Highly commended in RICS grand final building conservation category
Cardigan Castle has been highly commended in prestigious national award.
The restoration work at the castle was singled out in the Building Conservation category at the RICS awards grand final in a glittering ceremony at London’s Hilton Hotel.
Architects Purcell along with Cadwgan company secretary Joff Timms were there to receive the award.
The overall winner of the final was the £1bn development scheme at Birmingham New Street Station.
Cardigan Castle was one of 90 schemes throughout the UK to be selected to go through to the grand final and one of 12 to be selected for the building conservation category.
Mr Timms said: “The line up of projects was very impressive and the castle was up there with some very prestigious schemes. This reflects UK wide recognition of the outstanding achievement of the project and the high quality of the professional input and workmanship.”
As an added bonus the retiring chair of judges was presented with a picture of himself sat on the castle’s giant eisteddfod chair.
