CELEBRATING THE BEST IN ARCHITECTURAL IRONMONGERY SPECIFICATION
Organised by the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI) in conjunction with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), the biennial AI Specification Awards identify and reward excellence in the specification of architectural ironmongery in the construction industry.
"The AI Specification Awards show architectural ironmongery at its beautiful best. Rewarding the whole specification team, the awards highlight the importance of the effective partnership between architects and architectural ironmongers."
DAVID STACEY - GAI PRESIDENT
Architects, specifiers, building contractors, clients and their architectural ironmongery advisers and suppliers across the world nominate these projects, which are then visited and scrutinised by experienced assessors. Projects are assessed in the following categories; commercial and hospitality buildings, public health and education buildings, residential buildings, and in international projects outside the UK and Ireland. A new addition in 2019 is the Best New Product: design and innovation award.
Judges look at the scope of works, the suitability of the architectural ironmongery and its fitness for purpose, its compliance with relevant regulations and standards, and its aesthetic excellence. The winners truly represent the best that architectural ironmongery has to offer, providing a celebration of the finest work in the industry.
