Ibstock in pole position for 2013 Brick Awards
Ibstock, the UK’s largest brickmaker, is leading the way with shortlisted entries ahead of the Brick Development Association’s (BDA) 2013 Brick Awards.
A total of 33 Ibstock projects which highlight the aesthetic appeal, versatility and performance of Ibstock’s range went through a rigorous judging stage and have been selected for the final shortlist.
Ibstock’s successful shortlisted projects include housing schemes, public and commercial buildings and refurbishment projects. They contain a number of outstanding and unusual projects including a new bus station in Stoke city centre, a boathouse in Worcester and even a university campus in Kyoto, Japan. Ibstock received more than a third of all nominations, demonstrating it is first choice for architects and specifiers when it comes to designing award-winning buildings due to its extensive product range and unique technical support offering, which includes the skills of specialist Design Advisors.
Andrew Halstead-Smith, group marketing manager at Ibstock, says: “We are delighted that so many of our entries have been shortlisted in the prestigious BDA Brick Awards. The variety of project types selected by the judges really shows the differing types of brick-based solutions Ibstock’s extensive range can deliver for architects, merchants and end customers alike. We look forward to a successful evening in November.”
The 2013 award ceremony will be held in London at the Marriott Grosvenor Square Hotel on 14th November.
