Awards 2015

The ANC awards promote and recognise excellence among UK acoustic consultants and raise the profile of acoustics. The Awards look for examples of work that displays innovation, and originality in acoustic design or approach to a particular project.

A record number of entries were received and the standard was very high across all the categories.  The Association thanks all those who submitted an entry and particularly thanks the judges for their hard work in assessing them.

The winners were revealed on Wednesday 24th June at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Birmingham where awards were announced by guest speaker Philippa Forrester, former Tomorrow’s World presenter.
