The Bonus Arena Sweeps Awards Night in the North East

Hull’s new £40m arena has won three trophies across two awards ceremonies.

The project, already proving a huge success for the city since its opening in summer 2018, took the Design through Innovation Award at the Yorkshire and Humber RICS Awards and Best Public Service Building at the LABC Building Excellence South Yorkshire and Humber Awards. The full team of AFL Architects, Hull City Council, BAM, NPS Group, SMG and IPW… were also delighted that the LABC judges awarded the Bonus Arena the Winner amongst Winners trophy.

RICS judges praised the team behind the striking Bonus Arena for pushing the design boundaries and using innovative solutions to make its interior spaces so flexible, with retractable seating and temporary staging.

These awards mean the project will progress to the national Grand Finals. The final of the RICS Awards will take place on the 4th October, with the LABC Awards on the 8th November.
