Proud Sponsors of the 2013 Brick Awards
Ancon proudly sponsor this year’s Brick Awards, one of the longest established and widely respected design awards in the UK. Now in its 37th year, fifteen exemplary projects showcasing excellence in design and construction using brick were acknowledged.
Ancon sponsored the ‘Innovative Use of Brick and Clay Products’ category, which recognises building or civil engineering projects that display a particularly innovative use of brick.
Gee Street, London by Alfred Munkenbeck & Partners
The judges found the use of extruded bricks on Gee Street to be truly innovative. The bricks are turned on their side to create controllable ventilation into the mixed housing and office space.
Innovation is one of Ancon’s strengths. With an active new product development programme, we launch a number of new products every year and are keen to reward other innovative thinkers in the Industry. Ancon won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation in 2012.
