St Albans Museum + Gallery has been shortlisted for two Hertfordshire Building Futures Awards.
The newly-revamped building, which opened in June after a massive £7.75 million restoration project, is listed alongside St Albans Cathedral in the Project of the Year category, as well as featuring on the Retrofit for the Future shortlist.
A total of 12 developments across Hertfordshire have been shortlisted for the awards, which recognise and celebrate exceptional buildings and sustainable developments within the county.
The Deerings, an ultra-low-energy home in Harpenden, also scored two nominations, appearing in the Design Excellence and Most Sustainable Construction categories.
Jon Rowland, from the judging panel, said: ”Hertfordshire is one of the few counties to reward good design and is therefore to be congratulated.

“This year we, the judges, were struck by the high quality of submissions. They are all different in character and scale; but they show that with good design teams a better quality of development can be achieved that is robust, functional and beautiful. Something we should all aim for.”
The awards ceremony will take place on October 4.
