A refurbished building at Queen's University has been highly commended at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Awards in London. The main site tower and Peter Froggatt Centre were praised in the 'design through innovation' category.
The buildings, built in the 60s, were refurbished in a scheme which judges praised for "successfully linking new and old to create a stimulating teaching and learning environment". Surveyors Hood McGowan Kirk, building contractors Felix O'Hare & Co and Todd Architects worked on the project. The Remembrance Centre at the National Memorial Arboretum in Burton-on-Trent was named UK Project of the Year at the ceremony.
