Ely Museum Selected as Regional Finalist for Civic Trust Award

We are delighted to share the news that Ely Museum has been selected as a Regional Finalist for both the 2023 Civic Trust Awards and the Selwyn Goldsmith Awards for Universal Design!  A huge congratulations to our architects, HAT Projects who redesigned and redeveloped Ely Museum during our National Lottery Heritage Fund redevelopment, 2019-2022

HAT Projects said;

“Civic Trust Awards are given to projects that make an outstanding contribution to the quality and appearance of the built environment. Award level schemes demonstrate excellence in architecture or design, whilst being sustainable, accessible and providing a positive civic contribution.

The Selwyn Goldsmith Awards are selected by a specially convened panel of universal design experts, seeking to celebrate environments or buildings that are responsive, flexible, welcoming, easy to use and occupy; allowing all to use with dignity and equality, aiming to promote and applaud “those schemes which have gone beyond the building regulations, putting people at the heart of the project and showing exemplar design.”

A thanks to all our collaborators on the project, and in particular Tom Lister at People Friendly Design who worked with us on the accessibility and universal design strategy.”

The final national level awards will be announced on 9th January.
