The presentation of the Durham Environment Awards 2011 was held at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Durham in October. The County Durham Environment Partnership seeks to reward ‘great design, environmental guardianship and community spirit in County Durham’, by recognising those projects which help to make County Durham ‘altogether greener’ by working in partnership to make environmental improvements and drive sustainable development.
Best Craftsmanship! Countryside Consultants are very happy to announce that one of our projects - the consolidation of Three Historic Structures at Barforth, which has recently been completed by Heritage Consolidation Ltd, was given the award for Craftsmanship.
Not only that, the project went on to win the Outstanding Award which recognises ‘those schemes which go beyond exemplary status in their own category’ and ‘set an example of sustainable and environmentally friendly activity on a regional or national basis’.
