Vying for Excellence

According to Schueco UK, innovations and improvements being introduced for the 2018 competition mean that there are now even more reasons for entering the Schueco Excellence Awards for Design and Innovation. Inaugurated in 2013, these annual awards aim to celebrate the very best in building design and construction in the UK and Ireland.

The 2018 Schueco Excellence Awards Gala Luncheon will take place on 21 June at the Saatchi Gallery, off the King’s Road in London. Every company that submits an entry will be invited to attend, free of charge.

Confirmed names for the 2018 panel of judges currently include Chairman, Ken Shuttleworth, Make architects; Denise Bennetts of Bennetts Associates; Carl Turner, Carl Turner Architects and Jason Flanagan of Flanagan Lawrence. Specialist cladding consultants are yet to be named.

The categories for the 2018 Excellence Awards are: commercial, cultural, education, health, individual house, individual house improvement, refurbishment, residential development, steel project and specialist contractor. There will also be a Schueco Special Merit Award for Overall Excellence.

The only stipulations for an eligible entry are that a project submitted should be completed or handed over before the end of March 2018 and should utilise at least one Schueco system and involve a UK- or Irish-based Schueco Partner fabricator.
