Russwood, a provider of high quality flooring, cladding and decking products, is sponsoring the awards this year and John Russell, Managing Director of Russwood, commented, “We are keen to continue supporting Scottish architects and, as such, are delighted to be sponsoring the Stirling Society’s Building of the Year award. In the past the standard of entries has been exceptional and we are confident that this year will be no exception.”
The Stirling Society of Architects Design Awards have been established with the aim to recognise and promote the creation of good architecture and good design generally – to recognise architects, and clients, who have collaborated in the creation of well designed buildings and to encourage others .
In particular, the awards seek to recognise some of the excellent work created by local architects and created within the Stirling Chapter area comprising Stirling, Falkirk and Clackmannanshire areas. Entries are accepted from any Chartered Architect throughout Scotland who has completed a building in the Chapter area.
The award has initially been established to recognise the best building in the chapter area with other projects of exceptional merit being awarded commendations.
The winner of the Chapter Design Award is granted automatic free entry to the annual RIAS Doolan Prize, an award that carries a £25,000 prize.
