We’re delighted to announce that the Castles and Coasts Head Office refurbishment project has been shortlisted for three categories at the North West Regional Construction Awards!

  1. Conservation & Regeneration Award sponsored by Morgan Sindall
  2. Sustainability Award sponsored by Place North West
  3. Cumbria Sub-Regional Project of the Year

Set in the heart of the historic quarter in Carlisle, this sympathetic refurbishment and extension of a grade II listed building has provided modernised open plan office spaces, meeting rooms, kitchens, washroom facilities and the addition of a steel framed atrium. Bringing a redundant former business information centre back to life with an entirely new interior and highly insulated external envelope that will help save over 5 tonnes of carbon emissions per year. With Listed Building Consent we were able to install a photovoltaic array of 34 roof mounted panels that will generate an estimated yield of 9660 kWh per annum. The interior spaces are designed to adapt to a more agile workforce with open seating arrangements and a series of meeting pods, bookable office spaces and a large new steel framed central atrium that will be used as a social hub for the entire building.

The shortlist is live on the website at the following link. The awards are due to take place Thursday 6 July 2023.
