Today, drywall and gypsum-based systems are currently present in almost all architectural works. These allow you to coat buildings with products that combine, among other attributes, construction ease, fire safety and the possibility of recycling, both in historic structures or completely new constructions. Since 1998, Saint-Gobain – one of the largest distributors of these types of systems – has awarded the projects that best apply them in their solutions, dividing them into 6 categories (Ceilings, Plaster, Plasterboard, Innovation & Sustainability, Residential, and Non-Residential). The submitted projects are meant to demonstrate how the architects managed to ingeniously unite the company’s products with innovative solutions to overcome each of the difficulties that the works or contexts impose.

In its 12th edition, participants came from 30 different countries and showcased 74 projects. See the 14 awardees below:

Grand Prix

Project: Residential Building Pontsteiger
Country: The Netherlands
Contractor: Schuurmans Afbouwsystemen BV

Residential Building Pontsteiger is the new iconic Amsterdam landmark in the Houthaven-district (the former timber port, representing the new gate to Amsterdam). In this building, high demands were applied on comfort, resonances and vibrations, impact sound insulation, impact and burglary resistance. The drywall solutions were entirely designed in BIM, and only half of the originally planned labor was needed for installation. Extensive and detailed planning was required, since each apartment had to be treated individually; Schuurmans Afbouwsystemen BV handled 66 ‘mini projects’ within this project.

Great technical skill and knowledge of interior and exterior systems were required in order to optimize fire protection, thermal and acoustic insulation and exterior closing with Aquaroc® cement boards and interior finishing with Habito® systems, that provides superior acoustic insulation.
