The Irish Concrete Society Award returns for the 33rd time to honour outstanding contributions in concrete for the Irish built landscape. The Award Scheme is organised to enable the Society to acknowledge construction achievements in which concrete, in any form contributes significantly to the built environment. Entries relating to the contribution made by concrete to any aspect of building, civil engineering, architecture, art or landscaping will be accepted by the Society.
Entries are subdivided into three categories:
- Element (Housing or small projects e.g. walls, stairs, paving)
There will be one overall winner chosen, with category winners in the other sections, depending on the level and quality of entries. The jury will consider awarding special recognition for the use of concrete in a sustainable context. Nominations should include a brief description of the contribution of concrete in this regard.
The adjudication will be carried out by an independent jury convened by the Council of the Society Nominations for the Award may be made by clients, Architects, Consulting Engineers, Material Suppliers, Contractors or others directly involved with the project. Nominations must refer to completed work, located in Ireland, which commenced after January 2011.
