Grantham Savoy Cinema shortlisted for top building industry awards
The Savoy Cinema in Grantham has been shortlisted for a prestigious building industry awards.
The cinema has been nominated for the 'Best Large Commercial Project' in the East Midlands regional finals of this year’s Local Authority Building Control Building Excellence Awards.
The project was nominated by East Midlands Building Control, which ensured both were fully compliant with building regulations.
The winners will be announced at a digital awards ceremony on Thursday, August 27.
The cabinet member for growth, councillor Barry Dobson, said: “Making the shortlist for these prestigious awards recognises the hard work and attention to detail that went into drawing up the plans for Wherry’s Lane and seeing the project through to completion.
“Attracting residents to come and live in town centres is an essential part of our vision for the district. These affordable properties are enabling young people to get on to the housing ladder and contribute to the vitality of the town centre.”
Building work on the 20,000sq ft Savoy Cinema, which opened last year, was led by contractor GF Tomlinson.
The complex also includes a new centre for the University of Lincoln, bringing higher education opportunities to the town.
The chairman of SKDC, Councillor Jacky Smith, said: “This multi-million pound development is a major investment in Grantham and is a vital part of our overall vision for improvements to the town centre.
"To be nominated for the LABC awards is testament to all the hard work that went into this project.”
