Institution of Structural Engineers Award GCA ‘Best Conservation Project’

GCA Consulting were awarded ‘Best Construction Project’ in the 2020 IStructE East Midlands Awards, by the Institution of Structural Engineers, for Wirksworth Heritage Centre, a £2m conversion of a listed building into a local history museum.

The project required creative solutions to a range of challenges, from the preservation of a 300 year old timber floor, to the complete removal of key structural walls to create an open-plan museum space.

GCA worked closely with the design team, led by Latham Architects, to complete the project.
