SPACES Awards and Yearbook 2023

SPACES awards 2023 - award winners from last year
Do you think that the submissions for the SPACES Awards and Yearbook are only for Schools?

Last year we showcased not only education buildings but bus stations, libraries, churches, crematoriums, cafes, museums, medical facilities, leisure centres, and offices and an air ambulance station. A wide range of Public Sector Buildings. Projects that you are part of!

So if you have a project that you are proud of and it received an element of public funding of you can submit a project to this year’s Awards and Yearbook.

Submissions are invited nationally and can include:

  • New building and refurbishment projects across the public sector
  • Buildings that add value to the communities they serve
  • Buildings from all sectors of public construction
  • Projects that demonstrate collaboration
  • Projects that demonstrate Engineering excellence/ingenuity
  • Surveying projects that renew embedded value
  • Examples of construction team excellence

Anyone can make a submission whether you are the client, architect, contractor, engineer, surveyor or project manager who feels there is merit in a particular building or project.
