Paul McTernan, Technical Director - Planning (pictured centre) was delighted to pick up the International Innovation Award at the IPI International Awards held at Dublin Castle on Friday 19th February 2016
Winner: SLR Consulting - East Pit/Lakes at Rhosamman Regeneration Masterplan, Wales; and Paisley Town Centre Heritage Asset Strategy.
"The judging panel wishes to award SLR Consulting in the International Innovation category for two projects – one in Scotland and one in Wales. Both are multidisciplinary projects directed and project managed by corporate members of the IPI based in Dublin and Belfast. Both the Paisley Town Centre Heritage Asset Strategy and East Pit/Lakes at Rhosamman Regeneration Masterplan, Wales worked with communities and took bold and enterprising approaches to creating new and vibrant places.
In Paisley the move beyond the retail-led regeneration is notable. In Wales the Masterplan for a 585ha site demonstrates planning for restoration, economic diversification and opportunity. Both projects focus on the deep heritage, cultural and community traditions of the areas involved and concentrate on developing inherent strengths."
