The Brewhouse and Trident Park projects win award at the UK Civic Trust Awards

The Brewhouse and Trident Park projects, designed by world renowned Ritchie*Architects, have won a “Highly Commended” award at the Civic Trust Awards in Manchester last Friday 22nd March, 2024.

The Civic Trust Awards is widely recognised within the industry as a mark of excellence for the architectural practice, the client, the developer, and all organisations involved in the projects development and delivery. Since 1959, more than 7,000 domestic and international projects have been recognised by the Civic Trust Awards. These range from small community projects to larger internationally recognised buildings, bridges, infrastructure, public realm, and public art. All schemes submitted for consideration are judged on their own merits and are subject to rigorous assessment.

This year, from over 320 entries, 69 projects were recognised, with submissions from across the UK, Canada, France, Germany, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, and USA, reflecting the awards’ continuing international reach.

The Brewhouse and Trident Park project won a HIGHLY COMMENDED award. This award acknowledges projects that have made a significant contribution to the quality and appearance of the built environment. Highly Commended schemes demonstrate a good standard of architecture or design, whilst being sustainable, accessible and provide a positive civic contribution.

“We are very proud and honoured to have received this prestigious UK award for architectural excellence, especially when one considers the outstanding quality of the projects submitted. We always hoped and aspired to make a positive impact on the built environment and surrounding community, and are therefore thrilled to have our efforts recognized and rewarded in this way,” said Mr Michael Farrugia, Deputy Chief Executive (Beverage Business) at Farsons Group.

Other winners in this category include Battersea Power Station in London and Narbo Via, Narbonne, France by Foster + Partners.

On The Brewhouse and Trident Park projects, the judge commented, “This is an excellent example of the transformation, reuse, and rebirth of an iconic and cultural heritage building.”
