Architects and specifiers have until Friday 16th November to nominate projects for the GAI/RIBA Architectural Ironmongery Specification Awards 2018.
Organised by the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI) in conjunction with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), the biennial awards aim to identify and reward excellence in the specification of architectural ironmongery.
Projects can be nominated for the following categories: residential; commercial and hospitality buildings; public health and education buildings, and international projects outside the UK and Ireland.
Plus, this year’s event will see the addition of the ‘Best new product: design and innovation’ category. The category has been added to showcase new ironmongery products and celebrate products that have been created using new methods of manufacture, or that display new design concepts or originality of thought.
Architects, specifiers, building contractors, clients and their architectural ironmongery advisers and suppliers across the world can nominate projects for the 2018/19 awards until Friday 16 November 2018. The projects or products must be either completed or released onto the market between 1 October 2016 and 30 September 2018 to be eligible for entry.
For each category, there will be a winner, second and third place. The judges will also decide on an overall ‘winner of winners’. At the 2017/18 Specification Awards, this accolade went to Kings Gate, a residential project by architectural ironmongers izé and architect Lynch Architects. A brochure featuring the 2017/18 winning projects can be downloaded from the GAI website.
