careyjones chapmantolcher are delighted to announce that Wakefield Westgate Station and 10 Wellington Place have been shortlisted for the Best Infrastructure and Best Commercial Project respectively at the Pro-Yorkshire RICS Awards 2015.

The new Westgate Station is the centrepiece of the Wakefield’s key Development Area and one of the first projects within the infrastructure sector to achieve a BREAM excellent rating. While providing a welcoming, modern and fully accessible environment for customers and passengers alike, the building complements the combinations of offices, retail, MSCP and leisure elements previously designed by CJCT as part of Merchant Gate Masterplan.

With the addition of Westgate Station and its physical and visual connections with the rest of the site, careyjones chapmantolcher create a cohesive development, bringing identity and sense of place to one of the major regeneration projects in the North of England.

10 Wellington Place is the first building completed within the new mixed-use urban district in the heart of Leeds. Already shortlisted for Best Corporate workplace at the BCO Awards 2015, this highly efficient and low-energy building, with a BREAM Excellent rating and an A EPC certification, has become a quality benchmark for future developments within Wellington Place Masterplan and Leeds City.
