The event saw the people and businesses that have designed, developed, funded and continue to manage the built environment recognised for their outstanding achievements across the region.
The ‘Deal of the Year’ award was in recognition of the £130m investment into Millers Quay agreed last year.
The judges said the deal, representing an investment by a London-based pension fund into one of the poorest areas in the UK, is an example of levelling-up in action, and that its scale, given the location, was “monumental”.
Richard Mawdsley, Director of Development for Wirral Waters at Peel L&P, commented on the award: “It is wonderful to be recognised in this way. Miller’s Quay is a major scale, catalytic and highly sustainable residential development that will deliver a mix of new homes, including affordable. Projects like this, a great example of brownfield regeneration, only happen through collaboration. Millers Quay has been made possible through a special partnership between Peel L&P, Homes England, Wirral Council, and our funding partner, Pension Insurance Corporation plc, and we would like to thank everyone involved.
“Since we started onsite last year, working with our contractor, GRAHAM, we have seen fantastic progress on site, as well as full engagement with both Wirral Met College and local supply chains. We are hopefully going to see the first of the topping out ceremonies very soon!”
