Liverpool property projects to battle it out for top award

High profile property projects across the Liverpool City Region have been shortlisted for a range of top awards.

The projects are in with a chance of gaining industry recognition at the RICS Awards, North West, which will be held at the Titanic Hotel in May.

Nominated schemes include St Hilda’s CE High School, the £6 million Bellerive Sixth Form building and Norris Green Village (NGV).

Bellerive and St Hilda’s are also both in the running for the ‘Community Benefit’ award whilst NGV has been shortlisted for the ‘Regeneration’ award alongside Marwood Towers on Boundary Street.

Calder House, a £3m development of 11 apartments, is also up for the ‘Regeneration’ accolade with The Prom in New Brighton, whilst the repair of Birkenhead Priory is in the running for the ‘Building Conservation’ award.

All category winners will go on to compete against other regional winners at the national RICS Awards Grand Final in October 2017.

Will Rees, chair of the RICS Awards, North West judging panel and director at Rees Straw Chartered Surveyors, says: “These awards showcase our region’s top built environment projects, along with the exceptional talent and skills of the teams and surveyors behind them.

“Every year I wonder how we’re going to top last year’s shortlist, but I’m never disappointed; many of this year’s nominees are truly unique and pioneering, and have transformed local communities.

“It just goes to show, our region is home to some of the most inspiring built projects.”

The 2017 RICS Awards, North West take place on 19 May at the Titanic Hotel.
