We’re always looking for opportunities to talk to people about how intelligent integration of technology can have a huge impact on new and existing buildings, so when the Department for International Trade invited us to join the UK Government Pavilion at this year’s MIPIM, we were delighted to accept.
This week, we were delighted to receive a certificate acknowledging the role Vanti played in the RICS West Midlands Project of the Year. Birmingham City University’s Royal Birmingham Conservatoire was awarded the honour at the West Midlands RICS Awards back in May, with this accolade being presented to the scheme which judges deem as demonstrating “overall outstanding best practice and an exemplary commitment to adding value to its local area”.
We’re looking for an incredible, talented Construction Project Manager to help us deliver incredible experiences within the built environment.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock or swore off email several months ago, it’s likely that you’ll have received more than a couple of emails around data and privacy recently. As you may have gathered, this is due to GDPR – an EU-wide change in regulation that enters into force on 25th May in order to give citizens more control over their personal data in the digital age.
Monday night saw an excited contingent from Team Vanti take their seats at the InAVation Awards at Amsterdam’s Gashouder to find out if we were to return to Birmingham in a blaze of glory or empty handed. We knew we were up against some incredibly stiff competition in the Education Facility category, with a total of 10 finalists from around the world all hoping to take home the coveted award.
The project category finalists for the 2018 InAVation Awards were announced today, and we’re very pleased to announce that Vanti have been shortlisted in the Education Facility category for our work on Birmingham City University’s Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.
September 2017 saw the launch of BCU’s new Birmingham Conservatoire, a state-of-the-art project that was several years in the making and took two years to construct. The world-class Conservatoire, which was granted a Royal status just two weeks after it opened, cost £57 million and features five public performance spaces, including the 500-seat concert hall, 150-seat recital hall, and a 100-seat organ studio. The building also boasts the UK’s first permanent conservatoire-based jazz space, which seats 80, and a flexible and versatile black-box studio called The Lab where students can experiment and innovate.
The last week of November saw the return of Silicon Canal’s annual Tech Awards, which took place this year at The Birmingham Repertory Theatre. Vanti were delighted to be nominated, then shortlisted, for the Small Tech Company of the Year award, and faced some stiff competition from GuyKat Solutions and Wealth Wizards. However, the panel of expert judges decided that Vanti were deserving of the title, and we graciously accepted our latest award!
