A recently completed heritage scheme at Tatton Park in Cheshire, which Focus Consultants helped to project manage, has been named as a finalist in three categories of the North West Regional Construction Awards 2018.
Tatton Dale Farm was shortlisted in the Preservation and Rejuvenation Award, as well as the Cheshire Project of the Year Award and the overall Building Project of the Year Award.
The project tells the story of food production for a large country estate from the late 18th century to the 1950s, and has brought alive the agricultural, architectural, technological, social and cultural heritage of Tatton Dale Farm through the ‘field to fork’ story – told through the mouths of former workers, its buildings, machinery, livestock and traditional agricultural skills.
It also includes a new visitor hub at the farm’s agricultural mill building, as well as a number of site-wide hands-on experiences.
Focus was appointed to project manage the overall development alongside Cheshire East Council, which manages Tatton Park on behalf of the National Trust.
The North West Regional Construction Awards 2018 are hosted by the School of the Built Environment at the University of Salford, Constructing Excellence North West and the Centre for Construction Innovation. Winners will be announced at a Gala Dinner on Friday 6th July in Manchester.
