Roadstone wins at the Irish Concrete Society Awards

The Vaulted House

Roadstone is delighted to have won two significant awards at the Irish Concrete Society Awards, which took place on the 24th of March in the Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road, Dublin.

The Awards recognise excellence in both design and construction of concrete and are adjudicated by a distinguished, independent jury of industry professionals. The main awards jury reviewed a total of twenty-seven projects nominated in three categories.

Roadstone was firstly presented with an award for the supply of concrete to the landmark Páirc Uí Chaoimh Stadium in Cork, which was the Infrastructure Category Winner.

On the project the jury commented, “This is a project of scale and impact and it dominates the local area. The vertical concrete elements and the excellent precast cladding panels captured the jury’s attention. There is also the row after row of precast concrete seating and terraces all completed to a high standard. This concrete tiered infrastructure surrounding is a worthy winner”.

Páirc Uí Chaoimh

The second award was for the supply of concrete to The Vaulted House, Dublin, which was also the Overall Category Winner.

Marking this prestigious award the jury had the following to say about the project, “The terrazzo flooring in the existing building may have been the spark that set the client, designers and contractors down a road that delivered an exceptional building that has concrete features throughout. The client was brave and gave a complete vote of confidence to the design team and the contractor.

There are many architectural exposed concrete elements that could have been submitted, fair faced walls, columns, soffits, and beams; the dramatic board marked beams internally and externally; the extensive use on terrazzo on the floors and stairs. The concrete theme continued into the garden with a board marked concrete shed, planter boxes, barbeque and even an in situ concrete table. Even a concrete worktop and sink.

The vaulted concrete ceiling could well have been overpowering and cold. However, the attention to detail in the design and the craftwork and passion from the contractor have resulted in an exceptional feature in a very beautiful modern home”.

Congratulations to all involved in these fantastic projects.
