Confirmed Programme

  • Tuesday 2nd June: Awards Programme Officially Open
  • Monday 31st August: Awards Submission Deadline
  • Friday 4th September: TVPropFest Judges Meeting

Best Space and Interior Design Project Award

Sponsored by:  TBC

About this award:

The creation of new space, when designed to a high standard, can generate a real change in workstyle for the occupier, and become the catalyst for new ways of working, innovation and successful growth of the business. This award is aimed at architects, fit-out contractors, consultant’s or designers who can show evidence of completing a successful project for a client. Using references from clients, photos and other supporting evidence, all submissions need to reflect the scope and depth of your success.

Best Project Vision in the Thames Valley

Sponsored by: TBC

About this award:

This will reward a proposal, application or outline plan by a client, design team or professional team for a project (commercial, retail, industrial or residential) located in the county of Berkshire which shows a clear vision, aspiration and inspirational approach to the brief. The submission could have been featured in Thames Tap or maybe just be a random proposal, however, the main criteria for success is that it reflects the aspiration and ambitions of the client and design team to develop a project of real value. The winning submission will also be showcased in Thames Tap, circulated to more than 7500+ across the London and Thames Valley region and exhibited at TvPropFest 2020 to be held in Reading Town Hall in October.

Best Planning Consultant of the Year

Sponsored by:    TBC

About this award:

Nominations must show the following criteria in their submissions: evidence of success over a long period of time, a range of successful projects delivered, and an overview of the team skills based in Berkshire. The key issue for the judges is the identification of a consultant that offers something unique and raises the level of service above their competitors. (For clarification, the term consultant covers companies which receive a ‘fee’ for their services such as engineers, planners and consultants does not include contractors).

Best Law Firm of the Year

Sponsored by: TBC

About this award:

This award will identify law firms operating in the built environment, construction and real estate sectors (nominees will work across the area of Berkshire in one or all of the following: office, industrial, retail and/or housing) who can demonstrate that they have been active in the Berkshire market place, closing deals, creating new business opportunities and have matched their business plan objectives during the 12 months of 2019. Using references from clients and other supporting evidence, all submissions will need to reflect the scope and depth of your successes in Berkshire.

Best Property Advisor of the Year

Sponsored by: TBC

About this award:

This prestigious award will identify the company (nominees will work across the area of Berkshire and will be a property advisor/agent working in one or more of the following sectors: office, industrial, retail or housing) who can demonstrate that they have been active in the Berkshire marketplace, such as by closing deals, creating new business opportunities and have met their business plan objectives during the 12 months of 2019. All submissions should reflect the scope and depth of your successes in Berkshire, using references from clients and other supporting evidence.

Future Star of the Year (Under 35)

Sponsored by:  TBC

About this award:

A celebration of a person under 35 who has shown real leadership and is an inspiration to others around them in their businesses. Award submissions need to demonstrate, not only how the individual has become an integral part of the business, but also how they have shown responsibility beyond their age. Examples of successful project delivery may include evidence of success from their clients in the form of references and case studies. All shortlisted entries will have an opportunity to join the panel at TvPropFest and contribute to the editorial format of the event on 15th October.

Networker of the Year

Sponsored by: TBC

About this award:

Who are the best networkers operating across the Thames Valley and who has shown the ability to join the dots, generating business development opportunities for their companies and creating long-term relationships? Using references from clients and other supporting evidence, all submissions will need to reflect the scope and depth of your successes in the county of Berkshire. This will then be voted upon by the audience at TvPropFest 2020 using the online system, Slido.com and will act as a final test for the nominees to network and get nominations from delegates at the dinner to be held at Reading Town Hall on 15th October.

Leader of the Year Award

Sponsored by:  TBC

About this award:

Nominations will come from individuals working in the property sector who have been integral to the success of the Berkshire market over a period of time, not just a one-hit wonder, so to speak. They must be able to demonstrate personal success and evidence of helping to fulfil not only their own personal goals but also the aspirations of their team.  A long list will be drawn up, from which a shortlist and the eventual winner will be selected. This will be Berkshire’s blue-ribbon award and a real accolade to win, something a bit special.

Nominees are being kept under wraps until the evening.
