Hylton Castle National Award5th February 2021

Following The Hylton Castle Project win of the regional Conservation and Regeneration Award at the Constructing Excellence North East Awards last year, it was eligible to go forward to the national awards held this January 2022.

And wouldn’t you know it- it won! So the project has won not just the regional CE award but the National Award as well and we couldn’t be more delighted for all of the team.

We are very grateful to Constructing Excellence, the Judges and headline sponsor Swegon, for this award.

The award acknowledges the long term vision, partnerships and talent of The Friends of Hylton Castle; The lasting partnerships created by Sunderland City Council, The National Lottery Heritage Fund, The Garfield and Wolfson Foundations, English Heritage and Historic England; and dedicated team of talented and enthusiastic consultants, contractors and volunteers.
Together we have all played our part in not only successfully delivering a multimillion pound rescue, of a nationally important heritage asset, in our region, for its people but also shown the country what we can achieve in the North East.

I would like to congratulate you on winning the Conservation & Regeneration Award at last week’s Constructing Excellence Awards. It is an excellent achievement and we very much look forward to working with you to share the excellent learning outcomes widely across the industry.  As one of our chairs said last week, the quality of the entries and winners to these awards demonstrates just how much the construction industry is progressing and you and your team are very much at the forefront of that.

Head of Constructing Excellence
