The AJ has launched its annual Retrofit Awards, championing the best in the creative re-use of buildings and construction
The prestigious awards scheme, now in its fifth year recognises and celebrates design excellence that prolongs and improves the life of the built environment.
The awards cover twelve categories from civic and community, to offices and cultural buildings, hotels and leisure completed between January 2013 and May 2014. This year a new category for international innovation which recognises excellence in retrofits carried out to buildings outside the UK has been added.
Last year the Retrofit of the Year Award was scooped by Hugh Broughton Architects’ £3.15million Maidstone Museum East Wing in Kent. The project also won both the Cultural Buildings and the Heritage categories of the awards.
The entry deadline is May 2, 2014. Any entry enquiries, please contact Francesca Verdusco on +44 (0)20 3033 2660 or email her at email@example.com.
