Our Arthur Rank Hospice project scooped the ‘Project of the Year’ award at the 2017 East of England RICS Awards.
The £10.6million 24 bed Hospice, constructed by Barnes, was a winner in the ‘Community Benefit’ category at the prestigious construction awards. The project was then subsequently named the East of England project of the year ahead of the 7 other category winners.
The Hospice will now go forward to the RICS Awards Grand Final in both the Community Benefit and Project of the Year categories.
“For the project to win the community benefit award and be named Project of the Year ahead of some fantastic projects is a significant achievement and we are absolutely delighted. The whole project team were greatly influenced and inspired by the passion and reputation of the people at the Arthur Rank Hospice, the determination of the fundraising team and the caring nature of the staff and volunteers.”
Lynn Morgan, CEO of the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, commented “This is a wonderful tribute to everyone who worked on the hospice – our fantastic architects LSI, Barnes who built it, Northmore Associates who did a wonderful job of project managing it, Munroes, Faithful and Gould …. A great team that have done Cambridgeshire proud.”
LSI Architects was previously a winner of a national RICS award in 2015, when our Crome Court student residences project at the University of East Anglia won the ‘Design Through Innovation’ category.
