SCS Building Awards 2018

Shrewsbury Civic Society (SCS) Building Awards are for buildings in Shrewsbury which are considered to make a positive contribution to the built environment of the Town. The last Awards were made in 2016 and this year is to be the next time that the buildings of Shrewsbury are to be considered. There are four categories for the Awards:- 1. New built buildings. 2.Renovated or refurbished buildings. 3. Shop fronts, new or refurbished. For 2018 to celebrate 50 years since SCS first started work on the Bear Steps Restoration another category has been added for this year only: 4. The most outstanding new building or substantial renovation, of the last 50 years. The Awards are for buildings, or shopfronts, which have been completed between 14th September 2016 and the closing date 14th September 2018. The exception is for the building which is the most outstanding since 1968 where the obvious start date is as it says ‘1968’. Anybody can enter a building for an Award. You don’t have to be a member of SCS. You don’t have to own the building. Entries are welcome from Owners, Occupiers, Builders, Developers, Architects, SCS Members, other organisations and from anybody interested in the built environment of Shrewsbury. There is an entry form available at Bear Steps, on the SCS Website and in the Newsletter but you can just submit the name of the building and the category and we will do the rest. Just email, 01743 344994, drop in at Bear Steps or write to Building Awards, Shrewsbury Civic Society, Bear Steps, Shrewsbury, SY1 1UH. The more people who participate the more we can promote the quality buildings of Shrewsbury. Anyone can make more than one entry and SCS would like to see a wide range of buildings to be considered for the Awards. The closing date for entries is 14th September 2018 and entries are already being made. The Awards will be announced at a ceremony at Bear Steps on Friday 19th October at 12.30pm which will be open to the public. SCS wants to recognise the excellent buildings of Shrewsbury. They give builders of the future something to aspire to. SCS wants the people involved in building to know that buildings which deserve to be recognised will receive a positive accolade. Please do participate.
