Ancon sponsors 39th annual Brick Awards
As a long standing sponsor of the Brick Awards, Ancon once again joined the celebrations to acknowledge excellence in the use of the UK’s favourite cladding material.
This year, Ancon sponsored the 'Innovative Use of Brick and Clay Products' category, which features some stunning brick projects. The event took place on Wednesday 18th November 2015 at The Hilton, Park Lane, London.
The Brick Awards is the most well established design awards in the UK and the 14 categories, open to Architects, House Builders, Brick Contractors, Brick Manufacturers, Owners, and Developers recognises excellence in brick innovation, sustainability and architecture.
Ancon's regional sales manager, Graeme Lack, presented the award to the winner, City Park West. This urban development in Chelmsford was chosen by the judges due to the innovative manner in which clay brick was used to adjoin the brick rich railway station.
Innovation is one of Ancon’s core principles, with a continuous product development programme, we are keen to recognise other like-minded thinkers in the Industry.
Innovative and quick-to-install reinforcing bar couplers from Ancon replace time-consuming lapped joints and minimise reinforcement congestion in the gigantic concrete superstructure of Europe’s tallest building; the 87-floor, 462m high helicoidal Lakhta Tower in St. Petersburg.
Ancon is pleased to announce it has become one of the first businesses to transition its Occupational Health and Safety Management (OHS) to the new International standard ISO 45001:2018.
