The Civic Trust Awards was established in 1959 to recognise and reward the best projects in the built environment. From architecture to planning, hospitals to housing, public realm to public art, the Awards scheme acknowledges the built environment in its wider context and holds a firm belief that development should be for the benefit of the people it serves.
The aim of the Civic Trust Awards is to encourage the very best in architecture and design, to improve the built environment for us all through design, sustainability, inclusiveness and accessibility, but also to reward projects that offer a positive cultural, social, economic or environmental benefit to their local communities.

All applications to the Civic Trust Awards are also eligible to considered for the Selwyn Goldsmith Award for Universal Design - CLICK HERE for more details.

What is eligible for the AABC Conservation Awards?
The Civic Trust AABC Conservation Awards scheme is specifically targeted and tailored to historic building conservation projects, but still retains the 360 degree nature of the Civic Trust Awards assessment process. Supported and judged by the Register of Architects Accredited in Building Conservation (AABC) entries must demonstrate this broad range of conservation skills. Previous winners have included Kings Cross Station (London), Wentworth Castle Glasshouses (Barnsley, Yorkshire) and Chichester Festival Theatre (South East).
