Conservatoire claims further awards

Topic Awards

Date 09 Nov 2018

The Royal Birmingham Conservatoire was one of the big winners at the 2018 RICS Awards last week, picking up a national award in the Design through Innovation category.

The project had previously been named as Project of the Year for RICS in the West Midlands, before its further success at the national awards, where it was praised by the judges as a ‘world class facility with national and international appeal which will attract further investment to the city’.

The £57m scheme, which is part of Birmingham City University, is the first building of its type to be built in the UK for 30 years. The new facilities include five new public performance spaces, including a 500-seat concert hall, a 150-seat recital hall and a 100-seat organ studio.

The project was also named as Construction Project of the Year at last week’s West Midlands Insider Property Awards.

Mick Laws, Managing Director for Building Midlands and South, commented: “We are fast running out of ways to acknowledge what a fantastic project this has been! The RICS award is another richly-deserved accolade for what has been one of the most outstanding buildings delivered by Galliford Try in recent years. I can only congratulate the team once again for their success.”
