Civic offices scoop galvanizing award

Posted on by in News

The new Civic Offices for Cork City Council designed by ABK Architects was named the overall winner of the 2008 and 16th annual Hot Dip Galvanizing Awards.

The building which provides 9,200m² of office space, together with 140 car park spaces also picked up the Sustainability award. The judges said crystalline glass and galvanized steel have been used to create a building that fits into its local context with ease.

This year saw the launch of new category awards: the Galvanizing in Architecture winner was Consort Road, Peckham; the Galvanizing in Engineering winner was Singing Ringing Tree, Burnley; the Galvanizing in Detail winner was Briery Meadow Arbour; and the Duplex award went to Emanuel School, Wandsworth.
