Oxford Preservation Trust honours University buildings

Several University buildings won accolades at the annual awards ceremony of the Oxford Preservation Trust (OPT) on 1 November.

The Blavatnik School of Government was awarded a plaque – the highest honour the OPT bestows – in the New Buildings category. The plaque will be displayed around the building in due course.

The Ruskin School of Art on Bullingdon Road gained a certificate in the same category, while the former Radcliffe Infirmary Outpatients Building – now home to the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences (NDPCHS) – and St Luke’s Chapel, both in the ROQ, scooped certificates in the Building Conservation category. The renovation of the Ashmolean Museum’s 19th century art galleries, meanwhile, won a certificate in the Small Projects category.

The OPT awards are now in their 30th year and celebrate the best buildings across the city.
