Wandsworth Council is looking for people to nominate recently completed building projects that make a positive contribution to the environment and set a good example to other developments for the 2013 Wandsworth Design Awards.
The annual design awards, which began in 1999, are open to a developments big and small, from residential extensions, to major new developments completed since January 1 2011. Buildings can be nominated for a variety of reasons – whether it is because they offer improved access, particularly for people with disabilities, or because they demonstrate excellence in sustainable design and construction.
Nominations will be assessed by a panel made up of councillors, local architects and representatives from the Wandsworth Access Association and local amenity societies – and winners will be announced early in 2014.
If you want to nominate a building, download a nomination form from the council’s website or email your nomination with a supporting rationale and a project image by September 30. The awards have a number of categories: Access to buildings – improved provision for people with disabilities. Residential extensions, including loft extensions. Restoration/conversion projects, including schemes which introduce new uses into older buildings. Offices and shopfronts – new or restored. New buildings. Public spaces. Landscape projects – including front gardens. Sustainable buildings/spaces – buildings/spaces. Demonstrating excellence in sustainable design and construction.
