A second award for sustainability has been given to the builders of St Albans Museum + Gallery on behalf of the Queen
Her Majesty's representative for Hertfordshire, the Lord-Lieutenant Robert Voss CBE, gave a Queen's Award for Enterprise for sustainable development to the builders who delivered the city's new museum.
The building company - Willmott Dixon - has been praised for reducing the environmental impact of its own activities and those of its supply chain.
District councillor Annie Brewster, who led the £7.75m museum project was invited to the ceremony.
She said: "It is a sensational honour to be awarded a Queen's Award for Enterprise but to be awarded one in 2014 and another one now is absolutely incredible.
