RIBA East Midlands Regional Award Nomination
The Vijay Patel Building at De Montfort University has made the shortlist for the RIBA East Midlands Regional awards. Making the East Midlands Regional shortlist is the first step to be considered for a RIBA National Award.
Umesh Desai, Director of Estates & Commercial Services at De Monfort University, said:
“Being shortlisted by the RIBA further reinforces the visual and architectural impact our campus transformation projects have made not only on the campus, but on the city as well. The striking features of the Vijay Patel Building on the skyline are absolutely stunning and every day I get comments from different people about how amazing and fantastic the campus looks, and how they wished they’d studied here. The architects on this project have really done us proud."
