Australia’s leading steel building products manufacturer, Lysaght, has announced the launch of the inaugural Lysaght Design Inspiration Awards.

“Our LYSAGHT® range of products have been an iconic element of the Australian landscape for over 150 years and are now being used to create iconic structures of the future. These awards aim to identify and recognise the exceptional architecture being created using Lysaght products,” said Matt Lloyde, Lysaght’s National Manager Innovation and Marketing.

“Members of our team work closely with architects and designers - from the earliest design stages where comprehensive product solutions are sought, in meetings where specifications are challenged, and throughout projects to ensure we deliver on every detail of a design vision,” Matt continued. “We know the talent and passion that is poured into the projects we support and, with the Lysaght Design Inspiration Awards, we wish to acknowledge it.”

Lysaght is asking architects, building designers and owners to submit their inspiring building projects, completed between January 1, 2013, and June 30, 2018, that clearly display a significant proportion of Lysaght steel building products. Entries will need to be submitted between July 30, 2018, and October 7th, 2018.

The awards, which are to be judged by a panel of industry experts, will consist of five specific ‘Category Awards’ from which one of the five winners will be awarded the overall “Lysaght Design Inspiration Award”.

The five categories making up the awards are:
      1. Commercial Projects (office, retail, warehouse, education and institutions),
      2. Industrial Buildings (factories, processing facilities and agricultural),
      3. Residential Projects (houses, villas, apartments, aged care and similar facilities),
      4. ZENITH™ Projects (structures utilising products from the new LYSAGHT ZENITH™ range of architectural cladding), and
      5. Heritage/Restoration Projects (refurbishment of existing building and structures)
    Each category winner will receive a $2,000 cash prize and their winning project will feature in the next edition of Lysaght’s ‘Design Inspiration’ publication, including acknowledgement of the winner and their company, where applicable.

    The second component of the awards will be the actual ‘Lysaght Design Inspirations Award’, which will be awarded to the overall winner as selected by the judges, chosen from one of the five category winners.

    The ‘Lysaght Design Inspiration Award’ winner will receive a trip for two to the World Architectural Festival in Amsterdam in November this year, including Premium Economy flights for two to Amsterdam, Premium attendance Packages for the festival and seven nights’ accommodation in Amsterdam. Their winning project will also feature one the cover of the next edition of Lysaght’s ‘Design Inspiration’ publication, including acknowledgement of the winner and their company, where applicable.
