RIBA North West Jury Chair, Hazel Rounding welcomed the news:

“The 10 projects shortlisted in the North West this year represent a wide range of typologies and geographic coverage. The quality of the schemes submitted by a variety of exceptional architects stimulated some interesting debate amongst the panel. It is however the integrated ability to embrace environmental consciousness no matter what the scale, budget or timing of design that ties the shortlist together and endorses their contribution to region, community and profession.”
