Thirty four impressive local schemes, representing best practice by professionals working in the built environment and providing benefit to communities, battled it out for top honours at the 2018 RICS Awards, Northern Ireland, which took place at the La Mon Hotel & Spa, Belfast on Friday 25 May 2018. There were a total of eight shortlisted categories – Building Conservation, Commercial, Community Benefit, Design through Innovation, Infrastructure, Regeneration, Residential and Tourism & Leisure. The Awards ceremony
We are very proud to share that two of our TODD Architects designed healthcare schemes won RICS NI Awards this year; Omagh Hospital & Primary Care Complex in the Design Through Innovation category and Enniskillen NI Ambulance Station in the Infrastructure category. Congratulations to all involved on both design teams.
Both winning projects were highly praised by the awarding judges on their innovative design approaches;
Design through Innovation – Omagh Hospital and Primary Care Complex. Judges praised the “revolutionary improvements in the efficient and holistic delivery of community carer services at a single location” and the “feel good factor” it had created for the local community.
Infrastructure – Northern Ireland Ambulance Service Station, Enniskillen. Judges of the awards said the new station was “ground breaking, innovative and representative of how future stations will be”.
“The eight exciting winning schemes are all having an extremely positive impact on their local communities. The teams behind them have worked tirelessly and with incredible vision to create projects which provide tremendous benefit across areas as diverse and important as healthcare, education, housing, the workplace and tourism. Through collaborating with other professionals, local surveyors have shown that they have the talent to deliver exemplary and in many cases world-class built projects.”
