RICS North East Renaissance Awards 2015

We attended the impressive RICS Awards 2105 North East Renaissance on Friday night and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. Last year we were shortlisted for an impressive 9 awards and came away with a couple of prizes. This year we didn’t enter due to a number of jobs just finishing after the entry dates.  Although we have one in the Yorkshire region for Trinity Academy; so our fingers are firmly crossed for that one.


For next year, we have an exciting list of projects ready for entry across all the categories - so watch this space!

Thanks to the host Phil Spencer and to the RICS for a well organised ceremony as always. It would have been nice to have heard a little more from him, clearly his brief varied from the previous year’s compere. Nonetheless a lovely evening.

Following successfully securing funds,  the  final stage of the transformation of St Oswalds School from an Infant’s School to a Primary School is underway.  A small but complex first floor extension to provide a group space and much needed storage.

An early morning 6am start saw the steel erected and in place before the school’s morning rush.  An exciting start to a short 8 week construction programme.
