We are delighted to announce that our work on the Tottenham War Memorial was highly commended in the Building Conservation section at the 2017 RICS Awards. The awards took place on Wednesday 24th May 2017 at The Marriott, Grosvenor Square, London.
The restoration of Tottenham War Memorial was part of a wider regeneration project in the area by Haringey Council. The award was presented on stage to Paul Latham, director of The Regeneration Practice.
Representing the War Memorials Trust at the event, Conservation Officer, Chris Reynolds said “The War Memorials Trust is delighted that Tottenham war memorial was Highly Commended at the 2017 RICS Awards. War memorials are significant as each memorial is a reflection of how a community chose to remember those who were affected by conflict. Their conservation and repair is incredibly important to allow these structures to continue to be the focal point for remembrance in local communities.”
He added “The project had a lot of challenges as a result of previous inappropriate works which were causing damage to the metalwork. However, by working with all those involved we were able to ensure all works followed best conservation practice. It was a privilege to work with Hall Conservation, Haringey Council and The Regeneration Practice on such a focal point of the local community and it is gratifying to see Tottenham war memorial in a good condition.”
The team at Hall Conservation are extremely proud of the project’s placing in the awards. Thanks and congratulations to all the other nominees and award winners.
