Recognised for its sustainability credentials, including the use of timber from fast-growing, FSC® certified sources as well as retaining Cradle to Cradle Gold certification for the seventh year running, Accoya has been shortlisted within the award’s ‘Best Sustainable Technology or Product’ category.

Accoya wood has also been acknowledged for its benefits as an exterior product in being nominated for the ‘Best Cladding System or Product’ award. The Accoya process results in improved levels of durability and stability in comparison to many other timber products.

The awards, conducted in association with BuildStore, recognise the very best in architecture, design and material performance within the industry. Designed to highlight excellence in the industry, they aim to inspire and help architects, designers and joiners find the right products for their project.

Laura Keily, Head of Marketing for Accsys Group commented: “It is an honour to be recognised by the Build It Awards in not one, but two categories in this year’s shortlist. Being included within the sustainability category, as well as an applied usage category is fantastic as it really shows the various practical and sustainable benefits Accoya wood offers. We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed ahead of the upcoming ceremony!”

The awards will be announced in a ceremony hosted by comedian, Marcus Brigstocke, on 22nd September 2017.
