Event Details

Bridport’s new award-winning recycling facility has been turning heads. This is bold, sensitive but functional architecture. Nestled into a rural setting in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and Site of Nature Conservation Interest (SNCI) – the RIBA jury described the recycling centre ‘a bespoke, considered, ruggedly handsome building that elevates the type’.  
At this exclusive event, project architect, Kris Eley from Mitchell Eley Gould will present an illustrated talk on the design process behind the scheme. He will be joined by client, David Diaz, from Dorset County Council, and landscape architect Sara Metcalfe from Nicholas Pearson Associates who together will explain the need for a new recycling centre, how it works, and the measures taken to limit the facility’s environmental impact through acoustic control, air filters and water cleansing.
To date, the recycling centre has won a number of accolades including, an RIBA South West Award, an Award for Excellence for Innovation in Design of a Waste Management Facility, and a Green Apple Environmental Award for the Built Environment and Architectural Heritage. Dorset Waste Partnership who run the facility have also received an MRW National Recycling Award for Local Authority Innovation
