Botwell Green Sports and Leisure Centre in Hayes has won the top gong in the community benefit category at the Royal Institute of Chartered of Surveyors (RICS) London Awards.
The centre received the award for redeveloping Botwell Green into an urban park that provides a number of sports, leisure, community and educational facilities.
When assessing the project, the London RICS judges found “wide local consultation had resulted in a very well used and much appreciated leisure centre that brings benefits to a wide cross-section of the community and to the town as a whole”.
Chairman of the RICS Awards London Judges, Barry Woodman, said: “This ambitious project has incorporated measures to improve access, reduce anti-social behaviour and create a valued hub for the local community.”
Each year the RICS Awards celebrate outstanding achievement in the built environment across the four categories: Building Conservation; Community Benefit and Regeneration and Sustainability.
Botwell Green Sports and Leisure Centre along with the other London category winnerswill now go on to compete with regional winners from across the country at the RICS Awards grand final in October.
