Have you the best building?

Wednesday, 5th September, 2018 4:32pm

The search is on for Cork's best designed and maintained properties. This year in particular, organisers of the Cork Better Building Awards 2018 want to recognise the huge amount of expansion and planning ongoing on Leeside.

The awards congratulate staff, managers, property owners, developers, architects and designers for high standards in design, conservation and creativity, and also salute the window cleaners, painters and maintenance staff on their good practice in the presentation and upkeep of the buildings. This significantly contributes to a positive public perception of the city as a vibrant and dynamic place to live, visit, invest and do business in.

The awards, launched recently by Cork Business Association (CBA), in association with Cork City Council are open to any building in the greater Cork area. Whether you're in the heart of the city or further afield in neighbouring areas like Ballincollig, Glanmire or Blarney, the CBA welcomes your nominations and is urging every business owner, heritage building owner, architect, conservationist to apply before the September 24 deadline.

Lawrence Owens, CEO of Cork Business Association, said: “Vacancy rate in the city has gone down almost 10 per cent in the last three years, which has instilled a fresh sense of confidence in the city. In fact, it was reported that an estimated €1.3bn worth of projects were started or completed last year. As the city thrives, we need to ensure it looks its best at all times. The Cork Better Building Awards, which we are thrilled to partner with Cork City Council on again, are a fantastic opportunity to encourage businesses to improve their facades and the overall look of the city.” The awards will be presented by the Lord Mayor of Cork Cllr Mick Finn at the Metropole Hotel on Friday 19 October.
