RIBA South Award for Treadgolds

We are thrilled for Pritchard Architecture and the whole Treadgolds project team which now adds a RIBA South Award to its impressive list of awards.

MEA were very proud to have provided Quantity Surveying services to the Treadgolds project, which was previously a historic ironmongers and has now been repurposed as a community centre. In addition to the RIBA South Award the project has also won the Small Project of the Year Award at the SPACES Awards and made the shortlist for some very prestigious awards including the RIBAJ MacEwan Awards and the AJ Small Projects Awards.

Treadgolds is an ongoing tale of urban decline and resurrection, giving new life to spaces behind the Victorian shopfronts of an ironmonger that closed in 1988. The first phase of a step-by-step community-led renewal created a courtyard garden, and the second has seen the low-budget renovation of a warehouse to provide a hall for events.

The listed structure was a time capsule, with tools left in place. They have been preserved along with the character and texture of the restored historic fabric, with raw brick walls left uncleaned. Retention of original character is the project’s most significant achievement. Distinct interventions include robust timber-framed glazed screens looking into a disused workshop where it is hoped that the architect can continue to do so much with so little.
