Brendan Dervan, Partner, and Derry Kearney, Associate, will be on the panel of judges for the Building and Architect of the Year Awards 2018.
The Building and Architect of the Year Awards provide a platform for architects and the buildings they design to be appraised by leading professionals within the Irish market. Categories have been designed for, and are open to, firms ranging from large to medium to small organisations or sole practitioners.
Brendan commented ‘This is my second year acting as a judge and I am delighted to be on the panel again for 2018. The competition covers all building sectors. It is interesting to read about the various architectural practices, the backgrounds to the projects and to see how the architects overcame various challenges in trying to meet their client’s brief; why they decided on the orientation and form of the building as well as their overall approach to sustainable design. Lots of interesting stuff!’
Derry also mentioned ‘I was thrilled to be asked to judge at this year’s awards, I have enjoyed reviewing the various categories and the obstacles each submission had to overcome during their design and construction stages.’
