Laminex Australia have thrown in an extra $10,000 worth of business grants into the prize pool for the 2015 Project of the Year Awards, and are now inviting building designers to enter their commercial and residential projects into the program.

Projects completed from December 2014 that use Formica, Laminex or essastone products in any conceivable residential or commercial setting are eligible to enter into the awards.

The Project of the Year is open from 1 March to 27 October and the businesses responsible for the winning entries in the commercial and residential categories will be awarded in November.

The program will be hosted on Laminex Australia’s Facebook page where each month, the public will vote to determine a residential and commercial Project of the Month, both of which will be awarded a $500 eftpos card.

Last year, Laminex Australia announced the Marais Fitout by f2 Architecture as the Project of the Year and recipient of the $10,000 business grant (pictured below).
