The National Trust has announced the winners of its 2020 Ecclesiastical Insurance Cornerstone Awards, and Diamond Schmitt, with our partners KWC Architects, are honoured to receive this distinguished recognition for the Senate of Canada Building in Ottawa.

“The project achieved a balance between a highly complex functional program and the conservation needs of a significant building, going to great lengths to ensure the protection of the site’s heritage character.” -Jury Comments

Established in 2013 through the generous sponsorship of Ecclesiastical Insurance, these awards honour projects and sites in two categories: exemplary commercial, institutional or mixed-use projects (transformative projects); and places that demonstrate exemplary heritage stewardship and long-term sustainability (resilient historic places). With these awards, the National Trust also recognizes the people who have contributed to the successful regeneration of historic buildings and sites across the country.
