Why not enter the Tylers & Bricklayers Triennial Awards?

January 2020

Nominations for the Tylers & Bricklayers Triennial Awards will close on 15th February 2020 for buildings and projects demonstrating excellence in one of:

  • Brickwork
  • Roof slating and tiling
  • Wall and floor tiling

To be considered for an award the building or project must have been completed in the last three years and must be located inside the M25 motorway. Anyone is free to propose a building for an award: the owner, the architect, the contractor or, indeed, a member of the public.

The Master of the Worshipful Company of Tylers and Bricklayers, Dr Michel Saminaden, said: “There are some brilliant new buildings out there and we would encourage everyone to nominate a fine piece of brickwork, tiling or roofing when they see it.”

The Worshipful Company of Tylers and Bricklayers was founded over 600 years ago and ranks number 37 in the order of precedence of City of London Livery Companies. It sponsors three crafts: bricklaying, roof slating and tiling, and wall and floor tiling.  Past winners of the awards include mosaic restoration work at Tottenham Court Road tube station (above). The awards will be judged by an expert panel and the prize winners will be announced at the Triennial Awards Luncheon at Painter Stainers’ Hall in the City, on 16th  July 2020.
