Shortlist for the RIDBA 2019 Building Awards Announced

The Rural and Industrial Design and Building Association (RIDBA) launched the RIDBA Building Awards, to recognise innovation and excellence amongst members in the industrial and agricultural buildings industry.

After receiving a record number of entries, RIDBA is pleased to announce the shortlisted projects for the awards this year.

RIDBA Awards

Four months since the date of launch, last week culminated in the much awaited RIDBA Building Awards judging day. We are now one step closer to finding out who has entered winning projects this year.

Judging Day took place on 31 January, and the judging panel had the difficult task of narrowing all entries down to the best for each category. The panel consisted of Martin Heywood, Head Judge and RIDBA Technical Consultant, David Collier of Rural Planning, Andrew Brown of Visit Our Farm, Niresh Somlie of BM Trada as well as Graham Willmott, Chairman of ACR. External judge Chris Kendrick from Oxford Brookes University also participated in the judging process, as an external judge.

Head Judge Martin Heywood said:
"Congratulations to all entrants for upholding the usual high standards that we have come to expect from our industry. The judges had a difficult but enjoyable task in choosing the winners and, with the support of Farming Monthly, I am sure the RIDBA Building Awards will be a true benchmark for the industry.”

Thank you to all RIDBA members who took the time to enter their projects in the Building Awards 2019.

Congratulations to all shortlisted projects. Winners will be announced at the Awards ceremony on Friday 15 March 2019, at the De Vere East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham.

RIDBA would like to take this opportunity to thank its sponsors for their support in ensuring that the Awards are a standout event: Joseph Ash, Kingspan, AJN Steelstock, Marley Eternit, and Steadmans. RIDBA would also like to thank Joseph Ash as the official drinks sponsor for the pre-Awards drinks reception, as well as Farming Monthly, official media partner for the RIDBA Building Awards 2019.
