Erskine House in Belfast was among international award winners at the fourth Building of the Year Awards for projects using Aluprof systems, held in Warsaw.
The building, designed by Todd Architects, was cited as: “A modern and environmentally friendly development which, combined with its original design, has become one of Belfast’s iconic buildings. This project is also an excellent example of successfully revitalising the urban fabric with thoughtful architecture.
The building offers 10,000 sq metres of office space with retail on the ground floor. The scheme is completed with a two-storey glazed penthouse with a city view and with Aluprof systems including the MB-SR50N, MB-SR50N EFEKT and MB-86 series fabricated by Walsin Ltd.
Michael Burns and Ronan Watts from Todd Architects were present in the gala night in Warsaw to collect their award.
Tomasz Grela, CEO and President of the Management Board at ALUPROF SA said:
All of the developments evaluated in the competition are top of the tree in terms of innovativeness, design and the solutions used for them. The entries combine functionality and interesting aesthetics and, thanks to the use of green and low-emission products, they support the idea of sustainable construction. That statement is confirmed
by the fact that almost fifty of the buildings which got through to stage two of this year’s competition are BREEM and LEED certified.”
Aluprof UK attended the event gala with a small team led by the managing director Wojciech Brozyna, national specification manager Jordan Kingman, London projects consultant Jon Manning and marketing manager Omer Kanipak to accompany invited architects and engineers from Todd Architects, Bryden Wood, AWW and Landsec.
