Roto has been listed as a finalist in two categories at the London Construction Awards, which take place later in October.
The nomination is a result of the Roto Patio Inowa sliding system being used on two prestigious residential towers and helping contribute towards energy energy efficiency and sustainability. Roto is nominated for both the Sustainable Construction Award and the London Build Excellence Award.
In a partnership with aluminium systems brand Schüco, around 1,000 sliding units have been specified for One Park Drive, a residential tower in the Wood Wharf development designed by Herzog de Meuron. A further 600 units are on profiles designed by Wicona for the brand new residential skyscraper at Newfoundland Quay on the Western edge of the Canary Wharf site.
The London Construction Awards recognises achievements, developments and innovation within the London construction industry. As well as contractors, architects and developers, many categories are open to providers of products and technology.
Vesa Nenye, Roto Business Development Manager for the UK, is very pleased with the nominations. “This is really encouraging news”, he said. “Right from the start we knew Patio Inowa is a special product because it is unique. The closing action and all round locking means very tall installations can be placed on high rise buildings and still provide weather-sealing like nothing else on the market”.
“Roto Patio Inowa has been used on projects all over the world, including in Mexico and Australia, and now it is really exciting to see the advantages of Patio Inowa recognised by the construction industry in Britain”, he said.
“The London skyline is growing, with a large number of iconic and energy efficient buildings being built and many more planned”, he added. “This is the forefront of modern construction, so the fact that we can be nominated for awards alongside the developers and technology providers in the sector shows Roto’s premium brand position”.
A panel of industry experts will judge the finalists and the winners will be announced at a gala dinner at the 5 Star Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington on 23 October.
