Our Paxman Academy project was recently shortlisted for the prestigious RICS Social Impact Awards, in the category of Education. We were extremely proud and pleased to be shortlisted from over 460 outstanding projects.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, RICS decided to move the RICS Social Impact Award ceremonies to a digital platform this year. It was a shame we were unable to attend the awards ceremony for the East of England but we enjoyed watching the virtual ceremony via the RICS YouTube channel. Emma Jesson, ITV Weather Presenter, and Phil Spencer, Television Presenter and Journalist who is best known as the co-presenter of Location, Location, Location, hosted the event which showcased this year’s shortlisted projects. We would like to congratulate all of the winners and runners-up.
David Brooks Wilson, Chair of the award judging panel said: “This year’s shortlisted projects show the power of built environment professionals to make a positive impact on society and our communities.”
