The Abercrombie Awards are designed to celebrate Plymouth’s best developments, from small scale conversions through to multi-million pound schemes.
Named after the architect who planned the reconstruction of Plymouth after the Blitz, the awards are hosted by Plymouth City Council and recognise those buildings and spaces which help make our city such a fantastic place to live, work and visit.
Taking place every three years, the 2017 Abercrombie Awards received over 60 entries across eight main categories. One of Ryearch’s projects – the Plymouth Market – secured Highly Commended for two of the categories, namely Best Conversion or Conservation Project and Best Commercial Project.
Many other Ryearch projects have been shortlisted and won at previous Abercrombie Awards, recognising the work we have done in partnership with architects and designers in shaping the city.
At the 2014 Abercrombie Awards, our Devonport Column project won the Best Conversion or Conservation category and Ryearch’s Drake’s Place Gardens & Reservoir project won the Best Public Space category. Drake’s Place also won the coveted People of Plymouth award, having received the most votes from members of the public.
The 2010 Abercrombie Awards celebrated several of Ryearch’s outdoor spaces projects, all delivered by our Civil Engineering team. Three schemes were shortlisted for Best Public Space – West End Public Space, Cumberland Gardens and Granby Green – with the latter winning this category.
