Architectural Ironmongery Specification Awards now accepting entries

  • 30 Sep 2016

The Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI) and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) are now accepting entries for the biennial GAI/RIBA Architectural Ironmongery Specification Awards.

The Architectural Ironmongery Specification Awards are designed to recognise excellence in the specification of architectural ironmongery in residential and commercial projects, as well as health and education buildings within the public sector.

The awards are unique for rewarding the entire specification team, highlighting the professional partnership between the architect and architectural ironmongers. 

Construction professionals including architects, specifiers, building contractors, as well as clients and their architectural ironmongery advisors and suppliers can now nominate projects for the 2016/17 awards from now until the 28th October 2016. Projects are accepted from both inside the UK and overseas.

For each category there will be a prize for first, second and third place. The panel of judges will also decide on an overall ‘winner of winners’, which in 2015 went to Tate Britain, with architectural ironmongers Allgood and architect Caruso St John jointly awarded the top prize.
