Once again, the search is underway to find the best brickwork in action for the 2014 Brick Awards, organised by the Brick Development Association.
The Awards are one of the top design and construction awards in the country and show just what brick – the UK’s most popular cladding material – can achieve. Last year’s Supreme Winner was the Ortus , a learning facility in London with Barrett Developments winning the Volume House Building Award for the third consecutive year. Other house building awards were won by the following projects:
- Best Housing Development 1 – 5 Units: Long Farm, Suffolk
- Best Housing Development 6 – 25 Units: Hargood Close, Essex
- Best Housing Development 26 Units or More: Royal Road, London
Entrants are judged on a wide range of architectural design factors including demonstrating the building fabric’s sustainability credentials and the aesthetical choice, blend and bond of brick. The judges are also seeking attention to structural and aesthetical brick detailing, the buildings contribution to its context and quality of craftsmanship.
The 2014 Brick Awards will be presented at the Marriott Grosvenor Square Hotel in London on 12 November. Further information about the categories is available on the BDA website, www.brick.org.uk, where an entry form can be downloaded.
