Advocate’s Close Wins Project of the Year at The RICS Scotland Awards 2015

Posted on April 24, 2015 by admin

Advocate’s Close wins “the overall, highly esteemed, Project of the Year which is awarded to the entry judged to have scored the highest against a strict set of criteria“ (as described on the RICS website) as well as the Regeneration Award, which honours exceptional improvements to urban, rural or coastal areas which have contributed to the viability of the area. Our development was also highly commended in both the Commercial and Tourism and Leisure categories at the RICS Scotland Awards 2015 Ceremony at the Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa in Edinburgh.

Chairman of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Scotland judging panel, Colin Smith, said: “Retaining and regenerating all of the existing buildings and restoring historical building forms resulted in a development which fits well within its impressive surroundings, whilst the contemporary additions are sensitive to the historical elements.“
