Competing projects 2023
Every two years since 1998, the Saint-Gobain International Gypsum Trophy has been a unique international competition for Drywall systems projects using Saint-Gobain solutions.
Its aim is to celebrate the craftsmanship of contractors. The Gypsum Trophy is a major opportunity both for peer recognition and the promotion of craftsmanship in the international interior building community, as well as a great opportunity to stay close to our customers and promote innovative solutions for Saint-Gobain.
About the Trophy
It all started in Paris in 1998. Contractors from around the globe submit their most impressive Drywall systems and plaster based projects in the Saint-Gobain International Gypsum Trophy. This competition honors craftsmen, installers and plasterers, who use Saint-Gobain Gypsum solutions in sustainability (including comfort), safety, aesthetics, and modularity to build a better world. With this contest, we celebrate their accomplishments at one of the world’s biggest gypsum industry events.
