New transport hub leaves awards with gong

One of Gloucester's new landmark buildings has received praise at a prestigious region-wide awards.

Opened at the end of last year Gloucester Transport Hub was much-championed - not just as a significant improvement on the previous bus station, but also as a piece of architecture the city could be proud of.

It was a point picked up by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Awards (RICS Awards), which shortlisted it in two categories - regeneration and infrastructure.

Architects BDP was also nominated for an Architect of the Year award - for its design of the Gloucester Transport Hub, no less.

James Wakeham FRICS, said: "A diverse range of innovative projects, of all sizes and budgets, made the shortlist this year and the winners are truly representative of the South West's most innovative built projects which have a significant positive impact on their communities.

"The teams behind the all shortlisted entries have created exceptional projects."

But the question on your lips by now, surely, is 'did the Gloucester project win?'."

The answer is this - it was highly commended in the Infrastructure category, pipped at the post by Wiltshire Air Ambulance New Air Base, Trowbridge.

Bristol Old Vic, Bristol, was named Project of the Year.
