Ridge are delighted to see the Welbeck Abbey, Portland Collection Gallery shortlisted for for an RICS award under four categories.
Welbeck is a working estate and contains a Grade 2 listed registered historic park and at its heart lies Welbeck Abbey.

The new building design incorporates skillful use of natural daylight, extensive passive measures to minimise energy consumption, extremely low-energy design solutions and renewable energy sources. The building provides closely controlled temperature and humidity to meet Government Indemnity Scheme standards.
Ridge, providing Cost Manager and M&E Quantity Surveying services, undertook value engineering workshops at key stages of the project to maintain the schedule and the project was delivered within budget and on time to allow the exhibits to be displayed within the Client’s required timescales.
