Cantebury Hall has been nominated in the best high-volume housing development, best inclusive building, best educational building and best large commercial project.
Managing director of Fraser Morgan Mark Robinson said: “We’re absolutely thrilled our Canterbury Hall development has been recognised in this way.
“This scheme was always about offering something different within the student accommodation sector in Preston – providing not just a place to live, but an inspiring environment that allows students to thrive.
“More than anything these nominations show the quality and craftsmanship that’s gone into creating this sustainable, high-performing building. It’s a credit to our construction partner, architect and wider professional team of consultants for delivering such an outstanding project.”
