Fyfe Glenrock receive “highly commended” nomination at the 2020 Natural Stone Awards
Leiths, Fyfe Glenrock
The Awards celebrate and recognise the excellence of design in natural stone projects from across the industry. They provide a chance for the industry to showcase the wide range of applications possible with natural stone and to demonstrate that it is the ideal building material, providing architects, designers and clients with a sustainable, durable and attractive end product.
The Awards are split into nine categories:
New Build - Modern Style Stone Cladding - Any project that features non load-bearing natural stone cladding as covered by BS 8298.
New Build - Traditional Style Stonemasonry - Any project that features load-bearing natural stone.
Repair & Restoration - Any project that involves the repair and restoration of natural stone on part of a building or the building as a whole.
Interiors - Any project that uses natural stone within an interior setting, including domestic, commercial and high-end residential.
Landscaping - Any project that involves the use of natural stone in landscaping, whether it be public realm, commercial or private projects.
Craftsmanship - Any project that displays a high standard of stonemasonry craftsmanship.
Carving, Lettering & Sculpture - This can be a new commission, replacement or part replacement of the original which has become disfigured or lost.
Technology Innovation - Any project that displays the use of technology (computers and other machinery) in the creation or carving of natural stone projects of all description.
Sustainability - Any project that displays positive elements of sustainability, for example, re-use of materials, use of local materials or environmentally conscious project management.
The glittering Awards lunch where the winners are normally announced was scheduled for 4 December 2020 in London but, of course, that could not take place because of the coronavirus pandemic restrictions. Instead, Stone Federation Great Britain, which runs the Awards, decided to go digital and hold an online event on 19 March 2021.
