BALI award winners announced ahead of 40th anniversary Awards ceremony

Fifty-eight BALI members have been notified that they have won awards in this year's prestigious BALI National Landscape Awards in association with Horticulture Week and headline sponsor Green-tech.

A total of 127 entries were examined at an final adjudication process at BALI Landscape House in late August. 

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Awards and the ceremony at the Grosvenor House, Park Lane, London on Friday 2nd December, will be attended by over 900 industry professionals, clients and guests.

All award winners announced today will have to wait until 2nd December to find out if they have won a Principal Award, Special Award or the coveted Grand Award, and tickets for the ceremony are going fast.

The adjudication panel, chaired once again by Greg Allen, formerly Senior Lecturer in Landscape Studies at Writtle College and now an independent landscape industry consultant, spent the summer visiting the schemes and met at BALI Landscape House at the end of August to agree the list of winners.

Commenting on this year's entries, Greg said:

"Over the forty years that the BALI National Landscape Awards have been running the professional attainments of BALI members have consistently reached new heights in quality and excellence year on year, and 2016 is no exception. Our BALI Awards judges travelled the length and breadth of the country this summer to visit every scheme, including, for the first time, the design entries. We have all been delighted to witness some truly outstanding projects.

Attention to detail, which sets BALI members' work apart, was clearly evident in all the winning schemes, as was a thirst for innovation to resolve complex challenges faced by designers and contractors. The international entries this year are mostly on a huge scale and demonstrate the transformative nature of landscape design and construction when employed with vision and ambition.

The standard of workmanship achieved by all entries, whether in the domestic, commercial or public sectors, has been inspiring and with so many excellent entries again this year the task of selecting the Principal Award winners has taken hours of collective deliberation by the judging panel. That said, it is a task we all relish and feel privileged to undertake on behalf of the wider industry."

BALI's Chief Executive Wayne Grills was an observer during the final adjudication. He paid tribute to the judges, who travel many hundreds of miles and give freely of their time and expertise each summer to ensure BALI members' entries receive their full commitment and consideration:

"I am indebted to each of our highly respected judges for the work and commitment they give each year to the task of selecting our Award winners. It is their individual reputations in the industry that give such weight to the awards and ensure the BALI National Landscape Awards continue to be revered by those working in the landscape industry in this country and much further afield. As we celebrate 40 years of the BALI Awards I would like to congratulate this year's winners on their remarkable achievements and I, together with the many colleagues and guests attending the ceremony in December, look forward to seeing which of them will be recipients of the Principal, Special and Grand Award accolades."
