MPG Group has won the bi-annual Saint Gobain Gypsum International Trophy for its work at the Aquatic’s Centre. The Awards featured entries from 66 contractors across 28 countries and six categories.
This iconic building, the venue for swimming, diving and water polo activities during this month’s Olympic games in London, comprises medical, research, administrative and creche facilities. The partitions throughout use moisture resistant grade plasterboard and acoustic ceilings in public circulation areas.
The Judges said: “The challenge of creating a venue with a short term objective for use during the games coupled with high performance and a need to make
partitions demountable for the longer term use of the building demonstrated the flexibility and sustainability of lightweight partition solutions.”
