RIBA Award Contenders x3

RIBA and the RSUA have announced there are 21 architectural schemes which have been shortlisted for regional RIBA awards in Northern Ireland 2018 – more than three times the number of projects reaching the same stage in 2017.

TODD Architects are thrilled to say, of those 21, they designed three of the shortlisted schemes; Queens University Belfast Main Site Tower & Peter Froggatt Centre, Omagh Hospital & Primary Care Complex and Craigavon Area Hospital New Paediatrics Ward.

RSUA director Ciarán Fox said: ‘This year’s shortlist takes in a wonderful range of project types and budgets, ranging from a distinctive house for £100,000 in Belfast to a £75 million hospital in Omagh. There are also a number of fine examples of conservation of our historic built environment, which add so much to the character of the region.’

‘Conditions for architects working in Northern Ireland have remained challenging over the last year but there is growing appreciation among clients and policymakers in the region that investing intelligently in design quality delivers tangible benefits to a project and to society.’

 

Congratulations to all teams involved and hopefully the schemes might get through to the next stage!
