A £68m project to restore a museum in Glasgow, Scotland, has taken home the biggest prize at this year’s British Construction Industry Awards.

The five-year renovation of the Burrell Collection was named Project of the Year at the BCIA ceremony in London recently

The project improved the environmental performance of the Category A-listed building without losing its original character.

“Working with a listed building, the team went to great lengths to preserve and enhance the existing building, reusing fabric where they could,” the judges said.

“It showcases the importance of working collaboratively with existing buildings to combat the climate crisis.”

The project was “an exemplar for the future of the industry, positively contributing to both the local community and our planet,” the BCIA judges added.

The Burrell Collection also took home the award for Cultural & Leisure Project of the Year
