A COLOURFUL renovation of a derelict building has won its architects recognition.

The transformation of Patrick House on Leigh Road, Leigh saw PAB Architects Ltd win a Commendation with Merit in the building conversion category of Wigan Council’s Urban Design and Building Excellence Awards Ceremony.

The 1960s former tax office known as Boardman House was brought back to life with different coloured insulated render and is now home to local charity Compassion in Action.
