Judges Comments

“The project catalysed the decarbonisation of a difficult Grade 1 listed area of the college, creating an expertly engineered roof that enhances acoustics, is visually striking and has low embodied carbon, The well-integrated heat pump and heat recovery ventilation inserted into difficult spaces (new and Grade 1) minimising clutter for both and provide an uplifting and inviting series of communal spaces.”
