GEZE UK has announced that it will sponsor the RIAS Centenary and Awards Dinner for the third consecutive year.
The 2016 Awards will celebrate the best architectural achievements in Scotland and will be held at The Hilton Hotel in Glasgow on Wednesday 15th June.
23 projects have been shortlisted by an experienced judging panel, chaired by Willie Watt PRIAS and consisting of Denise Bennetts FRIAS (Royal Institute of British Architects), Alan Jones PPRSUA Hon FRIAS, Andy Leitch (Forestry Commission Scotland) and Stuart McKill (Saint-Gobain).
Projects included a lookout tower with an oil-rig style construction and views of the Flow Country, a variety of new learning environments, a town centre redevelopment and the refurbishment of the British Golf Museum and Café at St Andrews.
Kaz Spiewakowski, managing director of GEZE UK commented: “The RIAS Awards are the ideal opportunity to highlight and celebrate the tremendous architectural skills and creative talent of Scotland. The public demand for high quality buildings is keen and GEZE UK provides solutions for door and window control which can be both innovative and yet sensitive to the built heritage or natural surroundings.”
Willie Watt, President of the RIAS added: “This is a list that fully demonstrates the privilege of living in our magnificent wee country and just how architects have embraced the responsibility that brings with it.”
