Sponsored by Paul Robinson, this exciting new category recognises that our region has produced some exceptional projects and developments but sometimes with little celebration and recognition for their contribution to the area.

The award has been opened to all companies and organisations who have helped create new, redeveloped, or refurbished building or landscape projects which have made a significant contribution to the environment and contributed to the quality of life in our communities.

The project should involve positive contributions to the local area.

This could include having created a project which has made a significant contribution to the environment and ultimately to the bottom line.

It must also show that a building or project is not just about a structure itself but giving something to the present and future community in which it is situated.

Simon Nicholas, Principal at the Paul Robinson Partnership, said: 'Key to delivering success will be a focus on the imaginative design qualities, while ensuring this is combined with practical and forward thinking ideas.

'Over the past few years the construction industry has been hit hard by the economic downturn so entrants to this category will have responded frequently to the changing market and kept up to date with changes in building legislation along the way to produce something which has most likely been scrutinized by the local community and relevant planning departments.'
