Bridge Spire Commended in Devon Historic Building Trust Awards
— 24 Oct 2017
Jonathan Rhind Architects is pleased to announce that we received a commendation, coming runners up in the Building Conservation Awards 2017.
Run by the Devon Historic Building Trust, our work on the Bridge Trust Spire in Barnstaple was judged in the ‘repairs of a historic building or structure’ category.
The striking Grade II listed 19th Century building owned by the charitable Trust sits on the banks of the river Taw, providing commercial space for small and medium sized businesses.
Darryn Marrs, project technician said: “It is a real honour to have been commended in the awards and we’re extremely proud to have been recognised for this project.
“Our recent work on Bridge Chambers focussed on the spire which had numerous structural and historic detailing issues and a strategic assessment of repair solutions was needed to protect the spire for the future.
“Bridge Chambers sits amongst a host of stunning historical buildings in Barnstaple, which made it even more important to protect the original features of the spire, preserving the historic built landscape recognisable in the town.”
The aim of the awards is to acknowledge best conservation practice and good design.
The award ceremony took place on Thursday 19th October 2017 at Ugbrooke House, Chudleigh, Devon. We’d like to extend our congratulations to all those shortlisted and who received awards on the evening.
