The King’s Lynn Innovation Centre (KLIC), owned by enterprise agency Nwes has been announced as a 2017 winner of a prestigious RICS Award.
The East of England RICS Awards 2017 showcases the most inspirational initiatives and developments in the region. Nominated in two categories, the Commercial Property award was presented to KLIC architects Fielden & Mawson at a ceremony in Bury St Edmunds on Wednesday 10 May.
Built by RG Carters, and developed in partnership with New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership and King’s Lynn and West Norfolk Borough Council, KLIC is the latest innovation hub to be delivered by Nwes, offering long-awaited state-of-the-art commercial workspace, business support, access to finance, and business events in West Norfolk.
KLIC was one of three leading regeneration projects in the region and voted by RICS as the best Commercial Property. The award was the second accolade within a month for the flagship business centre, which opened in June 2016.
“We are delighted that Fielden & Mawson and the King’s Lynn Innovation Centre have been recognised by RICS East of England.” Nwes Strategic Director, John Balch says.
“As with all complex construction projects KLIC presented many challenges and this award is testament to an extraordinary team effort in delivering this unique building on time and under-budget. Our ethos for KLIC has been ‘excellence through innovation’ and this award is acknowledgment that this has been achieved.”
