Leading planning and design consultancy Terence O’Rourke has been nominated for a prestigious industry award.
The multi-award winning consultant is a finalist in the category for the Employer Award for Excellence at the Royal Town Planning Institute’s (RTPI) Awards for Planning Excellence 2017.
The RTPI Awards are some of the most established and respected in the UK planning industry. Running for 40 years, they celebrate exceptional examples of planning and the contribution planners make to society.
Terence O’Rourke has been recognised for this year’s RTPI ceremony after its excellent work in investing significant time and resources into learning and development initiatives for staff, known as the Practice Development Group (PDG).
“We are delighted to be on the shortlist at this prestigious award’s ceremony,” Tim Hancock, Managing Director of Terence O’Rourke, said. “We believe that by investing in staff development we are able to remain as a leader in our field while also being able to secure the best employees.”
Stephen Wilkinson, President of the Royal Town Planning Institute, said: “The finalists represent some outstanding contributions to planning which are making a positive impact for the community and environment. The judges will find it difficult choosing the winners given the high calibre of entries this year.”
The judges have shortlisted 90 finalists across 14 categories with an overall winner awarded the Silver Jubilee Cup. This year saw an increase of nearly 40 per cent in entrants.
Winners will be announced during a ceremony held at Milton Court at The Barbican, London on 15 June 2017.
