The AJ Retrofit Awards, brought to you by The Architects’ Journal, celebrate the design expertise behind the vital renewal and repurposing of existing buildings, slashing the industry’s carbon footprint in the process. With a huge spend on upgrading housing, commercial and industrial buildings in prospect, retrofits will play a major role in the future of UK construction. The awards cover nine categories, including healthcare, housing, higher education and listed buildings.
At Shadbolt, we are very fortunate to have worked on the following 9 projects which have the honour of making the AJ Retrofit Awards 2021 shortlist. Congratulations to all of the projects and good luck for winning your categories on Wednesday 24th February.
