Hauxley building honoured with prestigious award

Northumberland Wildlife Trust

24 April 2018

Northumberland Wildlife Trust is delighted to announce that its new Hauxley Wildlife Discovery Centre has won first prize in the Community Category of the annual Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) 2018 Awards, North East that saw over 55 of the North East’s most impressive and community beneficial property schemes battling it out for top honours.

The panel of RICS judges felt that the facility, built on a site of a former open cast mine on Druridge Bay, is an exceptional asset to the region and praised the project team, Brightblue Studio and Northumberland Wildlife Trust for creating what is arguably one of the North East’s greenest buildings, which people of all ages to enjoy.

Beating off very stiff competition, the Award is a fabulous acknowledgement of the hard work that went into project from all those involved, but especially the dedicated and hardworking team of building volunteers who clocked up over 23,000 hours on the project, and who helped make the wildlife charity’s dream a reality.

The Award also recognises the wonderful financial support the project received from National Lottery Players through the Heritage Lottery Fund, charitable trusts, legacies, corporate supporters, local companies and public donations.
