The quest to find 2017’s Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce Building of the Year moves up a gear on Friday as the shortlisted buildings welcome on site the Awards judging panel. Experts from the property and construction sector will tour the seven shortlisted venues, to help determine which development will be awarded the coveted Building of the Year Award.
Looking forward to welcoming the judges are:
- Bright Building, Manchester Science Park
- Maggie’s, Oldham
- Oldham Town Hall
- Spire Manchester Hospital
- Stockport Exchange
- The Bund, Salford Quays
- Two St Peter’s Square, Manchester
The aim of the award is to recognise a building’s contribution to Greater Manchester in terms of construction and development. This could include the building’s significance to the City Region, its impact on the local economy, its effect on the local community, its importance in terms of urban regeneration and environmental enhancement, its design excellence, or its contribution to urban design and townscape.
The Award will be a focal point of the Property & Construction Annual Awards Ceremony, sponsored by Siemens and taking place at The Hilton, Deansgate, on October 19th. Also taking to the stage will be the winner of the “Apprentice of the Year” Award, sponsored by Laing O’Rourke.
Previous winners include: Maggie’s Manchester(2016), The Whitworth (2015), Manchester Central Library (2014) and No. 1 Riverside, Rochdale (2013).
