Sholto Humphries, President of the RIAS, commented:
“We had 75 submissions from throughout Scotland and ranging in scale from a few thousand pounds to over £34m. This number of entries is a tremendous vote of confidence and confirms that this new award, in only its second year, is now the single most important recognition of architectural achievement in Scotland.

The judges will decide which schemes to shortlist and will visit them to determine which are worthy of an award. While we are considering an extraordinary range of projects of different scale and type, from a modest house extension to a multi-million pound large new secondary school, we will be rewarding those projects which we feel best address the key role of architecture: to improve people’s lives. We are not restricted in the number of awards we make and looking at the quality of this list, the task ahead of us will be a tough one.”

RIAS Secretary Neil Baxter said:
“The fact that these awards bring together individual awards sponsored by Historic Scotland, Wood for Good/Forestry Commission Scotland and Zero Waste Scotland and incorporate the RIBA Awards for Scotland gives them real strength. The economic climate for architecture continues to be really tough and it is a huge credit to the profession in Scotland that the remarkable work illustrated in these submissions is still being produced. Scotland’s architectural renaissance continues!”

The Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS) has launched the 2013 RIAS Awards / RIBA Awards for Scotland.

Entrants to the ‘one stop shop’ RIAS Awards are now eligible for consideration for the RIAS / Forestry Commission Scotland / Wood for Good Timber Award (Award £1,000), RIAS / Historic Scotland Conservation and Climate Change Award (Award £1,000), RIAS / Zero Waste Scotland Resource Efficiency Award (Award £1,000) along with the RIBA Awards (and special category awards) and the Stirling and Doolan Prizes.

Sholto Humphries, president of the RIAS, said: “The expansion of the RIAS Awards in only their second year firmly establishes them as by far the most important awards for architecture and the built environment in Scotland. We are absolutely delighted that four major Scottish organisations have lent their support to our special category awards. Given our well established partnership with the RIBA this represents a tremendous opportunity for all architects with work in Scotland.”

John Kissock, chairman of Wood for Good, said: “This is our second year of support for the RIAS Awards. It is an excellent way of showcasing the exciting work that is happening in Scotland using timber, and also the very strong credentials wood has as a mainstream construction material.”

Ian Walford, Historic Scotland’s acting chief executive, said: “This new award celebrates the innovative and sustainable ways in which Scotland’s traditional buildings are being conserved and can contribute to the country’s climate change targets. We are delighted to be highlighting the good practise being employed in the heritage sector to re-use and refurbish our older buildings.”

Iain Gulland, director, Zero Waste Scotland, added: “Embedding resource efficient principles in the construction industry can help to realise significant cost savings and reduce impact on the environment. We are delighted to be sponsoring the Resource Efficiency Award, which recognises those businesses leading the way in managing the value of their resources.”

The judging panel for this year is RIAS President elect Iain Connelly, Past President Dr Joyce Deans CBE, RIAS 2010 Design Tutor Award winner Kathy Li, John Kissock, Chairman, Wood for Good and Roger Stephenson OBE of Roger Stephenson Studio, representing the RIBA.

Shortlisting will take place in March. The winners will be announced at a Gala Dinner at the Edinburgh Grosvenor Hilton on Wednesday 12th June.
