South Belfast buildings in line for top awards
Four south Belfast building projects have been shortlisted in the RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) Northern Ireland Awards.
They include: the redevelopment of a derelict site to create the Chinese Community and Resource Centre; the refurbishment of the Ulster Museum; the development of Queen’s University’s new library and the restoration of St Malachy’s Church.
The projects will compete in several categories and winners go through to the overall RICS Awards to compete both nationally and internationally.
RICS Northern Ireland Director Ben Collins commended the quality of the entries.
“We can see in the entries the enormous contribution that chartered surveyors make to enhancing Northern Ireland’s infrastructure, protecting our cultural heritage and minimising the environmental impact of our buildings,” he said.
The regional awards ceremony takes place in May at The Great Hall in Queen’s University.
Successful regional winners will then be invited to the grand final ceremony in London in October.
