Cornwall Hotel up for RICS award


A St Austell restoration project has been submitted for this year’s RICS awards.

The Cornwall Hotel Estate and Spa at Pentewan Road in Tregorrick has been entered for the Building Conservation category.

The RICS Awards consists of four categories: Building Conservation, Regeneration, Sustainability and Community benefit.

In the Building conservation category, entrants are required to demonstrate particular attention to background research, the construction materials/techniques used and the project’s long-term prospects.

In all 26 regional entries have been received in the south west.

These projects will compete in a regional heat, with the best entrants then forming the shortlist for the grand final awards. Regional winners will be announced in April/May and will then go through to the national final in October.
