The RICS Northern Ireland awards at the La Mon Hotel and Country Club, May 2017

It was dubbed the 'sore on the shore', but the Waterfront Hall's controversial £30m extension has won an award.

Despite being heavily criticised, the add-on scooped a major honour at a construction industry awards event in Belfast last night, landing the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors' (RICS) commercial project title.

The judging panel commended the scheme, saying it was set for big things.

"Although built to a cost of £29.5m, in its first six months of operation the facility delivered 15 major conferences, including 16,540 delegate days, generating an economic impact for the city of £9.5m - a figure which is anticipated will rise to £45m by 2020/21 when the venue reaches its full potential," it said.

Girdwood Community Hub in north Belfast also attracted praise and was named the Northern Ireland project of the year. Judges said of the scheme, which was built in a former army base: "When Belfast City Council stepped in with the ambitious cross-community hub concept, it seemed a noble but impossible idea. Yet in the two years since opening it is in full use by all communities, it has opened previously blockaded streets and peace walls and created a positive ripple effect."

Student accommodation project John Bell House won the award for building conservation, while the community benefit award went to The Junction in Dungannon.

Queen's University's main site tower and Peter Froggatt Centre won the award for design through innovation, while Bishop's Gate Hotel in Londonderry took the award for tourism and leisure.
