Recognition for our Dr Moir!

The Royal Institute of British Architecture (RIBA) award honorary fellowships each year to non-architects who have made a significant contribution to architecture but who are not architects. This includes people who have helped improve the quality of design and influence the delivery of the built environment in a more sustainable way, those involved in its promotion and management, and those who nurture the interests of future generations.

This year we were delighted to learn that James Moir, who lead the effort to secure funding for the transformation of the Cemetery ‘from a dead space to a living place’, who project managed the works and who remains the convenor of the project, was a recipient of this honour.

RIBA president, Simon Allford said: ‘This year’s honorary fellows are from wonderfully wide-ranging fields, including advocacy, commissioning, education and research. All share our passion for ever better architecture and design in the built environment’.

The award states: ‘Heritage and historic buildings consultant James Moir has dedicated his life to the preservation and conservation of our historic environment. He has worked on major historical sites across the UK and is a champion for the importance of craft in the profession.’
