The companies and individuals who made the shortlist for the Property Awards 2018 celebrated at a drinks reception in London last week.

At the event, which was hosted by awards sponsor Irwin Mitchell at its Holborn office, guests had a chance to see the shortlists for the 20 categories in full, congratulate their peers and network over drinks and canapés.

There was a record number of entries for the awards this year, which was reflected in a packed room at the shortlist party.

This included a new category for 2018: the Irvine Sellar Award, which recognises an individual or company that has shaken up the market with a truly groundbreaking project or initiative.

Shortlisted for that category were:

  • The Collective’s scheme at Old Oak;
  • Bill Hughes of Legal & General Investment Management – Real Assets;
  • Sir George Iacobescu of Canary Wharf Group;
  • Mike Ingall of Allied London;
  • Sean Mulryan of Ballymore;
