A Gloucestershire school's theatre has won an RCIS Awards 2024.

The Cidermill Theatre at Chipping Campden School was revealed as the winner of the Community Benefit Project category at the RICS South West regional awards.

The impressive structure came out on top in an award ceremony that serves to recognise the most remarkable construction and infrastructure projects in the area, judged across five categories: Residential Development, Community Benefit, Heritage, Public Sector, and Refurbishment-Revitalisation.

The awards, announced during a ceremony at the Delta Hotels by Marriott in Bristol City Centre, saw the theatre emerge as the pick of the lot.

In total, this project stands as a testament to the grit, vision, and innovation of a committed team of four individuals.

They surmounted numerous obstacles over the course of a demanding 12 years, from conception to completion of the theatre.

In all, the RICS Awards 2024 aimed to honour inspiring initiatives and noteworthy accomplishments in land, real estate, construction, and infrastructure within the South West.

This year, the list of winning projects spanned across a range of sectors, from a Heritage Project at Dartmoor National Park to a Refurbishment/Revitalisation Project at Bayspace St Ives.

Other winners included the Keynvor residential development in Mawgan Porth for Residential Development and Keynsham Recycling Hub for the Public Sector Project.

James Wakeham, Chair of the South West RICS Awards judging panel, expressed commendation for the winning projects.

He said: "These winning projects are a true testament to the hard work and dedication of industry professionals in the South West.

"The talent and collaborative approaches undertaken by the teams behind these projects have resulted in exemplary and innovative schemes that really do represent the very best built projects across the South West."

The successful regional winners are now set to compete at the RICS Awards Grand Final, scheduled to take place at The Park Plaza Riverbank, London on October 4.

The grand event will see each of the top-ranking regional victors square off against each other at the national level.

The ultimate trophy at stake is the coveted Project of the Year award.
