Exterior Design and Interior Design & Fit-out Awards now open for entries

RIAI Conference | Architecture & Building Expo | 2017

Exterior Design Awards
Exterior design has become increasingly important, today’s challenge being to combine the aesthetics of the building exterior with features and materials that contribute to occupants’ comfort levels, energy efficiency, and sustainability.

This award was devised to acknowledge and reward excellence in façade design, and to promote industry best practice. It is sponsored by Kingscourt Country Manor Bricks.

All projects entered will be featured on a dedicated Awards’ stand where visitors can view, and assess for themselves, the different design solutions devised, and their effectiveness.
