EnviroBuild announced as finalists of the 2023 ICE Awards

EnviroBuild is proud to announce that the company was selected as a finalist at this year's edition of the prestigious ICE Awards. The company and its Sisu LVT flooring was nominated in the Construction Product Innovation - Building Fabric category. This is yet another indication of EnviroBuild's ever-growing reputation in designing and producing innovative, high performance products with a focus on sustainability.

Short for the Irish Construction Excellence Awards, the ICE Awards take place on a yearly basis and is the original and premier recognition of performance excellence for the contracting sector in Ireland. The ICE Awards provide an opportunity for the industry to showcase and reward best practice across the full range of construction disciplines and project categories. The awards ceremony took place on April 27th at the Convention Centre in Dublin, with an impressive Gala event hosted by Ireland's reigning Queen of Comedy, Deirdre O'Kane.

The spokesperson for EnviroBuild, Dr. Aidan Bell, is very pleased to hear that the vinyl flooring has been nominated for "Construction Product Innovation - Building Fabric". He said:

"We're always looking to bring in more sustainable practices in our work at EnviroBuild, and the changes we have made to Sisu LVT production in the past year is just the start. We're working towards a totally carbon neutral workplace in the near future by looking into all the possible channels to employ sustainable and renewable practices throughout our products and supply chains. We are absolutely thrilled to have been nominated for such a highly respected accolade at the ICE Awards this year."

EnviroBuild's Sisu LVT indoor flooring continues the brand's ethos of environmental sustainability. Its latest range of Sisu Luxury Vinyl Dry-Back Tiles are now the most sustainable LVT on the market in terms of Global Warming Potential and have been designed and manufactured using fully sustainable wind energy for the extraction of raw materials. Sisu is made using 100% recycled PVC that would otherwise go to landfill, therefore accounting for 12-23% of the total product being truly recycled (rather than post industrial waste offcuts). Such impressive values can be largely attributed to EnviroBuild conducting full cradle to grave Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) on all Composites, Sisu flooring and Manticore products, helping them to identify and tackle sustainability gaps in every one of their products. This has allowed the company to reduce their embodied carbon on all core products, including Sisu LVT flooring, which has achieved a 60% reduction in CO2e. The fact that EnviroBuild is the first company in the UK to publish the environmental impact of its composite products with an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) shows just how committed the business is to a sustainable future. EnviroBuild is also a proud member of World Land Trusts Carbon Balanced Programme, to offset their unavoidable emissions related to their general operations.

Not only is EnviroBuild's innovative indoor flooring good for the environment, it has a plethora of aesthetic and usability features as well. As well as being durable, light and easy to install with award-winning Ultrabond Eco adhesive, Sisu LVT flooring is both water-resistant and sound absorbing with a soft and warm underfoot, which is perfect for indoor applications. The flooring also comes with a 35-year residential warranty against wear-out, staining and fading (10-year for commercial use).

Dr. Aidan Bell has mentioned that EnviroBuild's presence in Ireland has grown in recent years. He stated:

"Architects across Ireland continue to express interest in using our products and we have already fulfilled several contracts in the country. We have expanded our team on the ground to cope with the extra workload already flowing, and expect to increase the size of the team in Ireland this year due to the greater uptake."

EnviroBuild's Sisu LVT flooring has been the recipient of numerous awards in recent years. Most recently the innovative vinyl indoor flooring was a finalist in the "Product Innovation of the Year" category at the 2022 London Construction Awards.
