We are thrilled to announce that our project ‘Birkenhead Priory’ was the winner of the prestigious North West RICS Awards 2017 in the Conservation category. This award honours excellent work in ‘the conservation of a building or structure’ and we are extremely proud that this project has granted the recognition it deserves.
We are now looking forward to following this project to the National RICS awards taking place in London later in the year.
As the oldest standing building on Merseyside, the Priory offers a unique insight into the town of Birkenhead and its historical and spiritual importance to the development of Wirral. Now surrounded by factories and shipyards, the Priory is an oasis of calm in a busy world. The site had gone through a long period of decline and the project has restored the buildings on the site and improved visitor facilities, including access, parking, the undercroft museum and St Mary’s tower.
