The purpose of the Awards is to encourage and stimulate architects, developers and contractors to undertake the highest level of design and workmanship in new buildings, and in preserving and improving existing ones.
Nominations were for a contemporary new build, or an improvement /modernisation, which should be sympathetic to the existing building and integrate well with its surroundings. The judges’ appraisal of the nominated buildings is based on good design for their location, whether they fulfil their purpose and, ideally are environmentally sustainable.
