RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) has announced some of the East of England’s most loved built environment projects, with the publication of the RICS Awards 2019, East of England shortlist.
Twenty-three of the region’s most innovative and community beneficial property projects have captured the hearts of RICS judges and will now go on to compete in seven categories at this year’s awards ceremony in May.
The seven categories for 2019 are; Building Conservation, Commercial, Community Benefit, Design through Innovation, Regeneration, Residential and Tourism & Leisure.
All category winners go forth for the acclaimed regional Project of the Year title, awarded to the scheme that demonstrates outstanding best practice and an exemplary commitment to adding value to its local area.
Last year saw the North West Cambridge Development win the esteemed title for admirably tackling the affordable housing challenges in the city whilst creating a mixed community, incorporating quality and sustainable homes for University key-workers and the wider community.

Chair of the RICS Awards 2019, East of England’s judging panel, Jonathan Nelson Partner at Richard Utting Associates said: “What’s great about the RICS Awards is that they celebrate and recognise the community impact that these shortlisted property projects are having on their local communities, as well as the talent and collaboration of the teams behind them.
“Some of these shortlisted projects have helped to attract more visitors and inward investment, whilst others have provided much needed housing or vital services and infrastructure to their communities. The teams behind them should be extremely proud as many were delivered on time and within budget, and with sustainability at the heart, to ensure they are as energy efficient and environmentally friendly as possible.”
All regional winners go on to compete against other regional winners at the national RICS Awards Grand Final in November 2019, for the chance to be crowned the overall UK winner in their respective category.
