Every 2 years, European Concrete Societies Network (ECSN) organizes European Concrete Award to recognise excellence in the use of concrete in new structures in two categories – Building and Civil Engineering. The most important criteria are the uses of concrete in outstanding, aesthetic and excellent ways. Amongst others, all structures are judged against the following criteria: 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 and Workmanship and finish.
This year, 12 European projects that were completed within 2016-2017 were nominated in the Building category and DRN was awarded third place. The official presentation will take place in Helsinki at the beginning of November and each of the principal parties responsible for the structure will receive “Certificate of Excellence”. We would like to congratulate to SEBRE, Fiala+Němec, Němec Polák, Terracon and TBG Metrostav for this honourable achievement.
