Awards lining up for RCHT’s outstanding capital projects

Posted on:

Excitement is building in the Major Capital Projects team at RCHT as three of our latest projects have been shortlisted for several major construction awards.

Our amazing new Trelawny Scanning Suite and Lowen Ward project has already picked up the top structural award at the Concrete Society Southwest Regional Awards in February this year; and now this £34.6 million project has been shortlisted as a finalist in three more upcoming award ceremonies:

  • The Michelmores Property Awards in the Project of the Year category (over £5m), where the overall winner will be announced on 27 June 2024 at Sandy Park Exeter;
  • The Construction News Awards in the Project of the Year (£20-£50m) category where the gala awards evening is taking place in London on 11 July 2024; and
  • The Constructing Excellence Southwest Awards, in the Infrastructure Project of the Year category, which will be taking place at the British Aerospace Museum in Bristol on 18 July 2024.

Elsewhere, our Critical Care Healing Garden, which opened at RCH in September 2023 after a substantial fundraising campaign, has also been shortlisted as a finalist in the Community Engagement Project of the Year category at the Construction News Awards in London on 11 July 2024.  We are grateful to the Nursing Times for sponsoring our tickets to the gala evening so that colleagues from RCHT can attend.

In addition, the Mermaid Centre project, which last year saw the sequential replacement of three mammography scanners alongside other internal room improvements, has also been shortlisted at the Constructing Excellence Southwest Awards on 18 July 2024, this time in the Environmental, Social and Governance Category.

Finally, we are delighted to announce that one of our Assistant Project Managers, Bethan Andrew, has been shortlisted in the “Rising Star – Contribution to a Project” category at the national Inspiring Women in Construction Awards 2024. This is an exceptional achievement for Bethan who joined the team less than three years ago with no previous project management experience. Her hard work and willingness to learn has led her to this point, and now she will be presenting her work in London in August before the awards ceremony takes place in September.

Good luck to our Major Capital Projects colleagues in the next few weeks, and also to our construction partners across all three projects nominated: Cormac, Kier and BAM.
