Categories

There are six categories in the 13th Saint-Gobain Gypsum International Trophy :

New for the 13th edition 2023! Sustainability covers a broader spectrum than before and will be applied to all six categories Innovation is a stand-alone category.

Category Plasterboard

Projects within the interior spaces of a new building, or of an existing building. The type of buildings and performances are not defined or limited. Projects can vary from interiors for single small buildings to very large complex projects, and do not necessarily consider specific performances relevant to any sector. Recognition is given to the technical application of plasterboard solutions and where plasterboard systems have been used in place of traditional materials. They may comprise walls, ceilings and floors.

Category Plaster

The plaster category comprises all projects where Gypsum plaster products and systems are applied resulting in unique interiors, exteriors and highest quality surface finishing (even under the toughest lighting conditions). From traditional handwork to machine applied projection and plasterboard finishing, all outstanding plastering interior solutions may be submitted within this category. Special attention will be given to the use of plaster as a replacement for other materials used traditionally.

Category Residential

Projects within the interior spaces of a new building, or of an existing building in the residential sector. They can vary in size from small to very large projects, but they must display the use of performance based systems or aesthetic enhancements relevant to the sector. The application of gypsum solutions in the interiors of these buildings may comprise walls, ceilings and floors. This category is not linked to a specific product type, so either plasterboard, plaster, ceiling or a combination of all can join this category.

Category Innovation

Innovation is characterized by the use of products and or systems in an unusual way. For instance, products which are new on the local market, which demonstrate new ways to install with improved performance for the installer (quicker and/or easier) or which show new ways to improve wellbeing for people using the space, such as thermal & acoustic comfort, Indoor air quality and so on. This category is not linked to a specific product type, so either plasterboard, plaster, ceiling or a combination of all can join this category.

Category Non-residential

Projects within interior spaces of a new building, or of an existing building in the non-residential sector: offices, retail, leisure, education (i.e. school), healthcare (i.e. hospital) and hospitality (i.e. hotel). They can vary in size from small to very large projects but they must uniquely display the use of performance based systems relevant to the sector. The application of gypsum solutions in the interiors of these buildings may comprise walls, ceilings and floors. This category is not linked to a specific product type, so either plasterboard, plaster, ceiling or a combination of all can join this category.

Category Ceilings

Projects within interior spaces of a new building, or of an existing building where Saint-Gobain Gypsum Ceilings have been used. The type of segment within this category may be chosen freely. Other Saint-Gobain ceilings such as mineral wool (e.g. Ecophon or Eurocoustic) or metal ceilings (e.g. Plafometal) will add points of recognition. The projects featured in this category should be focused on ceilings, as key fundamental features (e.g. aesthetic, durability, acoustic, indoor air quality, sustainability, etc.). The application of ceilings solutions in the interior of the buildings may also consist of wall linings with ceiling products.

Prizes

The International Jury will nominate the winners of the 15 prizes: the 1st and the 2nd Prize in each category (12 prizes), the Grand Prix: for the overall winner of all categories, the President’s Prize: the Jury’s “Coup de Coeur”, the Facade Prize: new in the 2023 edition, a special recognition to the best scored project which includes a Gypsum facade system (e.g. Glasroc® X, Aquaroc®), even using Isover and Weber products.
