On 9 November, the winners of the Architects’ Darling® Awards, the largest industry survey in Germany, were chosen at a celebratory gala.

This year almost 2000 architects and developers had their say on their favourites in the building industry. On 9 November, the winners of the Architects’ Darling® Awards, the largest industry survey in Germany, were chosen at a celebratory gala.

Schüco International KG received two awards in the competition: the company won the coveted golden phoenix in the category for security technology and access control systems. The special Crade-to-Cradle prize, one of eleven awards, was awarded for the first time by a jury of experts, with the bronze accolade also going to Schüco.

The Heinze Architects’ Darling® Award 2017 marks the seventh year in a row that architects’ and developers’ favourite building product manufacturers have been recognised. In this year’s competition, the specialists had to decide between 200 brands in 24 product categories – more than ever before.

The winners of the largest industry survey in Germany received their awards on 9 November in Celle as part of the “Celle working day”. “We are delighted to receive the golden phoenix in the category for security technology and access control systems,” revealed Joachim Grau, Head of Building Automation and Ventilation Systems.

“Particularly since this demonstrates that our partners, architects and developers have faith in our product range. Our daily push for innovation, quality, reliability and service is therefore bearing fruit.”

 

Sustainability award

The winning of the bronze “Cradle-to-Cradle” award is also cause for celebration and encouragement. This year’s special prize was awarded as one of eleven awards by a jury of experts composed of representatives from scientific and practical backgrounds and top international architects.

The phoenix was presented by Professor Michael Braungart, developer of the Cradle-to-Cradle design concept. “In the building industry, we are pioneers in the development of C2C-certified products – we are delighted that our efforts for more sustainability and corporate responsibility have now been recognised with the bronze award,” explained Stefan Rohrmus, Sustainability Manager.
