Four projects built by the same company – Salford-based contractor BAM Construction – have been shortlisted for five awards in the North West.   The projects – which are shortlisted for the RICS (Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors) North West Awards 2011 come from across the region and span several categories. The shortlisted projects include St Peters Square in Stockport, a development by sister company BAM properties which is listed in the commercial category. South Cheshire College has been listed for its sustainability; Culcheth High School in Warrington features in the community category as does Bolton College, while in the design and innovation category South Cheshire College features again for its second award nomination.   Steve Byrne, Director of BAM Construction in the North West, said:   ‘I’m really pleased that BAM’s projects have featured for so many different aspects of the builds, from the quality of the design and the commercial impact through to the way the buildings perform and how we worked with our clients and their communities. It’s a very healthy sign for us as a company and for our clients and sub-contractors with whom we’ve worked so closely to complete these, that so many of our projects are shortlisted.’

The winners will be announced on 12 May at Lancashire County Cricket Club and regional winners will be automatically entered into the national RICS Awards, where they compete against other leading projects from across the UK.
