Schueco calls entries for 2017 Excellence Awards

Leading sustainable building envelope specialist Schueco UK is now seeking entries for the 2017 Schueco Excellence Awards for Design and Innovation, its annual celebration of the very best in building design in Great Britain and Eire.

Now in their fourth year, the Awards – which are run in association with RIBA Journal – have won the respect of the UK building industry because of the high quality of the submissions they routinely attract. The only stipulation for entry is that a project should utilise at least one Schueco system and involve a Schueco UK Partner specialist contractor.

For 2017 the on-line entry form on the RIBA Journal website has been streamlined to make submissions easier. Entries can now be submitted: the closing date is 10th April.

In addition to creativity and design innovation in the use of Schueco systems, the judges will be looking for evidence of a close and fruitful collaboration between the architect, specialist contractor and Schueco UK.

The names of the judges for the 2017 competition will be announced shortly, but the panel will be made up of leading British architects augmented by two specialists in façade technology.

The 2017 Awards will be presented at a prestigious luncheon to be held for a second year at the iconic Leadenhall Building in London on 22nd June. Every company that submits an entry will be invited to attend.

Winning submissions will be included in a special RIBA Journal supplement circulated to 30,000 industry professionals and will also be promoted in both Partner and Resi magazines, two Schueco publications with a combined circulation of 25,000.

A pdf of the Awards supplement will be available to download from the Schueco website after the presentation lunch, giving finalists an excellent opportunity to showcase their expertise directly to some of the most influential people in the industry.

Full details of the categories for 2017 and the entry criteria may be found on the RIBA Journal website.
