Greenland Primary School in South Moor, County Durham, which was constructed on behalf of Durham County Council, was recently awarded the hotly contested ‘Community Benefit’ accolade.

This award acknowledges the positive impact by a new build or recently refurbished project on the local community.

Since opening, Greenland Primary School has become the heart of the village of South Moor, with more than 300 people from outside the school using its facilities each week. This is a remarkable achievement when compared to the original school, which was only ever used by one other outside organisation.

Each day the school proudly plays host to a range of community groups, such as local history clubs and youth offending teams as well, as sporting organisations, particularly junior football and rugby teams who put the MUGAS to great use.

Congratulations go to everyone involved in the scheme, it is extremely rewarding to see projects we have been involved with receive such accolades.

The project will now compete in the national final of the RICS Renaissance Awards, which will take place later this year in London.
