Jim Greaves appointed as Chair of Judges for the Wood Awards May 4, 2021

Jim Greaves, one of our Principals, has been appointed as Chair of Judges for the 2021 Wood Awards. The Awards recognise, encourage and promote outstanding wood design, craftsmanship and installation throughout the UK, and are split into two categories: Furniture and Product, and Buildings.


Jim said: "Having been a judge for the last 17 years it is a great honour to be asked to chair the Buildings panel.


Despite restrictive regulatory and insurance challenges, wood has become an increasingly important construction material and it is now often the first choice for architects, designers, engineers and developers, offering lower carbon, biophilic, and regenerative solutions.


As a consequence, the standard of entries for the Wood Awards has been rising year upon year and it is a great privilege to be able to assess, and learn from, the many exemplar projects being put forward for consideration.”


Entries for the Wood Awards are now open, with a deadline of 25th June.
