Commercial, Industrial and Retail

Projects entering the Commercial, Industrial and Retail category – sponsored by Cripps – must demonstrate an exciting and design-led approach to achieving quality and economic growth locally.

Mike Scott, partner and head of real estate at Cripps, said: “This category represents an important aspect of the county’s development scene, not least for its impact on the business community which requires good quality premises to operate from. Our work means we often work with clients on the development, purchase or sale of commercial property and we are pleased to have this opportunity to support the sector.”

Schemes can range from industrial retail parks through to individual buildings and shop front refurbishment and can include any high quality retail, commercial or industrial developments. This category includes schemes that cover manufacturing, warehousing, office, hotels and leisure.
