Blackpool Council Offices has won a 2015 Civic Trust Award.
The Civic Trust Awards scheme was established in 1959 to recognise the very best in architecture, design, planning, landscape and public art. Awards are given to projects that demonstrate high quality architecture or design, have demonstrated sustainability, are accessible to all users and have made a positive cultural, social or economic contribution to the local community.
The awarding body said the following about this landmark scheme:
"The scheme has been very well handled in all architectural aspects and provides excellent space for its occupants. The design goes to extreme lengths to make the building accessible for its users and employees and represents a modern office building, whilst incorporating visual themes that tie back to the heritage of Blackpool without being a pastiche."
