Gyproc’s entrant in the Plasterboard category, Terminal 2, Dublin Airport, was named overall category winner. Michael Scullion from Oakleaf Contracts Limited received the award from Claude-Alain Tardy, Gypsum Activity President on Friday night at the gala ceremony.
The second Irish bound honour on the night went to Martin McLaughlin, McLaughlin Taylor Drylining Ltd, receiving the Runner Up award in the Commercial category, for the Titanic Signature Building in Belfast.
Taking place every two years since its creation in 1998, each trophy in the 6 categories of the international competition aims to recognise and reward the craftsmanship of drywall and plastering contractors, while promoting excellence and innovation in the use of sustainable, lightweight plasterboard systems and plasters.
The range of projects and particularly the winners once again reflect how high performance plasterboard systems and plasters, combined with skilled workmanship, can provide solutions for high quality, safe, comfortable, modular and sustainable interiors across a variety of applications.
Commenting on the awards Brian Dolan, Gyproc Managing Director said, “We are delighted that Ireland has been triumphant in an awards event of this scale with a wide-range of outstanding projects entered. It takes a jury composed of an international, independent panel of Gypsum industry experts to scrutinise the overall performance of the systems and solutions implemented during the course of each project submitted. Gypsum is proud to sponsor the prestigious International Trophy to promote world class skills in drywall technology and plastering and we wish Oakleaf Contracts and McLaughlin Taylor Drylining Ltd continued success and thank them for their contribution to innovation in this industry.”
