Last night we attended the 59th Annual Civic Trust Awards Ceremony, where together with Pringle Richards Sharratt, we were presented with an AABC Conservation Commendation for our work at Poplar Baths. This award commendation is for projects which demonstrate the highest standards of historic building conservation and make a significant contribution to the quality and appearance of the built environment.
The 59th Annual Civic Trust Awards Ceremony
The event was held on Friday 9th March at Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United Football Club.
From 234 applications, 60 national and international projects were rewarded with a Civic Trust Award or Commendation, which included the AABC Conservation category.
One of UKs most important and prestigious awards
Since it was founded in 1959, the aim of the Civic Trust Awards is to encourage the very best in architecture, to improve the built environment through design, sustainability, inclusiveness and accessibility and also to reward projects that offer a positive social, cultural, environmental or economic benefit to their local communities. The Civic Trust Awards has run continuously ever since 1959, making it Europe’s longest running architectural and built environment awards programme.
Entries were received primarily from the UK but also from Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Hungary, Kazakhstan, South Africa, and the USA, reflecting the awards’ broad geographic reach.
