Commercial Project of the Year with a Value Under £5m

Sponsored by Smith & Williamson

Congratulations to the Marine Station in Plymouth, winner of the Commercial Project of the Year with a Value Under £5m category at the Michelmores Property Awards 2015.

The Marine Station project was commissioned by Plymouth University to replace an existing facility no longer fit for purpose. Presented with a stunning waterfront site Balfour Beatty appointed its own, local consultant team to conceive and create a beautifully designed building, developed with the involvement of University staff, students and end users. The result is 1,500 m² of flexible, functional teaching and research space that reasserts Plymouth Univeristy as the preeminent marine research institution in the UK.
