Title

EUROPEAN CONCRETE AWARD 2014 GOES TO NORWAY AND AUSTRIA

Text

The object of the European Concrete Societies Network (ECSN) is to encourage cooperations between Concrete Societies of twelve European countries and promote the development of concrete technology and use of concrete in Europe. One of the actions is the organizing of the EUROPEAN CONCRETE AWARD. On the 3rd of April the award ceremony for the EUROPEAN CONCRETE AWARD was held in Vienna during the Austrian Construction Congress.

The ECSN’s called for the submission of attractive projects both buildings and civil engineering resulted in 34 submissions -15 for the building category and 14 for the civil engineering category. The participants this year came from Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden. The projects were evaluated against a set of criteria by an international jury. Among those criteria are: design, construction, visual appearance and harmony of the structure with its surroundings, properties of concrete exploited in the design, innovative use of concrete in composition, structure or form, workmanship and finish. Representatives of the owners, architects and contractors of the submitted projects came to Vienna to receive the award.

In the category "Building" the EUROPEAN CONCRETE AWARD 2014 goes to the project "Trollstigen Plateau", Norway.
