Proteus Facades Hits A Hat-trick At The Top Industry Awards
2nd December 2021
Proteus Facades, the leading designer and manufacturer of rainscreen cladding systems for building envelopes, has hit a hat-trick at the 2021 UK Façade Awards after winning three trophies, including the esteemed Project of the Year for the second consecutive year.
The annual event, which this year took place on Friday 19th November, is organised by Roofing, Cladding & Insulation (RCI) magazine, the highly respected industry trade journal. The awards are held to celebrate the achievements of façade contractors, manufacturers and suppliers who demonstrate an outstanding level of technical ability, design and quality of work.
During this year’s glittering ceremony, which was hosted by television and radio presenter, Jenny Powell at the Midland Hotel in Manchester, Proteus Facades were crowned winner of the Project of the Year and Best use of a Rainscreen System using Glass and Ceramic, as well as the Best use of a Rainscreen Cladding System using aluminium. The winning projects include:
- Project of the Year and Best use of Rainscreen System Using Glass and/or Ceramic alongside Clarke Facades and Downing Group for Lambeth Road Pound Field, a new student accommodation scheme in Lambeth that has been described as a welcome addition to the area, thanks partly to its lustrous façade clad in a combination of Proteus Facades’ Proteus GL glass and Proteus CX porcelain ceramic panels
- Best use of a Rainscreen System Using Aluminium alongside J&PW Developments for White Hart Street, a state-of-the-art regeneration project featuring Proteus Façades’ bespoke Proteus SC cladding panels arranged in a striking half-hexagon design that appears to float outward from the main structure.
For each project, Proteus Facades designed and fabricated the bespoke building envelope system based on the client’s requirements; before each one was fixed in place by each respective installation partner, all of whom also took home an award for their work.
Simon Gregory, Sales Director of Proteus Facades, comments: “The Façade Awards are a fantastic way to celebrate the high level of work, skills and expertise of people and businesses within our industry. We are thrilled to have taken home three awards again this year, including the highly coveted Project of the Year for our work on the Pound Field development. This is the second consecutive year that we have won this award for which we were shortlisted against a host of brilliant businesses, so we are honoured that we have been chosen once again. We would like to thank our installation partners and especially our team, who always put a great deal of effort and dedication into ensuring our projects are completed to the highest standards.”
