Our judging panel found shortlisting and deciding upon the eight category winners particularly tough, not to mention which entry would take home the accolade of Project of the Year 2018, South West. Congratulations to Aerospace Bristol who took home this year’s award. Thanks must go to the judges for taking time out of their busy schedule to visit and assess each project to find our worthy winners. A big thank you also to all our sponsors who made the ceremony such a wonderful occasion.

Bristol Aero Collection Trust/ Aerospace Bristol Purcell UK

Aerospace Bristol is a project born from several priorities, including the need to balance operator requirements with those of visitors, to identify and harness funding and revenue whilst generating opportunities, and to provide an integrated approach to interpretative and architectural design. Accessibility and understanding were key to the creation of a new cultural destination with no established mode of operation or audience. As such, while appealing to the interests of an extremely strong local community in the South West and an international following,

ilding as anor excellent structure example or a group of best of buildings practice or bystructures professionals andworking covers in it was also essential to capitalise on commercial opportunities. The museum takes a visitor on an immersive journey from the beginnings of the British and Colonial Aeroplane Company in 1910 all the way through to the modern day, where the next generation of engineers continue to push aerospace technology to new heights. The architectural project combines a new hangar for Concorde Alpha Foxtrot, alongside a grade II listed WW1 aircraft hangar home to much of the other Bristol Aero Collection including aeroplanes, helicopters, missiles and more. The conversion of Hangar 16S maintained the prominence of the structure’s brick piers and timber Belfast trusses, which continue to command the building’s three 24m-wide internal bays. The southern-most bay contains key arrival and departure spaces providing orientation between ticketing and retail space. From here visitors can gain access across the tarmac to the Concorde’s new matt black hangar. The form and articulation of the new Concorde building was influenced by an approach to efficiency, seeking to minimise the built volume accentuating the profile of the plane while not competing with its iconic form and an interpretation that set out to offer the best access and vantage points for visitors. The project has successfully met and exceeded its objectives with visitor numbers since opening in mid-October 2017. In addition, the client group gained a new home for the iconic aircraft, for future generations to admire and appreciate.

Lloyd Burnell, Executive Director of Aerospace Bristol, said “Aerospace Bristol offers something for everyone: Concorde, as always, has the power to amaze and looks just stunning in her new home; we have created a first-class exhibition to tell the story of Bristol’s aerospace achievements from 1910 to the modern day.” The scheme is the first of its type in the area, adding to Bristol’s history and expansion as a manufacturing pioneer. This has sparked discussions regarding an alternative Filton site for the Bristol arena in a bid to bring further tourism, utilising the Brabazon hangar just across the runway from the museum. The innovative design of the Concorde hangar allows a free open space under and around the aircraft creating a new city venue with a maximum capacity of 1200 people. The hangar hosted an extensive array of events such as weddings and sporting parties even prior to the public opening, followed by the inaugural dinner, attended by the museums patron, HRH Princess Royal. The social events are great for publicity while allowing the client to generate necessary revenue for sustainable museum upkeep and future projects. The new building sits proudly on a mini-airfield. The patina of the airfield past has not been wiped clear but instead celebrated; with a new tarmacked and painted link between the historic hangar. The site is surrounded by a myriad of housing development and an abandoned

stark airfield, due to be redeveloped. The Concorde hangar is an insular building allowing the site to exist in isolation until the neighbouring airfield is developed and can then reconnect into the museum site. The Bristol community have all been extremely engaged during the projects construction. The local connection and sense of ownership for Concorde Alpha Foxtrot is strong; with an array of support and admiration. With journalists eager to catch a glimpse of the Concorde move; the news of her new home spread on an international scale. Visitors from a variety of countries have been referencing the museum across all social media platforms with reviews speaking positively about how much it has to offer. The £19 million museum received a sizeable HLF grant of £4.7million along with large donations from commercial partners including Airbus, Rolls Royce, South Gloucestershire, Bristol city council and others. The HLF are very proud of their involvement with the project displayed on their homepage. Nerys Watts, Head of HLF South West, said: “From First World War fighter planes to the ground-breaking Concorde, British aviation was born and bred at Filton Airfield and thanks to National Lottery players, Aerospace Bristol is an incredible gateway to that heritage. We’ve been delighted to support this project and all the wonderful team and volunteers who have made it possible – we look forward to Aerospace Bristol’s continuing success.”

The judges said Aerospace Bristol houses a nationally important collection charting the Bristol Aerospace industry from its humble beginnings in 1910 to the modern day and beyond. It creates a base for learning for everyone and cannot fail to inspire the next generation of engineers. The judges were particularly impressed with the use of an historic Grade II Listed hanger brilliantly blended with the state of the art and culminating in the stunning last flying Concorde. 25
