BMA announces judges for Ageless Bathroom Design competition
The Bathroom Manufacturers Association has announced the judging panel for its inaugural Ageless Bathroom Design competition, which was launched last month. The competition is open to any bathroom retailer, architect or designer and the closing date for entries is 30th August.
The four professionals brought together to judge the entries include Kevin Wellman, chief executive officer at Chartered Institute of Plumbing & Heating Engineering, (CIPHE); Peter Gore, professor of practice (Ageing & Vitality) at Newcastle University Institute for Ageing; Kate Sheehan, director and occupational therapist at the OT Service and Andy Mclean, technical director at BMA.
"We are delighted to have secured such experienced and well respected specialists in this sector for the judging panel," says BMA CEO Yvonne Orgill.
"It is more important than ever that modern bathrooms deliver spaces that work for all, ensuring that everyone can wash and undertake personal hygiene with ease and enjoyment. We hope that our competition will highlight best practice and help promote the very best designers in this area."
There are three categories in the competition, a full bathroom, cloakroom and ensuite. Entrants will be required to design the room in accordance with all relevant regulations, using products available from BMA members, with CE marked and Unified Water Label products as appropriate.
The winners will be announced at the 2019 Bathroom & Kitchen Business Conference, which takes place on 8th October at the Carden Park Hotel, Cheshire. The winner in each category will receive a trophy and a certificate, with a £1,000 cash prize for the overall winner.
Details and entry forms are available from the BMA website:
