Scotland’s most inspirational built projects revealed at RICS Awards
The winners of the RICS Awards 2022 in Scotland have been revealed and some of the most impressive recent building projects from the local area are on the list.
Canonmills Garden in Edinburgh has won the residential project award, while Provost Skene’s House in Aberdeen won the heritage award and Campus Central at the University of Stirling won best commercial development.
The community benefit award went to Merkinch Primary School and Family Centre, while the award for public sector project was awarded to The Great Tapestry of Scotland Gallery in Galashiels.
The RICS Awards showcase the most inspirational initiatives and developments in land, real estate, construction and infrastructure. They recognise outstanding achievement, teamwork and companies.
The regional winners have now been shortlisted in the national awards, taking place in October, and will compete at the national RICS Awards Grand Final.
Colin Smith MRICS, chair of the judging panel, said: “These winning projects are a true testament to the hard work of property professionals in Scotland. The pandemic has led to the industry facing much uncertainty and challenging conditions, but we were delighted, and very proud, to see such innovative building projects appearing across our cities and towns.
“The teams behind them have worked tirelessly and with incredible vision to create projects which provide tremendous benefit across a diverse range of areas. Through collaborating with other professionals, local surveyors have shown that they have the talent to deliver exemplary projects.”
“The RICS recognises the skills and dedication that the teams behind these projects had in ensuring their successful delivery, and making a positive impact across Scotland.”
