Heritage Retention Award:

Winner – Ironside House

Entrant: H&H Developments

Judge Citation: The restoration of Ironside House has not just brought a prominent heritage building back to life but has been done to ensure long term sustainability as well as reinstating the heritage features of the house.

The Judges’ congratulate the owners for sensitively bringing a severely damaged building back to full use and achieving 100 percent of the new building code. This project involved carefully moving the building backwards off its original site (after removal of damaged materials) and moving it back again after constructing 200 piles driven to 7 metres and installing a 100mm concrete subfloor as well as new bearers and bracing. The work achieved on Ironside House shows that with care, innovation and determination heritage buildings can be rehabilitated and strengthened to be enjoyed long into the future.
