Belfast Waterfront RICS Winner – Commercial

We are delighted that our Waterfront Belfast Extension project won the commercial category in last night’s RICS Award.

The judges’ comments:

‘A complex and demanding scheme with the main client establishing high expectations of this finely built extension to an existing structure abutting Belfast’s riverside. Although built to a cost of £29.5m, in its first six months of operation the facility delivered 15 major conferences, including 16,540 delegate days, generating an economic impact for the city of £9.5m – a figure which is anticipated will rise to £45m by 2020/21 when the venue reaches its full potential. This is indeed a worthy public investment giving benefit to many and well deserving of its BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating.’
