Memorial Hall project wins structural award

Memorial Hall, Manchester
Best Medium Project, North West Structural Awards, 2013

On Friday 27 September 2013 Thomasons attended the Institution of Structural Engineers North West Structural Awards and collected the award for best Medium Project for the works to Memorial Hall in Albert Square, Manchester, now the Albert Square Chop House.

For further details of our competition entry and to see our award certificate see the case studies tab above.

The Memorial Hall is architecturally one of the most important buildings of its type, according to English Heritage. It had lain derelict for a decade and it was very important to me to restore the building and bring it back to life. The magnificent new space created by Thomasons is testament to their engineering skill and the project took less than six months, from demolition to completion; I am delighted with the result.
