The RIBA Stirling prize is one of the most prestigious awards in an architect’s calendar, running every year since 1996. Named after one of Britain’s finest architects, the late James Stirling, this award is presented to the architects of the building that has made the largest contribution to the enhancement of architecture in the UK over the course of the year.

At Aspex, we are extremely proud to say that we supplied three of the six shortlisted projects, which were Neo Bankside Apartments in London, The Whitworth Art Gallery in Manchester, and the overall winner, Burntwood School in London.

The construction of the new school involved the creation of six modern faculty buildings and two other larger buildings, and the outstanding design of architects AHMM sealed the grand prize for the project.

Working closely with architects and contractors is a major part of how we operate, and we take great pride in the fact that we were involved in supplying the architectural ironmongery for this prestigious scheme.
