Peak Architects has been short-listed for the prestigious RICS Awards in the Building Conservation category, for its Stickyard project on the Chatsworth Estate. The Stickyard is the conversion of an 18th century cart shed to provide an outdoor education centre for the Devonshire Educational Trust.
Peak Architects’ director Paul Holden comments: “We are thrilled that in the space of a couple weeks Peak Architects have been short-listed for both the RICS Awards and BD Small Architectural Practice of the Year Awards.”
Peak Architects are delighted that their conversion of a 1950’s bungalow in Hope has been shortlisted for the Chartered Institute of Builders (CIOB) Constructing Excellence Award in the environmental category. The project was completed in October 2015 by Carmody Construction and integrates an over insulated render cladding; triple glazing and whole house ventilation; renewable energy was provided by a 4Kw array of photo-voltaic cells at roof level.
The project sets a precedent for sustainable design in the Peak Park.
