Refurbishment of the Year Winner

Cardiff University School of Healthcare Sciences

ebw

A fantastic example achieving complete transformation of buildings once considered for demolition, on a tight programme, and massively exceeding client expectations on the quality of space. Determination to redevelop rather than demolish and re-build was driven by the teams collective sustainability agenda, along with bettering programme and cost in comparison.

Judges Comments:

The judges found this to be a highly impressive entry, particularly because the post-war military hospital was in poor condition and has been completely transformed into a modern, transformational learning space. The improvement of the building's thermal and energy performance was also considered in awarding the score.

Winner: Merthyr Tydfill County Borough Council

Client of the Year Winner

Merthyr Tydfill County Borough Council

ebw

This pathfinder project for MTCBC will create the first net zero carbon in operation school in Wales.  This would not have been possible without the commitment and pioneering spirit of the client who was determined to create a scheme that positively contributes to the Welsh Governments net zero carbon targets.

Judges Comments:

The judges were impressed with the forward-thinking nature of the client, with them supplying a private wire arrangement with a local hospital, so the excess electricity positively impacts the wider community. There is a clear passion to ensure that buildings in the authority contribute to the Welsh Governments Net Carbon Zero targets.
