Eco Depot

Architect: Carillion Regional Building, Leeds
Client: City of York Council

Judges Comments: York City Council has done well in this year’s awards and rightly so. The Eco-Depot is the hub of the city’s progressive approach to waste management and recycling. It is not a costly building but is a pleasing place to work and has a public face too. Its environmental credentials are excellent. This is “the biggest straw building in Europe”.
