Hussain Architectural Design Winners in the 2017 Sustainability Awards.

Hussain Architectural Design Ltd a female led multi award winning Architectural Practice and Planning Consultancy based in Burnley, Blackburn, Manchester and London has won the Most Innovative Woman in Sustainable Design at the Build Magazine 2017 Sustainability awards Saira Hussain founded Hussain Architectural Design in a small office in Burnley in 2011 after working some years in practice and completing her degree at Huddersfield University, she was later joined by Leeds Met University educated Nixie Edwards.

Having been nominated for over 25 awards in the last few years, including The Duke of Gloucester Awards, Red Rose Awards, English Asian Business Awards and HAD has recently won the Most influential woman in UK Architecture award.

Saira Hussain and Nixie Edwards would like to highlight the importance of women in the construction industry as role models for the next generation and are currently attending fresher’s fayres, schools, colleges and University’s and also participating in a short film about Women in Construction.

Saira Hussain: ‘’ Too often we still see women feeling ‘shut out’ of certain careers or routes into work, And we know that this sense of some areas being out of bounds includes the construction industry, with it seen as “something for the boys”, despite the incredible opportunities it can offer.. Stereotypes still persist. For many, a job in construction too often still conjures up an image of a man in a high-vis jacket on a building site. Women make up half our population and so it is right that we see them able to fulfil their potential and thrive in careers across our economy, including construction. To do this we need more to educate young people and recognition from the existing females in the construction/ architecture and engineering industries and we’d like to thank the 2017 Sustainability awards for doing just that.’’
