Birmingham Airport honoured with awards

Birmingham City Airport's new Air Traffic Control Tower has been crowned Project of the Year and won a further award for the best ‘Regeneration’ scheme at the 2013 RICS West Midlands Awards.

The Airport received the two gongs at a ceremony held at The National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham.

The prestigious annual contest celebrates inspirational initiatives in the land, property and construction sectors, and has recognised the important part that the Airport’s developments play in supporting the region’s economy.

The acclaimed Project of the Year title is presented to the scheme which shows outstanding best practice.

The Air Traffic Control facility at Birmingham Airport triumphed over what the judges described as tough competition, winning not only the overall title but also the Regeneration category.
