The Trust believes that positive contributions to the urban environment should be publicly recognised. To that end the Trust sets up a jury every two or three years to assess the contribution to the urban environment made by buildings erected in the past year or years and to recommend where awards should be made.

2023 Awards

As part of our 50th anniversary year celebrations, our Awards fell into three categories. The Dundee Civic Trust Awards for 2023 recognised projects completed since our previous awards in 2019, exhibiting a high quality of design and exhibiting excellent use of materials, energy conservation and sustainability.

The Dundee Civic Trust/Dundee Historic Environment Trust Conservation Awards for 2023 were given for projects deemed worthy of restoring and preserving the city’s built heritage and historic buildings.

Finally, the Dundee Civic Trust 50th Anniversary Awards highlighted outstanding projects not previously considered for a Dundee Civic Trust Award and parties who have made a consistent contribution to Dundee’s built environment.
