ICI Awards Salute landmark Enniskillen Castle Museum project

Kriterion Conservation Architects, sister company to Hamilton Architects, have been awarded Tourism and Hospitality Project of the Year 2017 at the Irish Construction Industry Awards.

The winning project, Enniskillen Castle Museum, beat off stiff competition from Waterfront Hall Belfast to take top honours at a black tie ceremony in Dublin attended by 550 industry figures.

Partner Paul Millar said: “We are delighted to win this prestigious award which acknowledges the sterling work done on this historic landmark project. It was a challenging development, but we are truly proud of the result.”

Project Architect Mark Knight said: “This was a complex and difficult project, in that we were constrained in terms of what we could and could not do, dealing with multiple oversight agencies, limited budget and strict timelines. We are thrilled that ICI has recognised our achievement.”

The £2.32m Visitors Centre development transformed a myriad of historic buildings into a cohesive heritage Gateway to Co Fermanagh.

Four buildings within the complex were restored and refurbished to pool museum, tourism and genealogy resources and create new visitor spaces, while a fifth was demolished to create space for a new Visitors Centre & History Hub, Tourist Information Centre, Genealogy Centre, Castle Viewing area, Café and Shop.

Other Kriterion Conservation Architects projects include Crumlin Road Gaol Visitors Centre, Ulster Museum, Riddel Hall and Antrim Castle Gardens and Clotworthy House.
