Conwy’s Coed Pella wins RICS Regeneration Award
Muse Developments’ Coed Pella scheme, delivered in partnership with Conwy County Borough Council has taken home the coveted Regeneration Award at this year’s regional Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Awards.
The new 100,000 sq ft, BREEAM Excellent building in Colwyn Bay is home to around 800 employees and has replaced up to 13 existing buildings, helping to maximise efficiency for the council, as well as significantly contributing to the overall regeneration of the town centre.
Mike Horner, development director at Muse Developments, said: “The RICS Awards are one of the most widely recognised in our industry, so to take home the Regeneration Award is a proud moment for everyone involved in delivering the Coed Pella building.
“At Muse, partnership working is vital to the success of any program of regeneration. It’s a value we hold close and we make sure it’s evident in every scheme we deliver.”
Bleddyn Evans, project manager for Conwy County Borough Council said: “Regenerating Colwyn Bay is a Council priority and I’m delighted Coed Pella has been recognised for its contribution to that regeneration. By securing what would otherwise have been a derelict town centre site, the development has already encouraged other businesses to set up in the town, and is supporting existing businesses with the extra staff and visitor foot-fall.”
Regional winners will go through to the RICS Awards 2019 Grand Final in London on the 8 November at the Royal Lancaster Hotel.
