Judging Committee

Meet the Jury!

Judging for the International Trophy is a long, demanding and challenging process. To ensure that all entries are judged on an equitable basis, specific judging criteria have been developed and the International Jury Committee has been selected carefully. The judges are able to both assess the technical skills of drywall contractors and the overall performance of the systems and solutions implemented during the course of the projects. The panel is selected by the International Central Marketing Team to guarantee objectivity and to ensure full comprehension of all technical aspects. The 11th International Jury is comprised of Saint-Gobain and external experts as well as country delegates. 

Prior to the international awards event the Jury Commitee will meet from 12-16 February 2018 to review the project presentations, assess and vote for each project according to pre-defined criteria. To ensure fairness and continuity, all projects in the same category are viewed in the same session.

Judging Criteria

Every project will be assessed on the same criteria although points will be weighed according to the category in which the project belongs.

  • Craftmanship criteria including the quality & know-how of the workmanship as well as the technical challenge before & during installation/application
  • The contractor’s influence not only in incorporating Drywall systems and Gyrpoc products but also providing other Saint-Gobain solutions in a project.  
  • Finally, the overall presentation of the project, in the quality of the pictures, drawings, clarity of the presentation and the general aesthetics.

Winners

Project:
ODEON Music and Theatre Hall

Contractor:
S. Guldfeldt Nielsen A/S

The new music and theatre hall located in the H.C. Andersen Quarter was created as a cultural powerhouse with four stages and The Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, Southern Denmark all under one roof. The architectural design of the building is inspired by the varied townscape as it borders both the historical town and contemporary multi-story housing. It is comprised of a number of town houses with varying heights in order to harmonize with the neighboring buildings. The cultural house works almost as mini-city within the city, as the town houses are connected by glass-roofed arcades, squares and open spaces. The great hall accommodates approximately 1800 spectators while the small hall accommodates approximately 300 spectators. There is also a chamber music hall and a rhythmic hall, as well as a restaurant, bar/lounge with access to a roof terrace, offices, a canteen and a basement for parking.

Project:
Unterlinden Museum

Contractor:
WEREY STENGER PLATRE & STAFF

The Unterlinden Museum is located in Colmar, east of France. Housed in a 13th-century Dominican convent and a 1906 former public baths building, it features a large collection of local and international artworks. It officially opened its doors to the public in 1853. When the need appeared for the museum to gain more space, the city of Colmar decided to add supplementary buildings : the adjacent, Neo-Baroque former baths building was transformed into an annex of the museum, and a new building was added. A renovation project was designed by the Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron, using an architectural language that integrates into the old city, but also reveals its contemporary character. Werey Stenger Plâtre & Staff have conducted the entire range of plaster works required by the project, from drywall, ceilings, traditional plaster to fibrous plaster. It is the traditional and fibrous plaster works that make the project particularly extraordinary.

Project:
Midfield Terminal Building Abu Dhabi Airport

Contractor:
International Decor Co. LLC

The biggest and most architecturally imposing structure in the emirate of Abu Dhabi, the new Midfield Terminal at Abu Dhabi International Airport, is constructed between the airport’s two runways, and is grand by every measure. From its massive 1.1 km 6-storey covered terminal building, to a soaring roof that hits 52 m at its highest point, everything about the new building has been designed to amaze the 30 million-plus passengers expected to pass through the building over the next few years. To meet the aesthetic and performance requirements set for the project, the internal wall linings were categorised to meet the seismic, acoustic, fire and impact standards in a building capable of accommodating 3 full size football pitches.

Project:
Municipal Services Building

Contractor:
Gerko

The Municipal Services Building is a new office building measuring 1500 m². It is located in the community of Benfeld, in the Alsace region (East of France). From an architectural point of view, its truncated cone shape is quite atypical. The construction project required the installation of various partitions and ceilings. The key challenge was the application of Rigitone® Activ’Air® 8-15/20 (random pattern) - a completely seamless and monolithic system, to the ceilings and walls of the main conference room, whose interior design follows exactly the shape of the exterior design of the building: a hemicycle inside a truncated cone.

