Brick celebrated at annual awards

The use of clay brick in the built environment has been celebrated at the annual Brick Awards, which has been running for 45 years.

With entries from leading architects, housebuilders, developers and contractors, this year’s awards were across 17 categories.

Ibstock’s bricks were used on eight of the award winning projects. Richard Brown, Marketing Director, Ibstock Clay Division said: “The quality of the projects shortlisted across all the categories of this year’s awards was incredibly high. To have been involved in so many of the winning projects is something we are all very proud of. 

“Brick is the most popular façade material in the UK and it is clear to see why when you look at the amazing buildings it is able to create. The beauty, flexibility and versatility of clay bricks along with their durability, excellent technical performance and sustainability credentials is something to be celebrated which is why the Brick Awards is such a popular event, with this year being its 45th year.”

Michelmersh also won multiple awards. The company’s Joint Chief Executive Officer, Frank Hanna, said: “With a huge range of shortlisted projects we are extremely proud to receive the BDA’s recognition across varying categories especially in the Craftmanship, Large, Medium and Individual Housing Developments. 

“This is a testament to the Group’s ability to maintain incredibly high standards and our ability to manufacture unique products based on architects’ visions & designs. Seeing our bricks being used by such acclaimed architects shows that Michelmersh plays a key part in building environments that can be enjoyed by local communities for generations to come”.
