2021 RIDBA Building Awards: Celebrating the best in rural and industrial buildings

The Rural and Industrial Design and Building Association (RIDBA) hosted the 2021 RIDBA Building Awards at the Macdonald Manchester Hotel.

Hundreds of guests celebrated the fantastic work of RIDBA members from all over the UK on September 30, 2021.

Comedian and writer Jo Caulfield hosted RIDBA's flagship event which saw prizes and commendations handed out to brilliant projects across eight categories.

RIDBA Chairman, Neil Fox, said:

“I’m delighted that at long last we were able to celebrate the best in rural and industrial buildings.

Once again RIDBA members have shown the sheer quality of their work and some of these projects have been completed under extraordinary circumstances. I would like to congratulate each and every finalist.

Finally, I would like to thank all of our sponsors, without their support, these awards would not have been possible.

Net-zero carbon rated Lingwood House was named this year’s overall winner. The striking office is just six metres from a railway line which meant RIDBA member M D Anthony had to be particularly versatile in their approach during the design and construction phases.

Luxury residential property Ben Jurin Islay Road by Wareing Buildings was highly commended for the complexity of its steelwork and its aesthetics.

The 2021 RIDBA Building Awards were sponsored by AJN Steelstock, Joseph Ash Galvanizing, Kingspan, Steadmans, Eternit, STRUMIS and media partner, Farming Monthly.

The chosen charity was the Lily Mae Foundation. The foundation supports parents and families after a stillbirth, neonatal death, miscarriage or medical termination. RIDBA would like to thank guests for their generous donations.
