A Belfast construction firm has picked up a top award for its work on the grand Mount Stewart estate. H&J Martin, now part of Lagan Construction Group, picked up the 'Building Conservation Accolade' at the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors in London. It lifted the award for work on the 18th century Mount Stewart property in Co Down.

The award was for work, on behalf of the National Trust, as part of a three-year refurbishment scheme. Judges said the project used "highly innovative" techniques to "repair serious structural defects throughout the property", adding they were impressed with the "clear collaboration in pioneering the approach of undertaking the works whilst maintaining the building open".
