A team including QMAC Construction, APEX Housing Association, Foyle Women’s Aid and Tate Stevenson has won a prestigious building award.
The team picked up the “Excellence in Partnering” award at the CEF/Specify Construction Excellence Awards 2013.
The winning project involved the restoration of a stone stable block and conversion to twelve self-contained apartments at Ashleywood House in Derry for APEX Housing Association.
The building will be used and managed by Foyle Women’s Aid.
Colin McCaffrey, Project Architect with Tate Stevenson, said: “Heritage works is extremely complex and QMAC were extremely impressive in the way that they managed this project. They worked extremely closely with APEX Housing Association and Foyle Women’s Aid throughout and delivered a quality standard which was well beyond our expectation. Their experience, expertise and commitment to partnering from the whole team was obvious on this project.”
Marie Brown, Director of Foyle Women’s Aid, said: “Ashleywood House will serve the people of this area for many years and this award recognises the effort put in by everyone in getting it completed.”
