National Trust ACT Heritage Awards 2014

This year is the first time the National Trust of Australia (ACT) has conducted an awards program to recognise projects in the ACT that make an outstanding or significant contribution to the conservation of the built, indigenous and natural environment in accordance with the principles set out in the Burra Charter.

The Cleaning and Restoration of the Telopea Park School Artwork was selected to receive an award for a Significant Contribution to Heritage Conservation.

Conservation treatment work by Art and Archival, with historical research by Esther V. Davies.

Congratulations everyone!

The criteria for nomination was intentionally designed to encourage a wide variety of entries: large and small, restoration and adaptive reuse; tangible and intangible built; indigenous and natural; reports and community projects. This intention was realised as twelve projects were nominated across the entire spectrum of heritage conservation activities.

  • Canberra Centenary Trail Interpretation Services
  • Conservation of the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House Members Dining Room
  • a number of Conservation/Heritage Management Plans
  • Telopea Park Artwork Conservation
  • Blundell’s Cottage Heritage Landscape Masterplan
  • house extensions in Griffith
  • a book on Centenary of Engineering
  • upgrade of the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House heating system
  • Yarralumla Nursery Heritage Exhibition
  • Kings Park Amenity Adaptive Reuse. 

Three of the nominated projects included work done by AICCM members.
