Landscape Institute Awards Ceremony: 27th November

The 2014 LI Awards Ceremony takes place on Thursday 27 November at the Bloomsbury Big Top in Central London.

The Landscape Institute Awards are presented annually to encourage and recognise outstanding examples of work by the landscape profession.

The LI Awards aim to:

  • Promote the art and science of landscape architecture
  • Advance the knowledge and understanding of the discipline
  • Celebrate professional expertise
  • Reward schemes that demonstrate a high level of commitment to sustainability

This year's shortlist will be announced at the start of October and the winners announced at the November Awards Ceremony.

For more information and to reserve your place, visit the Awards page.


BIM Masterclasses

The first LI BIM Masterclass will take place in BIrmingham on 17 November. Full details and a booking form can be found here.

The LI BIM Masterclass aims to demonstrate how BIM can be applied to a Landscape Architecture workflow showing examples of the process, how information is produced, managed and interrogated and touching on some of the benefits and opportunities which this process presents for Landscape Architects.

Since the LI ran a series of introduction to BIM seminars throughout 2012-13, members have been asking us to provide them with more detailed information on how to apply BIM to their projects. Therefore the LI BIM Working Group have prepared a series of regional 'Masterclass' events throughout the UK that will offer all our members the chance to attend and gain a better understanding of how the whole BIM process works.

The Masterclass events are aimed at those who would like to see practical examples of BIM processes for landscape, those who wish to enhance their existing knowledge of the subject and anyone wishing to learn about BIM for the first time. The ultimate aim is that all of our members will feel confident in applying BIM to their projects and discussing it with their clients and other consultants.

Visit the BIM Open Group page for more information on BIM.
