The SPAB presents a range of annual awards celebrating outstanding achievement in aspects of the care and repair of old buildings. We look to the future too, encouraging good new design in the context of built heritage. Our aim is to recognise and showcase projects that exemplify the careful, thoughtful approach to conservation advocated by the Society. Here you can find out more about the awards, eligibility and closing dates for entries, and see past winners.
