It has been announced that the GAI/RIBA Architectural Ironmongery Specification Awards are officially open for entry.
The awards are organised by the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI) in conjunction with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). The awards aim to identify and reward excellence in the specification of architectural ironmongery and specifiers can now nominate projects for the awards until Friday 16th November 2018.
Projects can be nominated for the following categories: residential; commercial and hospitality buildings; public health and education buildings; international projects outside the UK and Ireland and, new to the 2018/19 awards, best new product: design and innovation.
For each category there will be a winner, second and third place and judges will also decide on an overall ‘winner of winners’. The winners will be announced at a celebratory lunch in March 2019.
“These awards are unique because they reward the whole specification team, highlighting the importance of the professional partnership between architects and architectural ironmongers,” explains David Stacey, president of the GAI. “The calibre of entries is always incredibly high and shows architectural ironmongery at its best. The GAI is always proud to see its member companies involved in so many complex projects,” he adds.
There is no limit on the number of entries to the 2018/19 awards and the first entry from GAI or RIBA members is free of charge. Click here to nominate a project for the awards.
