The award is given for repairs to a specific element of a building, rather than for a general programme of works, and projects must have been completed within the previous 18 months.
Work of any scale is eligible but must be to the fabric of the building (e.g. tower, wall, roof, floor) or to a significant element of its furnishing (e.g. monument, screen, tomb, pew, pulpit). Cathedrals are not eligible.
Importantly, the award is always made to the building rather than to an individual, so this is a chance for a whole community to celebrate the quality of work completed in its building.
