Multiple Conservation Wins at the Civic Trust Awards
March 11, 2016
Winners for the prestigious Civic Trust Awards were revealed at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre last Friday, with two wins for Donald Insall Associates: the restoration of the Grade II listed Scheduled Ancient Monument Lion Salt Works was named winner of the AABC Conservation Category, and a Commendation for the conservation and re-opening Wimpole Gothic Tower.
The Civic Trust Awards is the longest standing built environment awards scheme in Europe and is given to projects that demonstrate high quality architecture or design, have demonstrated sustainability, are accessible to all users and have made a positive cultural, social or economic contribution to the local community.
Tony Barton, Chairman of Donald Insall Associates, said: “I am delighted that the Lion Salt Works Museum continues to get the recognition that it deserves. On a lot of levels, this was a complicated project but it was a challenge that our team in Chester, led by Simon Malam, rose to magnificently. Everyone at Donald Insall is extremely proud to have been part of saving a unique part of Cheshire’s history for future generations and creating one of the UK’s leading industrial heritage museums.”
