Congratulations to our Winner
Winner | National Trust
The Trust has rebounded from a pandemic low in portfolio delivery to an all-time high £285m (+140%) in 2 years, with dedicated professionals securing benefits for nature, beauty and history, supported by a new Centre of Excellence started with just 2 staff in 2021. Remarkable considering the profession lost 50%+ staff in 2020.
Highlights include: revitalised historic places (winning awards for Seaton’s Curtain Rises; and Sudbury Hall’s Childrens Country House); transformed access to green space, through Castlefield Viaduct sky garden; and Future Parks Accelerator partnership; revived our environment through Riverlands / Renewable Energy Programmes; and landing a complex CRM Platform.
Finalist | Chester Zoo
The Square at Chester Zoo is a new conference and wedding event space created within one of the UK largest visitor attractions. Refurbishing the original stable building and adding a new atrium extension we have created a beautiful setting right in the heart of our 92 year old zoo.
The original structures were once home to some of the zoo’s first animals including lions, bears and chimpanzees. Now offering a large open plan venue as well as a set of unique smaller meeting spaces, the Grade II listed building has been sustainably renovated into a timeless space where old meets new.
