GEZE UK supports the tradition of excellence that is Scottish architecture

GEZE UK has pledged its support to the best of Scottish architecture for the third year running – through its sponsorship of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS) Awards Dinner 2017.

The prestigious, black tie event will take place at the Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh, on Wednesday 14th June where a range of awards for architectural achievement will be presented.

These will include the announcement of the RIBA Awards for Scotland and the presentation of the Forestry Commission Scotland/Wood for Good, Historic Environment Scotland and Saint Gobain (Emerging Architect) awards to name but a few.

Drawn from 84 entries, this year’s 27-strong RIAS awards shortlist comprises a diverse range of projects, a number of which feature GEZE UK automatic doors. More information can be found at

Andy Howland, GEZE UK sales director said:

“We are once again delighted to align GEZE UK with the creativity and skill that embodies Scottish architecture” 

“We work hand-in-hand with architects to help bring their creative vision to fruition with door and window control solutions that can be both innovative and sensitive to each building’s heritage or natural environment.”

Speaking of this year’s shortlist, Willie Watt, President of RIAS commented:

“Year on year the quality of Scottish architecture is on the rise. Last year’s Festival of Architecture shone a bright light on both contemporary and historic buildings, literally highlighting a tradition of excellence. That tradition continues and as this brilliant shortlist demonstrates, Scotland’s architecture is in very good heart.”
