Excellence in the design and construction in concrete was evident again at this year’s Irish Concrete Society’s Awards Evening.

This was the prestigious 35th Awards Evening and the event is always one of the highlights in the construction industry’s calendar with some 280 of industry’s finest in attendance. The Awards recognise excellence in both design and construction in concrete and are adjudicated by an independent jury of industry professionals. The main awards jury reviewed a total of twenty-six projects nominated in three categories of main awards – Elemental, Infrastructure and Building. There were seven projects nominated for the 5th Irish Concrete Society International Award, which is sponsored by Enterprise Ireland. The winner of the annual Sean de Courcy Student Prize was also announced.

McKeon Group’s Hide Project with artist Garret Phelan and Client Fingal County Council was a runner up in the Elemental category but failed to pickup the award.
