Six Welsh property schemes will go head-to-head against almost 100 built initiatives from across the UK next month, for a chance to gain honours at the 2017 RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) Awards Grand Final.
The category winners from this year’s annual RICS Awards, Wales – which were held in May – were recognised as the region’s most inspiring and community beneficial built projects, and are now hoping to put Wales on the map by being recognised UK-wide.
- Building Conservation – Cornerstones, Charles Street, Cardiff
- Commercial – One Central Square, Cardiff
- Community Benefit – HMP Berwyn, Wrexham
- Design through Innovation – CUBRIC (Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre), Cardiff
- Regeneration – Urban Village, High Street, Swansea
- Tourism & Leisure – Winner – Harlech Castle Visitor Centre, Apartments & Footbridge, Gwynedd
Each UK region hosts an annual RICS Awards and the category winners from each of the 12 regional heats will now be pitted against their national peers in the hope of winning the overall UK award in their respective category.
Each regional ‘Project of the Year’ winner will also be in the running for the highest national accolade; the ‘2017 RICS UK Project of the Year’ award. CUBRIC (Cardiff University Brain Research Imaging Centre) won the prestigious title at this year’s RICS Awards, Yorkshire & Humber.
The 2017 RICS Awards Grand Final will take place on 2 November at the InterContinental London, Park Lane Hotel (12pm-4pm), and will be hosted by BBC Breakfast News and Sport Anchor, Dan Walker.
