RSUA Award for Carrickfergus Castle

The project has been awarded RSUA Sustainability Award and RSUA Client of the Year Award 2021.
Judges said that the conservation architects, structural engineers, carpenters, and lead workers responsible ‘should be applauded’ for their work in this project to restore and protect the castle’s Great Keep. They mentioned that the work was completed in a sustainable way with low embodied carbon and little need for maintenance, while still incorporating historic detailing, traditional materials and a high level of craftsmanship and traditional skills.
The project will now be put forward for consideration for a RIBA UK-wide award.
