Fareham buildings receive design awards

Fareham Borough Council has received two awards following The Fareham Society's annual Design Awards last night.

Judges were impressed with the recent repairs and restoration of the chapel steeple at Fareham Town Cemetery on Wickham Road. The steeple, which sits at the main gateway overlooking the cemetery, was awarded with 'Highly Commended' in the Restoration category.

The Innovation Centre was also awarded with 'Highly Commended' in the New Build Non-Residential category, thanks to its clean lines and excellent layout, providing specialist workshops for businesses.

Executive Leader of Fareham Borough Council, Cllr Seán Woodward, collected the awards on behalf of the council. He said: "The much needed restoration of the steeple on the Grade II listed building was carefully undertaken in keeping with the original architectural style. I'm pleased that the hard work put into the project has been recognised.

"The Innovation Centre reached full occupancy within its first year which proves that it is an attractive place to work. The building is going from strength to strength, receiving a string of awards over the past couple of years."

The Fareham Society holds the Design Awards every year and 2016 marks the 40th anniversary of the scheme. The aim is to stimulate public interest in architecture and to encourage good design in the built environment.

CEMAST also received the 'Design' award in the 'New build non-residential' category.
