01 Mar Three Projects Shortlisted for RICS Awards SW 2017
WWA are delighted to announce that three of our client’s projects have been shortlisted for the RICS Awards South West 2017. The RICS Awards showcase the most inspirational regional initiatives and developments in land, property, construction and the environment.
The three schemes reflect the variety of work being undertaken across Devon and Cornwall by WWA’s teams in Truro, Exeter and Plymouth.
Our nominated projects include:
The Fox Atrium at Falmouth University gathers a collection of buildings into one holistic form with shared flexible work/socialising spaces, a cafe and internal courtyard all under one roof. Innovative and sympathetic design has ensured the re-purposing of the existing buildings whilst creating a significant and beautiful piece of architecture. A stunning new space has evolved, whilst maintaining a fully functioning university campus, which is truly in keeping with the creative ethos of the University.
Set within the grounds of the Grade I listed, 16th century Boringdon Hall, the Gaia Spa has created over 50 new jobs and secured a bright future for the historic hotel. Expertly designed throughout, this glorious building has been merged into the hillside, discretely spanning 3 floors. The contemporary design of the pools, treatment rooms and social areas embraces the beauty of the surrounding countryside and utilises nature to create shoulder dropping spaces for relaxation and rejuvenation.
Seaton Jurassic is an exciting new visitor attraction and a catalyst for local regeneration. Owned by East Devon District Council and operated by Devon Wildlife Trust, the centre is built on an underused car park in Seaton, in an area undergoing much needed transformation. Through expert design and interactive technology, the centre guides its visitors through life over the past 250 million years and its evolution on the Jurassic Coast, England’s first Natural World Heritage Site.
The winners will be announced at the RICS regional award ceremonies on the 11th May in Bristol.
