The categories for the 2019 Schueco Excellence Awards are:
This year, the panel of judges will be chaired by Paul Williams of Stanton Williams and will include Julia Barfield of Marks Barfield, Neil Dusheiko of Neil Dusheiko Architects, Clare Wright of Wright & Wright, Steve Mudie of alinea Consulting and Paul Savidge of Wintech.
The special Awards Luncheon in June will once again take place at the famous Saatchi Gallery off the King’s Road in Chelsea. Every company that submits an entry to the Awards can attend this prestigious occasion.
All shortlisted projects will be included in a special Architecture Today supplement, which will be circulated to over 12,500 top opinion-formers, and winning companies will also benefit from being promoted in Schueco UK’s own Partner and Resi magazines (combined circulation 25,000).
