Fareham Society Design Awards Scheme
One of the main aims of The Fareham Society is to stimulate public interest in the promotion of high standards of architecture and design in the Borough. To further this objective, the Society instituted an awards scheme to recognise and encourage good design in the built environment.
Large or small projects are eligible, such as new buildings, or groups of buildings including housing schemes, extensions, conservation or restoration work and landscaping. Awards can be made in three categories, New Build, Restoration and Landscaping
Awards will be made for the best examples of good design, completed over a set period of time. Commemorative plaques will be awarded to the winners of the new build and restoration categories together with framed certificates to the architects, builders and others associated with the winning entries. Framed certificates will be awarded to the winner of the landscaping section and may also be awarded to highly commended entries.
The Society reserves the right, however, not to make any award if it is not satisfied that the entries submitted have been of a sufficiently high standard.
Criteria for Nomination
The following criteria are offered as guidelines for submitting nominations:
- How well does the design complement its surroundings?
- How innovative is the project in concept and execution?
- Where appropriate, how has the project made use of sustainable technology?
- If the nomination is for a restoration project or an extension, how sympathetic is it to the original building?
An assessment panel of five Judges includes: former planners, architects or other property professionals and a general member of The Fareham Society.
