October 1st saw the cream of the North East’s Architectural community gather at the home of Newcastle United, St. James’ Park to be inspired, network and vote live on the evening and then celebrate the winner of the North East Project of the Year Award over dinner and drinks.
Specifi Newcastle saw 75 people from across 30 North East architectural and construction-related businesses come together to enjoy inspiration from our keynote speaker and digital evangelist – Paul Wilkinson, network over drinks and peruse a bumper crop of awards entries before peers placed their vote live with winners announced on the evening over dinner.
Unlike many other awards, these are voted for by peers LIVE on the evening and every vote cast had the additional positive effect of planting a tree for our charity partner Tree Aid, the evening’s votes generated over 100 trees towards Specifi’s 5000 tree target over the year.
The eventual and most deserving winner on the evening voted for by their peers was Medical Architecture’s, Jean Bishop Integrated Care Centre project. They were also joined by the Highly Commended project from the Newcastle Architecture Society’s, Culvert Bandstand project.
