The WAN Product of the Year Award, in partnership with BAU 2011 are a unique, worldwide award scheme to showcase new and innovative products, materials and details available from the construction industry. Competitions and awards are an intrinsic element of products being specified for building projects. The value of an award is determined not only by the quality of the jury panel but also by the number and calibre of participants.
An international panel of experts will be appointed to review the products and select first a long list of 25, which will all be exhibited at BAU 2011 (the world's leading trade fair for Architecture, Materials & Systems in January 2011), then a short list of six and finally a winner: Building Product of the Year, which will also be announced at BAU 2011. Last year's jury panel included experts from Arup, Swanke Hayden Connell Architects, Hamiltons Architects, Stanhope Developers and the Building Research Establishment.
The award celebrates new technology and will raise the profile of the best available products through WAN's huge global audience, and by exhibiting the top 25 products at the fantastic BAU exhibition in January 2011, where we will also make the winners announcement.
All entries for the award will go into an exclusive database accessed by top architects from around the world. Selected products will also be highlighted in WAN's weekly News Review email.
