The Architectural Services Award is open to all architects and firms registered in Victoria. To be eligible for this award, the architect or firm must be currently registered and will need to fill out an entry form. They will then need to identify one or two clients from project/s completed in the last two years who they feel they have provided excellent service and who agree to support their nomination.
Entries should be sent directly to the ARBV by the nomination closing date each year.
After the closing date identified clients will be sent a Client Evaluation Form to fill out about their architect.
The winning architect, announced at the ARBV Certification and Awards Ceremony to be held in December each year, will receive $5000 and a certificate of excellence. The Board will make a payment of $2500 to the runner up if the committee so recommends.
To complement the Architectural Services Award, the ARBV has developed advice, Working With Your Architect, which outlines the services, roles and responsibilities of architects. It also provides advice to clients about their roles and responsibilities when working with an architect – all common areas of enquiry to the ARBV.
Clients may download the brochure from the ARBV website under the Publications tab.
