The work it carried out on two newly-built primary schools in Haverhill has put a design and property consultants in with a shout of winning both a regional and national award.
Ipswich-based Concertus has been shortlisted in the national RICS Awards award for the work it carried out on the new Clements Primary School in Haverhill.
Meanwhile, Concertus’ contributions to the building of Westfield Primary Academy, in Chalkstone Way, which also opened in 2012, has earned it a place in the final of the Public Sector Building Project of the Year category at the 2013 Suffolk Property Awards.
The RICS Awards showcase the most inspirational regional initiatives and developments in land, property, construction and the environment.
Concertus won the Community Benefit category at the RICS East of England awards in May for its work at the school in Greenfields Way, which opened in 2012.
It now goes forward to be considered for the overall national award, where it will be up against 11 other UK regions.
The category recognises outstanding achievement in providing a facility which directly benefits the local community and Concertus won the East of England regional award against tough competition from four other short listed projects.
A key aspect of the awards is that the judges take into consideration the effect that the project has had on the local community and environment.
They also look at the impact and benefits the buildings have on the people that use them.
Andrew Rowe, managing director for Concertus said: “Being a regional winner and now a short listed candidate for national recognition is particularly special for the Concertus team.
“It is the first recognition received from our industry peers in our new guise, after divesting from Suffolk County Council in April.”
The results will be announced at the Grand Final event taking place at The Savoy Hotel in London on October 18.
