Walton Court shortlisted for the RICS Awards 2017
February 20, 2017
We are delighted to announce that our Walton Court Centre regeneration project has been shortlisted for the RICS 2017 awards.
The RICS Awards recognise the inspirational regional initiatives and development in land, property, construction and the environment.
The regeneration of Walton Court has addressed the Centre’s issues of anti-social behaviour, connectivity, health and wellbeing, and rebranded it as a desirable place to live and be. Working within a collaborative process, the homes were super-insulated, the retail units were relocated, the community facilities were expanded and the courtyard was secured to create a clear hierarchy of public and private space which is both safe and secure whilst providing a sense of neighbourhood and interaction with the wider community.
The RICS Awards Regeneration category showcases exceptional improvements to urban, rural or coastal areas. Reviewing the project entries, the Judges will be looking for a scheme that has conserved or improved the built or natural environment in a way that has contributed to the viability of the area.
The category winners and Project of the Year winner will be announced at the Awards Ceremony and Dinner on 17th May at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton. Kate Bellingham – TV Presenter, Engineer and Champion for Girls in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) will be hosting the evening.
