Awards 2016

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.

This year’s winners were revealed on Wednesday 29th June and presented by Helen Czerski science presenter for BBC. A very high standard of entries were received and the Association thanks all those who submitted an entry and particularly thanks the judges for their hard work in assessing them. All the shortlisted entrants gave a five minute presentation in the afternoon and  an award (sponsored by Robust Details) was given for the best presentation based on the votes of the audience.
