The Trussville brewery on Beech Street was one of three projects by Birmingham interior design company TurnerBatson to win a 2021 IDIE Awards presented by The International Interior Design Association – Alabama Chapter (IIDA-AL).
The awards showcase the exemplary work of the chapter’s members and celebrates excellence in interior design. Winners were announced and honored at an event on Friday, September 24, 2021, at The Club.
TurnerBatson project recipients included Best of Large Corporate: Church of the Highlands – Central Office Renovation (Client: Church of the Highlands); Best of Hospitality: Ferus Artisan Ales (Client: Coby Lake); and Best of Small Institutional: Adamsville Elementary School – Media Center (Client: Jefferson County Schools).
“I am so proud of our team for this triple honor,” said TurnerBatson President Dave Reese. “Each project is so unique and with their own challenges and influences. I am grateful to IIDA for recognizing our exceptional clients and talented designers.”
The biennial awards program invites organizations, firms, and furniture dealers to submit projects completed in the previous two years. Submissions are judged by a panel of professional peers who practice in other market areas. This year’s awards drew 82 submissions from 24 firms and furniture dealers.
“Alabama is rich with interior design talent, and it is our honor to recognize those contributing to the industry through the IDIEs,” says Amy Cope, IDIEs Chair and President of IIDA-AL. “Congratulations to all the winners – we thank you for your participation and help in growing our profession and industry.”
