The Wood Awards 2013’s Repair & Adaptive Reuse category is a ‘must enter’ for anyone associated with the many excellent refurbishment and renovation projects featured in Refurb & Renovation News over the last two years. Projects entered can feature any type of wood or wood-based products, must be located in the UK or Northern Ireland and not have been entered in the Wood Awards before.
With permission from the owner, anyone associated with an eligible project – architects, designers, manufacturers, engineers, timber suppliers, consultants or even the client themselves – can enter. It’s free to enter, any number of entries can be submitted and the brand new online entry form on www.woodawards.com features a “save your progress” option to make the entry process even easier and more convenient.
Use the Wood Awards to showcase work you’re proud of, getting recognition for your achievements, demonstrate expertise in your field, raise awareness of your company and benefit from great PR in professional, consumer, regional and national media.
The main categories for the Wood Awards 2013 are:
- Repair & Adaptive Reuse
- Commercial & Public Access
- Small Project
- Bespoke Furniture
- Production Made Furniture.
A showcase of all the shortlisted projects will be exhibited at the UK timber event Timber Expo from 24th to 25th September at its new location at the NEC in Birmingham, and this year entrants don’t even have to be shortlisted to benefit from entering the Wood Awards. All entries will be featured on the Wood Awards Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest sites, helping grow your social media presence. This online exhibition of entries will give entrants the opportunity to increase their profile before the shortlist is even considered.
The Wood Awards is the UK’s premier award scheme recognising, encouraging and promoting outstanding design, craftsmanship and installation in wood.
For 2013, Canada Wood returns as a lead sponsor, once again joining founding sponsors the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) and the Carpenters’ Company, with major sponsors Wood for Good and TRADA. Other sponsors include American Softwoods a
nd support from BRE, and this year Wood Awards also welcomes the return of the Forestry Commission.
