November 27th 2011 (Grand Cayman): The Cayman Society of Architects, Surveyors & Engineers (CASE) and the Cayman Contractors Association (CCA), in conjunction with His Excellency Governor Taylor, are pleased to announce the six projects that have been short listed for the 2011 Governor’s Award for Design and Construction Excellence in the Cayman Islands.  The short listed projects are:

  • A renewable Energy Home by Island Drafting Engineering and Architectural Ltd
  • An Eco-Friendly Residence by Icon Architecture
  • Lighthouse Point by Jay Easterbrook
  • Kirk Freeport Bayshore Mall by the Burns Conolly Group
  • Sea Grape House by John Doak Architecture

The Panel of judges appointed by Governor Taylor included Mr. Arek Joseph, OBE, Ms. Carla Reid, Mr. Henry Muttoo, Mr. Henry Popper; Mr. Michael Godfrey, Mr. Woody Foster and Mr. Rayal Bodden and Mr. Craig Nixon as Presidents of CCA and CASE respectively. “I am honoured to have had the opportunity to endorse this Award developed by CASE and CCA which serves to promote high standards of design in the Cayman Islands,” says HE Duncan Taylor. “The panel of judges appointed is an impressively informed and knowledgeable group of industry leaders – each bringing their own unique perspective to the selection process.”

The Panel judged submissions on whether, and to what extent, the design and construction of the nominated project display the attributes of; Design Excellence, Creativity and Innovation, Sustainability and the Environment, Value, Buildability and Cultural Response. The Judges looked for material that was clearly presented and concisely informed them of the project and its response to these criteria. This year the nomination categories are different from last year’s in that they represent commercial as well as residential projects.

The shortlisted projects will be presented to Governor Taylor for his review on Monday 28 November and His Excellency will announce the winners at an Award Ceremony on 30th November at Government House. The winning project teams will receive a commemorative plaque for their building and will have the distinction of being able to display the Award recipient title and logo on their corporate and marketing materials.

Mr. Craig Nixon, President of CASE and one of the judges, said “I am extremely impressed with the diversity and quality of the projects submitted and I urge people to view the short listed submissions on the website at  The judging process was very thorough and whilst difficult to choose, the Panel feels that the six projects chosen best meet the judging criteria.”

Sponsors of the Governor’s Award include: Cayman National Bank, A L Thompson, C L Flowers and Sons, Cox Lumber, Cayman First, MC2 Design Group, National Concrete and Real Life magazine.
