The first day of the Natural Stone Show was Architects Day, when some of the architects whose projects had won categories of the latest Natural Stone Awards presented their projects during a seminar session.

The Natural Stone Awards were presented in London by Stone Federation Great Britain in December. It was stated at the presentation lunch that an ‘Industry Choice’ category would be opened for the industry to choose their favourite from among the category winners. The Industry Choice winner would be announced at the Natural Stone Show at ExCeL London on Architects Day (6 June).

Following the presentations by the category winners, the Industry Choice winner was announced. It was Eric Parry Architects’ Phase IV of Chelsea Barracks.

Robert Kennett, a Director of Eric Parry Architects, had given a presentation about the project and received the Industry Choice Award from Stone Federation President Chris Kelsey (see picture above).
