Andrew Ruffler, Regional Director said: “Once again it seems that the bar in the North West has been raised, and we congratulate all of the shortlisted practices in what was another competitive selection process. Each of the shortlisted buildings, which span a range of locations, uses and sizes, have elements which elevate them above the ordinary, and it is fantastic to see that a number of North West based practices have been involved in their design and delivery.
For the second year in succession, the region has been unable to shortlist a building which would qualify for the North West’s Small Project Award, and it is a future challenge to rectify this by identifying and celebrating those innovative projects which have been delivered on a tight budget.”
