Riba Rics Bco Awards Success Beacon Of Light Menai Science Park Janet Nash House Lh

Three of our recently completed buildings, Beacon of Light, Janet Nash House and Menai Science Park, have been collectively recognised for their design excellence by regional juries for the Royal Insitute of British Architects (RIBA), Royal Society of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the British Council of Offices (BCO).

All three schemes received regional awards from the RIBA, with Janet Nash House being named ‘Building of the Year’ in the North East region. The RIBA Awards are widely recognised as the UK’s most sought after architectural prize, and this is the first time we have had three projects honoured in the same year.

In addition, Beacon of light picked up the title, ‘Project of the Year’ from the RICS North East judges, as well as the institutes’ ‘Community Benefit’ award. The BCO Northern Awards judges then presented Janet Nash House with the ‘Innovation’ award, before naming it the ‘Best Corporate Workplace’ in the region.
