LONDON/UK - The British Construction Industry Awards 2012, honoured ACO Water Management with an award for Product Design Innovation, at their 25th anniversary event held at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane on 10th October 2012.
ACO Water Management received the award for StormBrixx, its innovative, sustainable stormwater management solution. The award winning ACO StormBrixx is a unique, patented, plastic geocellular stormwater attenuation and infiltration system, manufactured from recycled polypropylene. It is applicable across all construction environments as a standalone solution or as part of an integrated sustainable drainage (SuDS) scheme.
RT Hon Michael Fallon MP, Minister of State for Business and Enterprise, joined 900 elite members of the British construction industry at the event, to recognise overall excellence in the delivery of building and civil engineering infrastructural products and projects, during the past year.
A notable industry accolade, the BCIA recognises ACO's ability to demonstrate a creative and unique solution to issues that customers have faced from traditional alternatives. ACO StormBrixx is tailor made for use within a SuDS scheme and its distinct, stackable design is innately cost-efficient in terms of transportation and storage. Fundamentally, the system minimises the financial and carbon footprint costs of all involved.
Following rigorous assessment, the awarding judges' comments highlighted the innovative nature of the ACO system. 'Detailed market analysis and an understanding of customer needs have truly reinvented an existing product type. StormBrixx meets clients' needs and provides a solution that otherwise might have been overlooked'.
Commenting on this momentous win, Managing Director at ACO, Richard Hill, said, "It is an incredible feeling winning this award and I am delighted to congratulate our talented and resourceful product development team. Our intensive effort to constantly innovate new products is the key to our success. StormBrixx is now a key aspect of our SuDS offering, it's a future focused product that meets a genuine need."
