Structural Timber Awards – Final Call for Entries

Today, the organisers of the Structural Timber Awards put out a final call for entries.  With the deadline for submissions fast approaching on 12 June 2015 – the Awards have attracted entries from project and products large and small but all have one thing in common – timber!

From entries for the new BSkyB Believe in Better Building project to the tallest cross laminated timber residential development in Europe, to Whipsnade Zoo’s elephant and gorilla enclosures and the 42 metre high glulam arch at the Leeds Recycling & Energy Recovery Facility – nothing is too large, small or unusual.

The prestigious event provides one of the most effective platforms for targeting the timber industry, presenting the ideal opportunity for you to maximise industry exposure and penetrate this economically important market.

Arhcitect of the Year
Open to any size of practice. This award will celebrate a professional architect or architectural technologist that has specified timber and used it as a defining feature within a completed building in the UK. Emphasis will be given to the technical and creative reasons why timber was specified and how this was communicated within the project team. Particular note will be given to the use of leading edge building techniques and originality to construct inspirational examples for future building design, within a framework of cost, deliverability and timescale.

The free to enter Structural Timber Awards will reward outstanding projects, innovative products and dynamic people – all promoting excellence in structural timber across the UK.  Across key sectors of construction, the Awards will showcase innovation, celebrate best practice and recognise expertise in timber technology and the ways it contributes to an attractive, energy efficient and sustainable built environment.

The Awards will be presented at a high profile dinner on Tuesday 06 October 2015 at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC), Birmingham. As an inaugural major event in the timber calendar, the event will attract 500 national business leaders and high profile decision makers from the construction industry.
