Sustainable building envelope specialist, Schueco UK, is once again running the Schueco Excellence Awards for Design and Innovation, in conjunction with RIBA Journal.
The 2015 awards will be presented at a special lunchtime event, to be held in June at the Saatchi Gallery in Chelsea. The winning and commended entries will be published in a special supplement accompanying the July issue of RIBA Journal.
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’.
The award categories are: 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.
Entries should be submitted by email to email@example.com; closing date for submissions is midday on 9 April 2015.
