What constitutes good design?

How do we achieve it?

Thoughts and discussion coming soon …

Our awards

The Society holds an Awards ceremony. traditionally on a two year cycle, for good design of new buildings. The last Awards ceremony was in 2017. Covid-19 restrictions have impacted upon our activities, as a result the two year cycle has not been followed recently.

Update

The Planning Committee has received a limited number of nominations for the Awards. Having sought agreement with the executive committee they have reluctantly decided to postpone the current Award cycle until 2021.

When nominations are sought again the buildings nominated by the closing date of 31 January 2020 will be included. Nomination will be sought for buildings and schemes completed between September 2017 and January 2021.

The Planning chair thanks members that nominated buildings or schemes and will contact them personally shortly.
