Phase 2 Bristol Street shortlisted for RICS awards 2019

February 20th 2019

We are proud to announce that Phase 2 Bristol Street has been shortlisted for the 2019 Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors West Midlands awards in both the building conservation and the regeneration categories.  The scheme, project managed by Pennycuick Collins on behalf of client The Gooch Estate, will now go on to compete at this year’s awards ceremony in May.

These World War II bomb-damaged, derelict redundant Edwardian buildings had largely fallen into complete disrepair. The restoration of this final phase was revealed in 2017 and comprises 64 student rooms and 9 studio flats managed by CRM Students, also 2 retail units to supplement the 11 units provided in phase 1.

Speaking about the success, Adrian Roddick, head of building consultancy at Pennycuick Collins, said:

“This was a collaborative project delivered by a predominantly Midlands-based team of experts, project managed by Pennycuick Collins. Phase 2 Bristol Street will leave a long-lasting legacy in an area which is undergoing a major transformation, creating a positive impression to residents, businesses and visitors in this vibrant part of Birmingham.”

Chair of the RICS Awards 2019, West Midlands judging panel, Bryony Martin, Director of Cost Management at AECOM said:

“This years’ shortlisted projects have made real impact on local communities: attracting more visitors and inward investment, providing much needed housing or delivering vital services and infrastructure. The RICS Awards celebrate these successes as well as the talent and collaborative working of the teams behind them – delivering energy efficient and environmentally friendly projects, on time and to budget.”

The RICS Awards 2019, West Midlands, will be held on Wednesday 8 May at Birmingham Botanical Garden.  Call  Adrian Roddick on 0121 456 1700 if you would like to discuss your building refurbishment project or to read the full case study click here: http://www.pennycuick.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/02/Phase-2-Bristol-Street-case-study.pdf
