The Hardman Group is honoured to have received Newfoundland & Labrador Historic Trust’s Southcott Award presented to us in recognition of our MIX project in the category of Adaptive Reuse. The Southcott Awards are named for one of Newfoundland’s most important nineteenth century building firms, J & J.T. Southcott. J.T’s architect son, John Thomas Southcott (1853 – 1939) made his mark with the Second Empire style of the Southcott properties at Park Place on Rennie’s Mill Road in St. John’s. This “Southcott style” was prominent in the rebuilding that followed the great fire of 1892, and spread throughout the colony.
The Newfoundland and Labrador Historic Trust established the Southcott Awards program in 1984. Nominations are considered in six categories: Heritage Restoration, Heritage Tradesperson, Adaptive Reuse, Design in Context, Heritage Stewardship and Lifetime Achievement. The awards comment the work of passionate individuals, businesses, families and community groups who work to preserve Newfoundland & Labrador’s built heritage.
We are very appreciative of this award and would also like to extend a congratulations to our fellow recipients of the 2018 award.
