The prestigious NZ Wood Resene Timber Design Awards 2018 are now calling for entries from companies and individuals wanting to showcase their timber design projects.

The Awards celebrates excellence in timber use and innovation in New Zealand. A record number of entries were received in 2017, and the bar was raised in terms of quality and innovation of entries. Organisers are therefore excited about the 2018 programme.

In the lead up to the Awards Gala held in Auckland on 20 September, finalists will be chosen for the ten design categories to then be evaluated by a panel of 4 industry experts. The categories cover residential and commercial architectural excellence, product and engineering innovation, infrastructure, and a category specifically for university student entrants. The new category this year is highly topical, Multi-Storey Timber Building Design.

For a taste of what is to come in 2018, take inspiration from the 2017 category winners here.
