The celebrated awards recognise excellence in design and construction using brick, and after being shortlisted in 13 of the 15 categories, specifiers using Ibstock bricks were presented with an outstanding 9 awards in total, including the Best Public Building Award and the Supreme Winner Award 2011, both for the Lyric Theatre in Belfast. Ibstock bricks have been used in seven out of the last ten Supreme Award Winning projects.
Andrew Halstead-Smith, Marketing Manager at Ibstock, commented on the news: “We have a strong track history at the BDA Brick Awards and so to once again do so well is fantastic news and we couldn’t be happier – 9 out of 15 winning projects using Ibstock brick is outstanding by anyone’s standards!
“We truly believe that our continued success at these prestigious industry awards is testament to our diverse range, unrivalled sustainability credentials, great value and unmatched quality, not to mention our excellent technical service and design advice - so it’s safe to say that specifiers and architects looking to build award winning buildings needn’t look further than Ibstock bricks.”
Projects using Ibstock bricks also took home the Best Craftsman Award, the Best Housing Development Award – 1 to 5 units, the Best Housing Development Award – 6 to 25 units, the Best Housing Development Award – 26 units or more, the Best Refurbishment and Renovation Project Award and the Volume Housebuilding Award.
