Along with those, a theatre, civic centre and university building will be judged by a panel of experts with winners of the North East regional awards to be announced virtually in May.

Entries are shortlisted in five different categories – Community Benefit, Heritage, Public Sector, Refurbishment-Revitalisation and Residential.

Chair of the RICS Awards judging panel Stephanie Marshall MRICS said: “Despite much uncertainty and challenging conditions over the past couple of years, property professionals in the North East continue to deliver exemplary, and in many cases, world-class built projects that are having a profoundly positive impact on our cities and towns.

“I wish the teams behind them all the best of luck in gaining recognition for their skills and hard work.”
