The Return of the RIDBA Building Awards
The Rural and Industrial Design and Building Association (RIDBA) has launched the RIDBA Building Awards for 2019. In what is a bi-ennial event for RIDBA, the awards remain the highlight of the industry calendar, recognising innovation and excellence amongst members in the industrial and agricultural buildings industry.
Entries are now open for four award categories covering the full spectrum of the industries that RIDBA represents:
- Rural – Cattle, Equestrian, Captive (zoo) and Domestic
- Industrial – Light, Medium or Large
- Other – Retail, Manufacturing, Leisure, Education and MOD
- Training – Schemes and Projects or Managers and Apprentices
The deadline for entries is 9 November at 5:00pm and the winners will be selected by a panel of independent industry experts who will be looking for high quality workmanship, technical complexity and environmental qualities amongst additional criteria. The RIDBA Training Award will recognise the commitment of RIDBA members to investing in a qualified and skilled workforce.
The winners will be announced by a special guest in front of over 100 industry guests at an Awards Dinner taking place at the De Vere East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham on Friday 15 March 2019. From securing a competitive edge to being recognised for outstanding work, there are several reasons to enter the Awards. Award winners are also highlighted in RIDBA promotional materials and wider industry publications so the Awards are an excellent opportunity for RIDBA members to raise their company profile.
RIDBA Chairman, Mike Hammond said:
‘It is exciting to be a part of the RIDBA Awards for 2019. After the success of 2017, I am looking forward to seeing the projects that members are going to enter, as I have seen some truly remarkable work. I’d encourage all members to get their projects in; a RIDBA award will be the sign of a true industry benchmark and demonstrate the excellence and diversity within our industry.’
The RIDBA Awards 2019 are open exclusively to RIDBA members as well as suppliers, architects and specifiers working with RIDBA members. The Awards entry form can be completed here.
