The Guildhall wins Commercial Development of The Year Award

‘While up against some truly impressive competition in this category, judges believed The Guildhall project was a deserving winner for the way in which a landmark Yorkshire building has been given a new lease of life that will provide it with an exciting future for generations to come’

We’re absolutely delighted to announce that The Guildhall won ‘Commercial Development of The Year’ at the Yorkshire Post Excellence in Business Awards. With sustainability, economic growth and public good at its heart, this development project showcases York’s historic architecture alongside its innovative modernistic refurbishment, creating an economic hub for businesses in our city.





The Guildhall York’s ambitious and successful redevelopment was completed in April. This was a ‘once in a 100 years’ restoration project; transforming one of York’s most prestigious and historically significant buildings, preparing it for long-term, economically viable and sustainable use. The project had to overcome huge logistical and engineering challenges, along with a global pandemic. More than 1,000 deliveries for the project were made by river while 40 tonnes of CO2 will be saved each year through the installation of a River Water Source Heat Pump.

NOMINATED: Chameleon Business Interiors’ transformation of McCain Foods; Evri Superhub; The Old Sawmill; Thorpe Park Leeds.
