Double win for GHA at the Civic Trust Awards

March 13, 2017

The 58th Annual Civic Trust Awards ceremony was held on Friday 10th March at The Guildhall Winchester. We are thrilled that both the STIHL Treetop Walkway and Wirral Met College came away triumphant.

The STIHL Treetop Walkway was among one of only 20 award winners and the project was also shortlisted for the Selwyn Goldsmith Award for Universal Design. The judges said that the walkway has successfully “opened up a previously less visited area of Westonbirt Arboretum to all visitors, regardless of age, size or ability, resulting in an increase in visitor numbers of almost 12,000 more in the first two months of opening.”

Wirral Met College was awarded a Commendation. The judges recognised the “successful collaboration between Peel, WMC and the design team enabling the students’ curriculum to be integrated with the design and construction of the project – helping to shape their careers and creating a bright future for Birkenhead’s docks.”

Congratulations to all the evening’s winners.
