Awards success at the RICS last night

We followed up the 8 nominations with 2 awards:

Tunedin!@myplace - highly commended in the tourism and leisure

Treetops - special commendation.

The Practice was recognised for its quality and we are able to quote from the judges on Treetops.

''Occasionally we see a scheme which does not meet those parameters, but is exceptional in its own right. The creative thinking, attention to detail, innovation and beauty of Treetops left the judges full of admiration, impressed and frankly, envious. Treetops is a true 'Grand Design'. ''
