British Gypsum has revealed the winners of its prestigious National Trophy Awards, which aim to celebrate craftsmanship and skills in using traditional plaster and modern plasterboard systems.

Now in its tenth year, the awards recognise the contribution that contractors make to the UK construction industry on a daily basis, with accolades presented to developments across six categories:

  • Norwich Enterprise Centre (Innovation and Sustainability)
  • Five Pancras Square, London (Plasterboard)
  • Resort World, Birmingham (Commercial)
  • Michael Sobell Sports Centre and School, Aberdare (Education, Hospitality & Healthcare)
  • Great Minster House, London (Residential)
  • Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester (Plaster)

Alastair Bell, managing director of British Gypsum explained: “The winning projects were selected due to their commitment to addressing common issues in the construction sector such as reducing carbon, overcoming poor acoustic performance and extending maintenance cycles.”

The winners will now go on to join more than 33 different countries as UK representatives in the Saint-Gobain Gypsum International Trophy Awards in Prague later this year.

Established in 1998, the biennial awards observe excellence in design and installation, as well as the need to meet market demand for high quality, sustainable interior systems.
