Solihull Editorial 15th Feb, 2024   0

TUDOR Grange has won the Birmingham and West Midlands Group of the Victorian Society annual conservation award, in recognition of their restoration of the Jacobethan house.

The Conservation Award, recognises an outstanding renovation or conservation project on a building that dates from between 1837-1914.

The winner was announced on Saturday February 10.

An illuminated certificate and a bronze disc recording the name of the winner and the year, for display, on or in the building, will be presented later.

Stephen Hartland, West Midlands Group of the Victorian Society Regional Chairman said: “That Tudor Grange has won the 2023 Conservation Award gives me a great deal of satisfaction.

“The Society was instrumental in getting the building listed back in 2008 and we were subsequently involved in discussions with Solihull MBC about conservation and development some five years ago.




“It is very pleasing that this dialogue and involvement has helped the owners navigate to this pleasing outcome.

“The project embodies all that the award seeks to recognise, preserving high-quality Victorian architecture, re-purposing it to modern-day needs and promoting the inherent sustainability of the repair and reuse of historic buildings.


“Well done to MACC Group for realising this project.”

Dr Naz Nathani, Director, MACC Group, said: “MACC Group are delighted to accept this prestigious award.

“It is a tribute to the enthusiasm and design skills of the Conservation Architects, PCPT, who worked up our ideas and to DC Construction and their team who have together saved what was a very damaged building.

“The work the Victorian Society put in over the years to highlight the plight of this building, so emblematic of wealthy Brummies building their ‘palaces’ in the suburbs, shows what a positive role the society can play.”
