Constructing Excellence in the North East have announced the shortlist for their Twenty Sixteen Awards, the region’s built environment awards, with a Patrick Parsons project nominated in two categories.

Rosedale Court, Portland Green has been shortlisted in both the Sustainability and Value categories. Judges will be looking for projects that demonstrate the effective management of environmental, social and economic aspects as well as the impact that the project has upon the users, the built environment and the wider community.

As part of a seven phase development, Patrick Parsons carried out structural and civil engineering design services for the seven storey block on the student accommodation site, including detailed design of the steel frame structure as well as designs for private access roads, footpaths and parking areas.

Developed by Metnor Property Group and built by Metnor Construction, Rosedale Court opened for the start of the academic year in September 2015. Situated in the Shieldfield area of Newcastle, the building accommodates 338 bed spaces, with the ground floor providing three retail units and various facilities for students.

Further categories in this year’s awards include Innovation, Integration & Collaborative Working and BIM Project of the Year and winner will be announced at an awards dinner on Friday 10th June 2016 at the Newcastle Marriott Gosforth Park Hotel.
