Greenbank Hall wins Chester Civic Trust Award
The refurbishment of Greenbank Hall in Handbridge, Chester has been awarded a Civic Trust Award by Chester Civic Trust in the 2017 list. Mel Morris Conservation acted as conservation consultant to the project, preparing a detailed analysis of the development of the building and its setting, which informed its repair, and a Conservation Management Plan in 2015. Judges were particularly impressed with the houses built on the site, designed by Owen Ellis Architects, which were said to be 'excellent examples' of modern high quality design and construction. A sensitive solution to providing new development within the setting of a major Georgian mansion.
