The Royal Institute of British Architects has given Hudson Architects from Norwich a regional award for their Salvation Army building design in Chelmsford. The zinc-roofed building was constructed using an eco-friendly cross-laminated timber panel system. The CLP system was pioneered by Austrian manufacturers KLH and provides the advantages of reinforced concrete construction without the environmental downside.

The Salvation Army building design stirred controversy when it was constructed two years ago, but since then, it has won several awards and found favor with local residents.
