10th Saint-Gobain Gypsum International Trophy
The 10th Saint-Gobain Gypsum International Trophy Awards ceremony was held at the Zofin Palace in Prague, Czech Republic on Friday 3rd June 2016.
The morning began with an intimate press conference for the journalists, allowing them to learn more about this special 10th edition of the Saint-Gobain Gypsum International Trophy and the projects that competed this year.
This 10th edition of the biennial competition was the biggest and most international to date, attracting 89 projects from 35 countries across the 6 awards categories.
Prior to the evening gala dinner, guests had the opportunity to view all of the competing projects, as well as Saint-Gobain Gyproc’s newest and most innovative solutions in the ‘Innovation Corners’, at the pre-awards Exhibition. Here, each contractor received a participation award in recognition of the high level of craftsmanship needed in order to reach the international level of the competition.
Over 450 guests, including contractors, architects, journalists and Saint-Gobain employees enjoyed spectacular acrobatic and pole art performances from local Czech artists throughout the ceremony.
During the course of the ceremony 12 awards across the 6 categories were presented along with a short introduction from the Gypsum Activity International Marketing Director Sylvain Bredin and a few words from the jury members.
The award ceremony culminated with the presentation of the Grand Prix and President’s Prize. The Grand Prix, presented by Sylvain Bredin, represents the overall competition winner. The President’s Prize, awarded by Claude-Alain Tardy, is a unique discretionary award presented to a contractor whose project reflects the Saint-Gobain Gypsum Activity’s overall strategy. This year the award was given to a contractor from a fast growing market.
The projects, especially the 14 winners, showcase how our high performance plasterboard systems and plasters, combined with skilled workmanship provide solutions for high quality, safe, comfortable, modular and sustainable interiors across a wide variety of applications.
