The Schueco Excellence Awards for Design and Innovation, in association with the RIBA Journal, have become something of an institution, bringing together those who work with Schueco systems from across construction in a celebration of the best in design and collaboration. 

Now in their fourth year, the awards recognise the work of architects, specialist contractors and fabricators in developing and realising Schueco facade, window and door systems to deliver excellent buildings.

The judges will be looking for creativity, innovation, technical skill and collaboration.

This year there is a new improvement category for individual homes so the awards truly span all sizes, from the large to small scale. As well as homes the awards are also looking for commercial buildings, cultural projects, or those spanning health and education. In addition there is a special category to recognise the particular contribution of specialist contractors.

The judges:

Pankaj Patel, director, Patel Taylor Architects
Cindy Walters, director, Walters & Cohen Architects
Steven Kennedy, associate principal, Grimshaw
Steve Mudie, partner, Alinea Consulting
Chris Macey, group CEO, Wintech Group

Chair, Eleanor Young, executive editor, RIBA Journal

The 2017 winner and commended projects will be showcased in a dedicated supplement in the July issue of the RIBA Journal and recognised at a special awards lunch on the 42nd floor of The Leadenhall Building, in central London, on 22 June.
