RICS Heritage Award Winner
19 May 2022
We’re delighted to hear the Cliveden Conservatory Café has won the RICS Award in the South East Heritage Category. QODA provided the MEP services design for the Grade I listed building. The project faced many challenges due to the Listed status of the building and overheating. QODA produced a thermal comfort assessment, introduced automatic opening roof lights, external louvres, active cooling, and a one beam smoke detector to suit the building.
Judges’ comments – The project was notable for the team leader role, who is the youngest female building surveyor at the National Trust and demonstrates the Trusts commitment to diversity and inclusion, delivering a complex and challenging conservation project, adapting the building for the future, to be enjoyed by visitors to Cliveden for many years to come.
