Those who received prizes have been invited to attend an awards dinner in their region and can use the “prestigious” award logo in their company marketing.
Bernard Weatherhill House, reported to have cost £3.1 million, will now vie for an International Property Award, which is considered a “world-renowned mark of excellence”.

The panel of judges received hundreds of entries from across the UK and the ceremony hosted developers, architects and interior designers of the highest level.

Croydon councillor, Simon Hall, said he is “delighted” that this “fantastic building” has been honoured as “its design and architecture is are among the very best in the country.”
