Another award-winning year for Cliveden Conservation

15th December 2017

We have been recognised by two major awards in 2017. The Oxford Preservation Trust Awards and The Georgian Group Architectural Awards acknowledged our role within several of the winning projects.

The Oxford Preservation Trust was the first ceremony to take place and Cliveden Conservation were listed for their contribution to the restoration of Corpus Christi Chapel which was awarded a winning plaque within the Building Conservation category. Cliveden Conservation was appointed by Kingerlee Ltd (Principal contractor) and Gray Baynes + Shew (Architects) to carry out specialist conservation work for this project.

The restoration of Jesus College Dining Hall was also given a winning plaque within the Building Conservation category at the awards. Having worked on this project to repair decorative features, consolidate the plaster ceiling and carry out the redecoration of the hall, our conservation team were very proud to have been a part of this prestigious project for Jesus College.

At the Georgian Group Architectural Awards we accompanied our client Stowe House Preservation Trust to receive another award. The creation of the Stowe Gothic Cross was highly commended within the Georgian Object category. The award highlighted the wide range of skills, technologies and disciplines used by Cliveden Conservation to successfully recreate the Gothic Cross from virtually nothing and how the Coade Stone recipe was mastered to rebuild the Gothic Cross.

At the awards we gave a big applaud to National Trust Northern Ireland as Mount Stewart was highly commended within the Restoration of Georgian Interior category. It was a honoured to be mentioned within this award summary for its conservation, cleaning and repair of the Central Hall stone floor.
