PE KEVII June 17 HR 11

The award winning redevelopment of the former King Edward VII hospital at Midhurst is among 38 of the South East’s most innovative and community beneficial property projects which have been shortlisted for prestigious industry accolades in the 2018 RICS Awards, South East.

The King Edward VII Estate, a landmark development set in 165 acres of woodland in the heart of the South Downs National Park, is shortlisted for both Building Conservation and Residential awards.

It comprises a unique mix of Grade II and II* listed buildings which have been restored and converted into one, two and three bedroom homes, combining the Arts & Crafts architecture of the former tuberculosis hospital with luxurious contemporary living.

The annual awards recognise exemplary built projects that are positively contributing to the region and this year schemes of all sizes and budgets – from all over the South East – are in with a chance of gaining acclaimed industry recognition, along with the teams behind them.

Those shortlisted will automatically be considered for the ‘South East Project of the Year’ title, for the scheme which demonstrates overall outstanding best practice and a commitment to adding value to its local area.

The awards take place on Wednesday, May 9, at the Kassam Stadium in Oxford.
