Shire Hall is Building Project of the Year

It went from ugly to innovative and now Gloucestershire County Council's headquarters, Shire Hall in Gloucester, has been named Building Project of the Year at the Constructing Excellence South West (CESW) awards.

The transformation of Shire Hall was a partnership between Quattro Design Architects, Kier, Adams Fletcher & Partners and the county council.

The project also picked up two more CESW awards - Integration and Collaborative Working award and the Value award.

The Shire Hall project included fitting energy efficient windows and cladding, as well as energy generating solar panels on the roof, with the aim of significantly reducing the council's energy use and carbon footprint.

The ambitious project took over two years to complete.
