The George Phillips Built Environment Award was awarded jointly to the new Sports Centre at Uppingham School and the Old Hall, Langham. The Award, recognises significant contributions by a recent, new or refurbished building or development towards conserving or enhancing the built environment of Rutland. The Award to Uppingham School was received by David Hearsum on behalf of the Trustees. Located to the west of the town centre in open countryside, the new Sports Centre incorporates a swimming pool, fitness and dance studios, sports hall and gymnasium. Planning Permission was granted in 2008 for the demolition of existing facilities and the erection of the new sports centre and pavilion, including grounds, courts, pitches, paths, parking and landscaping. The Award to the Old Hall Langham was presented to the owner, Jill Armstrong. The Hall underwent extensive restoration following a devastating fire in October 2007 that caused substantial destruction of the grade II* listed building.
