners in the first year of the prize in 2023? The competing organisations are Buro Happold, Carbon Numbers Limited, Curtins, Drees and Sommer (AA Projects), Maris Interiors, Mills & Reeve, Procure Partnerships Framework, Pulse Consult, Siemens and Vital Energi. It is a pleasure for AUDE to be able to shine a spotlight on the amazing companies we all work with, and their amazing innovative projects, in this way.

Speaking on behalf of AUDE Awards supporters Trilogy, May Molteno, who joined other representatives on the judging panel, ‘Trilogy is so proud to be supporting the AUDE Awards this year. The standard of entries was incredibly impressive – showcasing the sector’s commitment to mentoring and training staff; equality and diversity; and pushing to reach net zero targets. What I love about these Awards is AUDE’s commitment to sharing learning across the sector – both tried and tested approaches done exceptionally well – and standout areas of innovation to be replicated.’
