Closing date looming for RICS NI Awards

Entry to the awards, which are open to all practitioners within the property and construction sectors, is open until January 22nd.

The 2016 awards include eight categories to reflect the full breadth of excellence across the property and construction sectors in Northern Ireland.

In addition to Project of the Year, prizes will be presented in the following categories:

  • Building Conservation
  • Commercial
  • Community Benefit
  • Design & Innovation
  • Infrastructure
  • Regeneration
  • Residential
  • Tourism & Leisure

Winners last year included The Parkside residential development on the Limestone Road, Belfast, which was the overall Project of the Year, Loughmacrory Outdoor Centre, Omagh, Kingspan Stadium, Belfast, and the Clay Lake Water Treatment Works, Keady.

Calling on professionals to enter this year’s scheme, RICS NI Awards Judging Chairman, Alistair Dunn, said: The RICS Awards are a unique opportunity for professionals in the property and construction sectors to have their work highlighted on a local and international platform.

“A wide range of local schemes have made a positive impact in communities and in business, have broadened our tourism offering, enhanced our infrastructure, revived residential areas, and have restored some of our most-loved buildings. I would strongly encourage the professionals behind them to take the opportunity to have their excellent work recognised.”

Every Northern Ireland category winner will go forward to the RICS Awards Grand Final in London, where they will compete with other regional winners from across the UK.

The deadline for entry to the awards was due to be January 15th, but it has been extended by a week until January 22nd.
