Focus Consultants is celebrating the news that a project the company was involved in has been named Project of the Decade at the ProCon Awards in Leicestershire.

Focus was project manager and contract administrator for the Leicester city centre theatre Curve which picked up the People’s Choice Award.

Designed by award-winning architect Rafael Vinoly, Curve was completed in 2008.

“It is great news to hear that Curve has been voted Project of the Decade, and everyone at Focus is pleased for the whole team involved in the scheme,” said partner at Focus Keith Butler.

The ProCon Awards were attended by around 600 guests from the property, construction and other business sectors. The People’s Choice Award was sponsored by local newspaper The Leicester Mercury and voted for by readers.
