Future 40 – Celebrating the next forty years of Hilson Moran

In 2017 Hilson Moran celebrated its fortieth anniversary. In recognition of this achievement the practice produced a year of events and initiatives which looked forward to our next 40 years in design and construction, and consider how the industry will look in 40 years’ time. 

Future Forty celebrated innovation and communication, asking questions about the state of design and exploring modern methods of construction, new technologies and design tools.

Our Emerging Technologies Hackathon Series delved into the possibilities offered to our industry by new innovations: How will wearables be used to make our buildings more efficient and improve the wellbeing of their occupiers? How will automotive vehicles impact upon the built environment?

In our Qatar and UAE offices, we will be looking at how advances in engineering are allowing us to design comfortable environments in this region, inside and out, while in Cambridge a panel discussion explored the pros and cons of autonomous vehicles.

Looking to develop our future engineers, a design competition asked engineering students to imagine how design and construction will change over the next 40 years, with the winning entrant awarded a work placement on Hilson Moran’s Research and Development Team.

Cementing Hilson Moran’s commitment to the North over the next 40 years and beyond, our Manchester office relocated in 2017. Situated in the newly refurbished Neo Building, in Manchester’s City Centre, we are delighted that our new home is in a building of our own design, with a fit-out designed to meet WELL standards.
