Corbel Conservation Ltd takes British Woodworking Federation’s Heritage Project of the Year Award

Corbel Conservation Ltd, based in Taunton, has won the British Woodworking Federation’s (BWF) Heritage Project of the Year Award.

Sponsored by Remmers, the BWF’s Heritage Project of the Year Award is now in its second year and recognises excellence in a conservation, restoration or renovation application.
The award was won in recognition of Corbel’s complex repair and consolidation project at Toneworks, an industrial textile mill in Wellington, Somerset, which the judges praised as a “high quality and complex restoration project carried out in challenging conditions.”
Timothy Hayes, Joinery & Contracts Manager at Corbel Conservation Ltd, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to receive the Heritage Project of the Year Award this year. Our work in repairing and consolidating Toneworks was a fulfilling and unique project and we are delighted that the judges recognised the skill of the team needed to undertake such a complex project.”

Helen Hewitt, Chief Executive of the BWF, commented:
“Heritage projects require specialist skills and knowledge, and this award strives to celebrate the very best achievements and projects in this unique space. Being the second year that this award has run, it has been amazing to see the number of high-quality entries that have come through.

“Our sector has overcome a great deal this year, with supply chain interruption as well as the increase in energy costs and the continued skills shortage, and the BWF Awards are a welcome opportunity to showcase the skill and technical expertise in our sector.”
The prize was presented at a celebratory awards evening at The Langham, London Hotel.