Runner-Ups

Project:
RESTAURACION ESTACION INTERNACIONAL CANFRANC

Contractor:
CARLOS MARTINEZ & ESCUELA SUPERIOR DE CONSERVACIÓN Y RESTAURACIÓN DE BIENES CULTURALES DE ARAGON

The Canfrac International Station is a railway station located in the Spanish municipality of Canfrac (Huesca). The international station of Canfranc was inaugurated in 1928 with an elongated floorplan, a bright and elegant interior, and a symmetrical structure. It has a functional distribution of the spaces from a covered central hall with a large dome. The project focused on the restoration of the vestibule, where the decoration of the interior plaster had practically disappeared in its entirety. This was the main difficulty in the work given that the missing models had to be modeled with the support of photographs. For its reconstruction, rigid molds were made and, using Iberyola stucco E / 35, replicas were made, taking advantage of the great fineness of the product that allows high whiteness and a perfect finish. The few original remains that have been preserved have been consolidated and reintegrated with Iberyola stucco and inert cargo.

Project:
Saint Carolus Hospital Project

Contractor:
PT. Sekawan Bangun Perkasa

The Saint Carolus new hospital building is a modernised development from the previous historical building in Central Jakarta which was built in 1916 and is owned by Perkumpulan Perhimpunan Saint Carolus Vereeniging. It was a revolutionary project driven by ambition to build a hospital with the best performance of acoustic, fire protection, and durability combined with an aesthetic and healthy environment. The major transformation was made by replacing the traditional brick wall with the latest technology from Gyproc® for the X-ray protection room and wall partition room, where the drywall application itself is rarely used.

Project:
The Star and Garter

Contractor:
PM White Drylining

Originally built in 1924 as a home for injured servicemen, the Star and Garter is one of the most opulent and well-known buildings in the picturesque area of Richmond, Surrey. Developer, London Square, worked closely with the heritage department at Richmond Council to restore the landmark Grade II listed building to its former glory – transforming it into a series of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom luxury residences. With a strong focus on quality and workmanship, these prestigious homes have been meticulously crafted to the highest possible standards. As a premium residential development, the main objective was to sensitively restore the building using the best products and finishes available, while taking utmost care to preserve its heritage. It was therefore decided that durable internal partitioning was a more appropriate solution than block work and wet plaster, when it came to constructing the individual residences within the building’s external shell.

Project:
Havenhuis - Port of Antwerp Headquarters

Contractor:
Lindner-Welsy

In the beginning of the 20th century, the Havenhuis was a fire station and it is now the headquarters of the Antwerp Harbor Company. Today, this impressive building is the workplace for more than 500 technical and administrative employees. It has become a prominent meeting point for the many international guests visiting or doing trade with the harbor of Antwerp. For the Antwerp Harbor Company it was very important that the old building was saved and integrated into the new concept. Therefore, they chose the most brilliant design of Zaha Hadid. She created a new asymmetrical volume on top of the old building that can be interpreted as a ship’s bow as well as an irregular shaped diamond; two very important symbols for the city of Antwerp. In the design of the interior, you can clearly see the hand of Zaha Hadid with lots of lines, planes, directions and views that are brought together and give you an exceptional experience.

Project:
Emaar Square Mall

Contractor:
Celikeller Dek. Yapi Sist. San. ve Tic. Ltd. Sti.

Emaar Square Mall is a part of the "Emaar Square" project along with residential units, offices and a hotel forming a complete development. Emaar Square takes its name from the wide and historical squares of Istanbul that unite people and lifestyles, having been envisioned to become a social hub. It has a strategic and central location on the Asian side of Istanbul with a convenient access from the main highways of the city. Successful application by the contractor has also let to monolithic appearance resulting in a high aesthetic finish for curvilinear planes. Being a shopping mall, acoustics was one of the main concerns to be taken care of. High occupancy rate, large volumes, high ceilings and floor openings made the use of materials with good acoustic performance a must. Rigitone® acoustic ceiling boards were chosen by the contractor to be able to have a controlled acoustic environment and sound absorption where necessary.
