RICS Award Winners were announced through a remote awards ceremony, and we are very happy to announce that the project we designed and entered, Build It’s Self Build Education House, has been awarded the accolade for best Residential project in the South East. This means we are now through to the National RICS Award Winners ceremony in September. Here we will be competing against several other brilliant projects from around the UK. It was a strange experience to be watching the award ceremony remotely with a cup of tea, rather than with the whole team round a table, maybe with a glass of bubbly or two. But, times are strange for everyone at the moment, and it was wonderful to have become RICS Award Winners for the second time in lapd Architect’s history (see our other RICS award winning project here).
We’d like to say a massive thank you to the team at Build It who project managed and drove the whole project. It was an absolute joy to bring their vision to life (find out more by reading Opinder’s Education house design blog or by listening to Opinder (lapd) and Calum’s (Build It) appearance on the House Planning Help Self Build podcast). We’d also like to thank the team at Graven Hill and the builders for the project Drewett & Hunt. All our fingers are crossed for a national award in a few months time!
