The search is on for the most innovative use of galvanizing in Architecture, Engineering, Detail, as a sustainable method or as a duplex coating, via the 2019 GAGA Awards competition.
The awards are open to all sectors, from construction and transport, through to the oil and gas industry. Winners will be announced at a ceremony to be held next June at the Royal Aeronautical Society, Hyde Park Corner, London.
Over the next six months, judges will be looking for the most creative, effective and technically ambitious use of hot dip galvanizing in a recently completed project, across 5 categories: Galvanizing in Architecture, Galvanizing in Engineering, Galvanizing in Detail, Sustainable Galvanizing and the Duplex Award.
We conceived of the GAGAs as a way to acknowledge and support the architects, consultant engineers and constructors behind this continued evolution.
Iqbal Johal, Marketing Manager at Galvanizers Association says: “The process of dipping steelwork into molten zinc for anti-corrosion purposes has a two hundred year long history and yet remains at the vanguard of contemporary architecture, engineering and product design the world over. We conceived of the GAGAs as a way to acknowledge and support the architects, consultant engineers and constructors behind this continued evolution. We are excited to see what this year’s innovators have achieved.”
“Aside from being welcoming and celebratory, our event is invaluable for bringing together expert practitioners from multiple sectors. Not only have these awards proven themselves as a successful way for our industry to say thank you, but they remain instrumental in setting the standard for future projects.”
