The £1.4m scheme, which has seen the Grade II* listed building transformed into office and retail space, has reached the final of the East Midlands Local Authority Building Control (LABC) Building Excellence Awards.
The project has been shortlisted in the categories for Best Change of Use of an Existing Building, Best Public Service or Educational Building, and Best Small Commercial Project.
Winners will be announced on Thursday 27 August 2020 although there will be no awards ceremony this year due to COVID-19 safety measures.
Cllr Stuart Richardson, Portfolio Holder for Regeneration and Growth, said: “This is wonderful news and well deserved.”
“The Old Town Hall has undergone an amazing transformation. The council architects have managed to achieve a wonderful blend of the old with the new on the interior of one of Mansfield’s most significant buildings.”
“We hope this will breathe new life into this historic jewel in Mansfield’s crown after laying unused and largely unusable for more than 30 years.”
“We were hoping to reopen it in the spring and then the coronavirus lockdown happened, so now we are hoping to open it just as soon as we possibly can.
“With the BT lines now installed, the final snagging and testing of the property is underway ahead of it being handed back to the council by the contractor.”
