The biggest annual celebration of the property industry in Northern Ireland saw over 500 people gather yesterday for the 2016 Belfast Telegraph Property Awards in association with propertynews.com

The Ramada Hotel at Shaw's Bridge played host to the glittering event which recognised the past year's big successes and stars of the industry.

Key companies from every aspect of the profession came together for an afternoon of fine dining and celebration as awards were presented in a number of categories.

Hosted by Pamela Ballantine, guests relaxed over lunch before the room reverberated with laughter as Blame Game comedian Colin Murphy took to the stage.

The presentation of awards followed, with the high quality of entries posing a huge challenge for our esteemed judging panel chaired by Professor Alastair Adair, Ulster University's deputy vice chancellor and Professor of Property Investment.

Also tasked with choosing our winners, finalists and highly commended were Arlene Elliott of the NI Law Society; First Trust Bank's Derek Wilson, who is also the chair of the Council of Mortgage Lenders; Nicola McCrudden of the Chartered Institute of Housing; Daryl McIntosh of the National Association of Estate Agents; David Little of the National House Building Council; Ben Collins, regional director for the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors, and Joan McCoy of White Ink Architects, who is also vice president of the Royal Society of Ulster Architects.

Professor Adair commented: "The judges were very gratified to receive such a high quality of nominations and we noticed a marked uplift from the previous year in relation to design - the young architects and agents - quality of residential and commercial developments and professional services in all of the categories.

"Given the high quality, it was difficult for the judges to separate the winners from those who were highly commended.

"What also was very clear in these entries was the significant impact that the digital information and knowledge economy is now having on the property sector and enhancing services to clients." The following were among the awards presented:

Commercial Estate Agency of the Year award, sponsored by A & L Goodbody, was won by CBRE, with Lambert Smith Hampton and Lisney both highly commended.

The award for Commercial Development of the Year, sponsored by Carson McDowell, was presented to Lacuna Developments for its exciting restoration of the landmark listed building, the former Belfast Metropolitan College at College Square East, Belfast, now called John Bell House.

The company singled out for the Property Deal of the Year Award, sponsored by Wilson Nesbitt, was Lambert Smith Hampton, with The Lotus Group taking a highly commended.
