  • 1. MOORGATE CROFTS, ROTHERHAM

    Moorgate Crofts is as much a statement of good intent as anything else; built as astarting point for the town centre renaissance and setting new sustainability standards.Natural light is a feature both internally and externally, and the use of ground-sourceheat pumps make the site not only carbon neutral, but heating, cooling and hot waterdemand operate at up to 400% efficiency.

  • 2. ALEXANDER SCOTTS HOSPITAL,HUNTLY, ABERDEENSHIREThis project became something of acanvas for a whole range oftraditional crafts and skills nurturedby a unique in-house trainingscheme that improves thesustainable prospects of ourarchitectural heritage. High quality repair andrenovation wasessential to do justiceto a building thathas served its localpopulation for over150 years.

  • 3. CRESWELL SOCIAL CENTRE, WORKSOP

    The centre has also served as a drill hall and, during the First World War, as a military hospital. Refurbishment work in the 70s was ill-advised, but the building is now

    back to its former glory as a result of restoring the original faade with

    appropriate materials and skills.

  • 4. THE NELSON MONUMENT,GREAT YARMOUTH

    Nelson left his mark in many ways, andeven now is having an impact. In thewake of the Battle of Trafalgarbicentenary celebrations, there aremoves to regenerate the area aroundthis monument. Interest was arousedwhen it was restored to mark the bicentenary.

  • 5. ST MARTINS GATE, BIRMINGHAM

    This un-loved building was given a new lease of life as theresult of a mixed-use conversion scheme. The run-down 1970s

    office block has been given an impressive make-over toprovide 16 one-bedroom apartments, 36 two-bedroom

    apartments and 20,000 square feet of attractive retail space.

  • 6. ROUNDHAY PARK, LEEDS

    Hundreds of years ago it was a private hunting park, but it was grantedto the De Lacy family by William the Conqueror in recognition of their

    support on the battlefields. Time has taken its toll since then, but councilownership and great affection among the local communities has ensured

    that it has been sympathetically restored and refurbished.
