Projects shortlisted for RICS Awards
PCA Consulting Engineers is delighted to see projects the firm has worked on being shortlisted for the RICS Awards 2019, South West.
RICS Awards recognise excellence in the built environment and showcase the successes of RICS professionals and their impact on local communities. The South West ceremony will be held at the Bristol Marriott Hotel City Centre on May 22.
The Farmers Arms in Woolsery, Bideford, has been shortlisted for both the Building Conservation and Tourism & Leisure categories, while Furzy Close in Polzeath, Cornwall, has been selected for the Residential shortlist.
PCA worked with Jonathan Rhind Architects on The Farmers Arms to rescue a dilapidated village pub bought by tech entrepreneur and co-founder of Bebo Michael Birch.
Meanwhile, Furzy Close is a contemporary, low energy holiday home, designed by Bodmin-based architects ARCO2.
PCA director Andrew Horton said: “It’s great to see these two very different projects get the recognition they deserve. While one is about conserving an older building to breathe life into the heart of a village, the other is about modernity and eco-living. We look forward to seeing how they do and congratulate the architects and contractors we worked with on both these very successful projects.”
