A Trio of design awards for Stewart Park

The successful restoration of Stewart Park in Middlesbrough has been recognised through a trio of architectural and design awards. The £8 million project, for Middlesbrough Council, led by Napper Architects with Southern Green Landscape Architects, has picked up the 'Building Conservation' Award at the RICS North East Renaissance Awards and the 'Heritage' Award at the Green Apple Awards which promote environmental best practice in the built environment. In addition , it has been 'Highly Commended' at the CENE Awards.

Napper Architects were responsible for the careful restoration of the Park's Grade II listed buildings to provide a new Visitor Centre along with a Community Educational Base, Vocational Training Centre and Cafeteria. The works involved the addition of a new glazed contemporary building with an exposed glulam structure, bringing the historic park into the 21st Century.

Liz Small, Project Director with Middlesbrough Council said: "Napper Architects have added consistent value to the end result. We are delighted with the expert restoration the recognition of its success through these awards, so much so that the project is now serving as an exemplar for historic restoration to other Local Authorities."

Napper secure final go-ahead for major retail expansion

Napper Architects have secured the final go-ahead for a multi-million pound expansion to their award winning Dalton Park in County Durham.

Following a recent High Court Judicial Review, the expansion project will now proceed under the planning permission granted by Durham Council in March last year with work commencing on detailed design and satisfying the planning conditions. It is anticipated that the construction will start on site within a year and take twelve months to complete.

Since opening in 2003, Dalton Park has become one of the region's top retail destinations with sales and visitor levels increasing year on year. The £35m project will complete the site's regeneration programme and will include a food store, cinema, restaurants, petrol station, hotel and pub all designed by Napper Architects and in accordance with their overall master-plan for the site.
