By Anita Jaynes on 20 February, 2015

The region’s most impressive new and regenerated projects will go head-to-head in the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) South West Awards as the shortlist for 2015 is announced.

Swindon Designer Outlet Centre, Latchways Warehouse, Distribution and Production Facility in Devizes and Bristol Airport make up some of the projects competing across the region. (Full shortlist below)

Eight category winners and a Project of the Year will be selected from the 42 shortlisted entries to the awards.  The winners from the Building Conservation, Community Benefit, Infrastructure, Design through Innovation and the Regeneration categories will then be invited to represent The South West and compete against projects from across the rest of the UK, at the overall RICS Awards in London.

The 2014 South West Project of the Year title went to Porthmeor Artists’ Studios and Fisherman’s Cellars.

Lynn Robinson, Regional Director RICS South, said: “The quality of entries received this year is truly outstanding and clearly demonstrates the fantastic work being carried out by property professionals. There is a wealth and variety of inspirational new projects and regenerated developments, I am sure it will be a challenging judging process.”

Judging for the awards will take place during spring 2015 with the RICS South West Awards ceremony being held at the spectacular Bristol Marriott Hotel on Thursday 21 May. Hosting the South West Awards is BBC presenter Alex Lovell. The RICS Awards UK national ceremony will take place in London in October 2015.

The RICS South West Awards 2015 showcase the most inspirational regional initiatives and developments in land, property, construction and the environment, celebrating the achievements of professionals working in both the built and natural environment.
