The Natural Stone Awards 2018
|Stone Federation Great Britain are delighted to announce that entry for the Natural Stone Awards 2018 is now open.|
The Natural Stone Awards is a biennial event set up by Stone Federation and has established itself as the most prestigious awards event in the natural stone industry calendar. The Awards celebrate and recognise the excellence of design in natural stone projects from across the industry. Each year the Awards see work from throughout the British Isles entered across the various categories.
The Awards provide a chance for the industry to showcase the wide range of applications possible with natural stone and to demonstrate that it is the ideal building material, providing architects, designers and clients with a sustainable, durable and attractive end product.
Entries can be made by anyone involved in the project including the architect, main contractor, stone contractor, stone supplier, client or building owner.
Stone Federation’s Chief Executive, Jane Buxey commented,
“We are encouraging all those involved in the natural stone industry to enter their projects into the Natural Stone Awards 2018. This is a great opportunity to gain widespread recognition for your practice or company and products or services that you provide.”
The Natural Stone Awards are split into nine categories, each celebrating and showcasing a different aspect of the natural stone industry. The aim is to showcase the versatility of this fantastic, natural material and in so doing to inspire architects, designers, clients and specifiers with unique ideas for their own projects.
The categories are:
- New Build - Modern Style Stone Cladding.
- New Build - Traditional Style Stonemasonry.
- Repair & Restoration.
- Lettering & Sculpture.
- Technology Innovation and Sustainability.
The Natural Stone Awards Ceremony will be held in London on Friday 7th December, 2018, and will see 300 architects, designers, local authorities, contractors, specifiers, clients and natural stone firms gather for a day of celebrating the very best that the industry has to offer, as well taking advantage of the first-class networking opportunities.
