SUSTAINABLE building envelope specialist Schueco UK has announced that, in conjunction with RIBA Journal, it is again running the Schueco Excellence Awards for Design and Innovation.
The 2015 Awards will be presented at a special lunchtime event to be held in June at the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea. Launched in 2014 to celebrate the very best in UK building design, the Schueco Excellence Awards have nine separate categories covering more or less every sector of the industry. The only stipulation for entry is that the building submitted should include at least one Schueco system.
The panel of judges for 2015, which will be chaired by RIBA Journal editor, Hugh Pearman, includes Paul Monaghan, director, AHMM; Mary Duggan, director, Duggan Morris Architects; and Bob Allies, partner, Allies and Morrison. The judges will be looking for entries that demonstrate how creativity, innovation and build-team collaboration using Schueco systems have delivered exemplar design and exceptional product solutions to realise original concepts.
Once again, the categories for the Awards will be: education building; health building; commercial building; small project; individual home; residential development; sustainability; steel projects; and specialist contractor. There will also be a Schueco Special Merit Award for Overall Excellence.
A pdf of the Awards supplement which will contain all the short-listed entries will be available to download from the Schueco UK website, giving finalists an excellent opportunity to showcase their expertise directly to some of the most influential people in the industry.
Entries should be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org; closing date for submissions is midday 9 April 2015. Further details of the categories and the entry criteria can be found on the RIBA website and Schueco is now inviting entries for all categories.
