Two primary schools in Haverhill have been shortlisted to win a national and county award, respectively, for the company behind their design and construction.
Ipswich-based Concertus is in the final of the national RICS Awards for its work on Clements Primary School.
Meanwhile, Concertus’ contributions to the building of Westfield Primary Academy, in Chalkstone Way, which opened in 2012, has earned it a place in the final of the Public Sector Building Project of the Year at the 2013 Suffolk Property Awards, which take place on November 14.
Andrew Rowe, Concertus managing director said: “We are very pleased with both of them and I think both schools are very proud of what they’ve got.
“They are really nice buildings but also very good teaching spaces for the children, which is clearly the important thing.”
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 Clements Primary, which opened in 2011.
The category recognises outstanding achievement in providing a facility which directly benefits the local community.
Concertus won the East of England award and now goes forward to the Grand Final at The Savoy in London tomorrow (October 18) where it will be up against 11 other UK regional winners.
Judges consider the project’s effect on the local community and environment and the impact and benefits the buildings have on the people that use them.
