Many of Ryearch’s construction and civil engineering projects (and our staff) have been shortlisted for and won industry awards, recognising the significant contribution we have made to shaping Plymouth’s built environment.
The Herald Business Awards
This award from Plymouth’s favourite daily newspaper seeks to recognise the best Plymouth businesses each year.
Ryearch won the Built Environment & Infrastructure category, in recognition for the major contribution we have made to the city’s development since 1990. More information can be found here.
Building Excellence Awards
These annual awards from the South West LABC (Local Authority Building Control) with Plymouth City Council seek to recognise ‘building excellence in the delivery of outstanding construction and workmanship.’
Best Educational Building was awarded to Ryearch’s project at Stoke Damerel Primary School.

Best individual dwelling was awarded to Ryearch’s project at Lusty Glaze in Newquay, The Sea House.
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 recognise those buildings and spaces which help make our city such a fantastic place to live, work and visit – they take place every three years.
Ryearch’s Plymouth Market project secured Highly Commended for two categories, namely Best Conversion or Conservation Project and Best Commercial Project.
Drake’s Place also won the coveted People of Plymouth award, having received the most votes from members of the public.
Three Ryearch schemes were shortlisted for Best Public Space – West End Public Space, Cumberland Gardens and Granby Green – with the latter winning this category.
Armed Forces Covenant – Employer Recognition Scheme
The Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS) acknowledges employers who have provided exceptional support to the armed forces community, and allows the Ministry of Defence to publicly honour those organisations for their support.
Ryearch achieved the bronze award ‘in national recognition of their commitment to the Armed Forces‘.
Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) – National Site Award
The National Site Awards recognise those sites registered with the CCS that have raised the bar for considerate construction.
Ryearch constituted the main site team at the Marjon Link Road scheme for Amey LG, and this silver award recognised ‘the highest levels of consideration towards the public, its workforce and the environment through adhering to the Scheme’s five-point Code of Considerate Practice‘.
