Hat-trick for Faithful+Gould at RICS Awards

The Birmingham office of leading project and programme management consultancy Faithful+Gould has scored a hat-trick of wins at the recent West Midlands RICS Awards.

Faithful+Gould worked on the University of Birmingham Chamberlain residences that won in the best residential development category and the Birmingham Institute of Forest Research (BIFoR) that picked up the top award in the best infrastructure category and was voted the overall Project of the Year.

The RICS Awards are widely regarded as the premier property and construction awards in the country, and the West Midlands RICS Awards bring together the most innovative projects, across eight categories across the region.

“This has been a fantastic effort by the team involved on both projects,” says John Rawlinson, Head of Operations at Faithful+Gould Birmingham. “Chamberlain Residences reinforces our position as the pre-eminent consultancy for student accommodation and residential schemes.”

“BIFoR is a game-changing project which will have a far-reaching impact on design and use across the globe, now and for future generations and is rightly a contender to win the RICS Project of the Year Award in November,” said John.

University of Birmingham Chamberlain is a new, contemporary high and low-rise student development, providing 726 bedrooms at the top of the Vale Student Village. With extensive experience in delivering student accommodation, Faithful+Gould has also worked for the University of Warwick on Sherbourne Residences Phase 1 and 2 and Aston University’s Lakeside accommodation project.

Faithful+Gould’s work on BIFoR for the University of Birmingham at the new Stafford site saw the company’s Birmingham office provide quantity surveying services for the CO2 research facility. The only facility of its kind in the UK, it will investigate the effect of climate change on existing mature woodlands by simulating the atmospheric conditions expected in 2070.
