Diamond Special Works is in the running to win two awards at the London LABC Building Excellence Awards.

The London-based contractor has been recognised for its role in creating the Tailoring Academy at Finsbury Park with the project reaching the final in two categories – ‘Best Public Service or Educational Building’ and ‘Best Small Commercial Project.’

Developed through a partnership between Haringey Council and social enterprise, Fashion Enter, the Tailoring Academy aims to bring clothing manufacturing back to London and enable Londoners to hone their tailoring skills.

Diamond Special Works was responsible for transforming the ground floor of an existing warehouse to create the new contemporary space. The refurbishment comprised exterior and interior work, including installing new heating and partition walls.

Paul Hoskins, Managing Director at Diamond Special Works, said: “We’re really proud to see this fantastic new facility be recognised in two categories.

“It’s a shame that because of Covid-19, we won’t be able to celebrate in person with the other finalists but look forward to finding out who the winners are and wish everyone the best of luck.”
