We’re very pleased to announce that 2 of our projects have been shortlisted in this years RIBA 2017 West Midlands awards. A fantastic achievement given the very strong field of 12 shortlisted projects in the region this year. Our shortlisted projects this year are the New Library at the University of Birmingham and the Keyes Building at the King’s School Worcester.
The awards recognise the best architecture in the UK and around the world, no matter the form, size or budget. Successful projects may reflect changes and innovations in architecture, but at their core they display a commitment to designing and developing buildings and spaces for the improvement and enhancement of people’s lives.
Natalia Maximova, Chair of the Judging Panel commented:
“This shortlist includes a healthy range of projects from a chapel restoration to a new car manufacturing centre, which demonstrates a high design standard across the sectors. There are some unusual takes on conservation, as well as unique building types. All are so different and all have merits worthy of a jury’s visit. The jury are now keen to meet the project teams and their clients both well-known and newly-established names. Congratulations to them all for ensuring that the region’s architectural aspirations remain so strong.”
Winners will be announced at the annual awards ceremony, held this year on the 15th May.
