Over 160 entries across 14 categories have been submitted to this year’s Structural Timber Awards and it looks like it is set to be a competitive and major inaugural event. The judging process has commenced with submissions from the likes of: ARH, Arup, B & K Structures, Engenuiti, Fordingbridge, HESS Timber, Kingspan Insulation, Morgan Sindall, Prewett Bizley Architects, Ramboll UK, SIG RoofSpace, Stora Enso and Wiehag. The winners will be announced at a prestigious awards ceremony on 06 October at the NEC, Birmingham following the shortlist announcement on 01 July.
The awards will attract over 500 national business leaders and high profile decision makers from the construction industry and will provide a significant platform for targeting the timber industry. They will also present the ideal opportunity for professionals to maximise industry exposure and penetrate this economically important market. Each of the judges will assess three of the 14 categories on a strict and confidential marking system to establish the award category winners, and any ‘Highly Commended’ entries.
Andrew Carpenter, Chair of the judging panel said: “These Awards are set to be the highlight of our construction calendar – interest has been phenomenal, clearing demonstrating the breadth of innovation in the timber sector. The timing could not be better – taking place during the first UK National Construction Week, when our industry pioneers will be congregating at the NEC.”
