Cornish Heritage Builders winners at 2012 Cornish Building Awards

Posted by: editor | May 14, 2012

Cornish Heritage Builders have recently been announced as one of three winners of the 2012 Cornish Building Awards. The Cornish Buildings Group founded its awards scheme 30 years ago to honour architects and builders who show great innovation and sensitivity in new designs or the conservation and restoration of the county's historic buildings.

As the standard of this year’s competition was extremely high, the judges selected three winners and Cornish Heritage Builders share the award for a refurbishment project at The Cottage, a 16th century house situated in the heart of Marazion, Cornwall. Our skilled building team removed all of the mid-20th Century additions and then undertook a restoration project using traditional materials and methods whilst incorporating current insulation processes. New plumbing, heating and electricity systems were also installed and this included an exterior air-source heat pump which now supplies all heating and hot water.

This is the second time that Cornish Heritage Builders have won this award after previously winning in 2001for a restoration project called The Canyack in Cot Valley, St Just.

Well done team for your continued standards of excellence and workmanship.
