Design and Built Enviroment

NECT strongly believes that good design in the built environment is essential to preserving and improving local settings and landscapes, as well as aiding the retention of an historic area’s character. We are actively involved in many projects that promote an understanding of good design principles, demonstrate how design influences its surroundings and publicise efforts being made to provide sustainable principles that meet current and future demands. One such project with which we are involved is the Hadrian Awards, an architectural scheme promoting high quality design in the North East and Cumbria, which is now incorporated within the RIBA Northern Network Awards.
