Ancon to sponsor the 40th annual Brick Awards
We are proud to be a main sponsor of the 40th annual Brick Awards which recognizes excellence in brick. The event will be held on Thursday 10th November 2016 at The Hilton, Park Lane, London.
The annual Brick Awards now celebrates its 40th Birthday and continues to be one of the most prestigious and well respected awards nights in the design and construction sector. The night boasts beautiful brick projects from around the world and awards are given to the winners in 15 sponsored categories.
Ancon will again be joining the celebrations to acknowledge the winner of the 'Innovative Use of Clay and Brick Products' category after we sponsored the award last year.
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.
This award is for any building or civil-engineering project that displays a particularly innovative use of brick and clay products. For example, the project might exhibit a pioneering structural solution, or use brick in an innovative way to improve sustainability or design.
The shortlist for the Innovative Use of Clay and Brick Products 2016 is available to view here.
