Carleton Announces Student Winners of the HODI Award in Built Heritage Conservation

Carleton University and the board of directors of Historic Ottawa Development Inc. (HODI) have announced seven winning entries of the 2019 HODI Award in Built Heritage Conservation.

HODI’s Award for Built Heritage Conservation is awarded annually to students at Carleton’s Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism, the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering or the School of Indigenous and Canadian Studies.

The award provides the opportunity for HODI to support the emerging generation of conservation professionals in researching, learning and practicing. Recipients are involved in projects aimed at safeguarding and rehabilitating historic buildings in Ottawa.
