The 2015 Builder and Engineer Awards are poised to celebrate a highly successful year in the industry. Now in its twelfth year, IG Masonry Support is delighted to have been shortlisted for the heavily sought after Product of the Year award.
Taking place in The Point, Old Trafford, Manchester on Thursday 19th November, IG Masonry Support has also been shortlisted for Product of the Year for their Brick Slip Masonry Support Systems.
The revolutionary new product provides simple onsite installation of complex brick detailing, offering up to a 90% reduction of on-site labour and a 70% weight saving against alternative traditional methods. The product is highly flexible, with architects already designing new shapes for brick soffits not possible under old installation methods.
Part of the Keystone Group, IG Masonry Support Systems was set up in 2013 and operates from both Derbyshire and Cookstown. The company has grown rapidly with success in supplying some of the UK’s leading contractors as designers adopt the product on a range of high-profile projects.
Owen Coyle, IG Masonry Support Systems General Manager, said of the achievement:
“We are naturally thrilled to be recognised for this commitment to innovation within the building and engineer industry. Our Brick Slip Systems offer an innovative approach to problem solving, providing significant improvements in the installation process for masonry supports and associated brick details. IG’s extensive experience in structural construction products combined with investment in Research and Development has delivered a truly unique product.”
The Builder and Engineer Awards will take place on 19th November 2015. Winners will be announced live on the night and we wish all finalists the best of luck.
With Welsh rugby legend and pundit Jonathan Davies and TV and radio presenter Hugh Ferris compering the evening, it looks set to be an excellent night for all.
