Insight Data, the leading data supplier to the glazing and building industry, has done the ‘business award double’ and been shortlisted for the prestigious government backed Enterprise Agency ‘Sian Lloyd Jones Business of the year Awards’ for a second time.

Insight also made the finals in 2009, making them

the only company to be nominated twice. Insight’s Commercial Director Helen Costeloe-Hughes comments on the news: “The Business of the Year Awards is an accolade that recognises business growth, investment and innovation, and I’m delighted Insight Data has made the finals again following another successful period for the company.”

“Since our last nomination in 2009 Insight has more than doubled in size. We’ve had huge investment in technology and research, expanded our services and employed 12 new staff. Our customer base has also grown dramatically across Europe, with the number of users subscribed to our online database, Salestracker, growing from 200 to almost 550. It is these factors that impressed the judges and resulted in our nomination for an unprecedented second time,” adds Helen.

Insight Data was established in 2006 and is the specialist supplier of prospect data and database marketing services for the glazing and building products industry, with detailed prospect information on fabricators, installers, conservatory companies, IGU manufacturers, architects and local builders.

The G11 Awards has attracted some of the industry’s leading companies who have signed up as main event sponsors including Pilkington EnergiKare™, SGG Planitherm®


the Glass & Glazing Federation, Veka, Thermoseal and FENSA.

Other high profile names to sign up to various packages include Bohle Ltd,

Edgetech and Quotatis. In addition to the usual sponsorship opportunites, this year’s G11 Awards has introduced a number of new packages designed to entertain G11 Awards Presentation & Gala Dinner guests.

The Awards provide the industry with an opportunity during the year to recognise publicly the companies that are leading the way into 2012 in terms of excellence and innovation.

Nigel Rees of the GGF, a long-standing supporter of the G-Awards, said: “The G Awards are the key date in the calendar of the UK glass and glazing industry and the Glass & Glazing Federation is delighted to have supported the event for many years.”

“It is important - crucial in fact - that the industry has somewhere to meet and celebrate during the year, to relax together, to dress up and enjoy the sheer occasion of the G Awards.”

“It is also important that the G Awards

provides a focus on what is good about our industry, the successes, the commitment and celebration of excellence that may otherwise be overlooked.”

“In these times of difficult trading conditions it is all too easy for us to dwell on the negatives; The G Awards offers an

opportunity for us to look outwards, to consider what we are doing well individually and collectively, applaud it and have a thoroughly enjoyable time celebrating it!”

Pilkington Spacia™ has been recognised by World Architecture News (WAN) and awarded the Product of the year 2011.

The revolutionary vacuum glazing technology

provides unrivalled thermal performance in a thin profile unit that fits seamlessly into both older traditional properties to retain the aesthetics in existing frames or as a stylish solution for new builds.

The WAN Awards is an annual event looking at high-performing products and innovative developments in the construction sector. Judges in this year’s product category included: Dr. Zoe Laughlin, Creative Director, Institute of Making (a multidisciplinary research club for those interested in the made world) and Paul Baker, Director, Wilkinson Eyre.

A BIG LEAP FORWARD Damian Rogan, Associate at Buro Happold,

was also on the panel and deeply impressed by Pilkington Spacia™ declaring: “It is a great product! It is the big leap forward that we have been waiting some time for; in improving thermal forms of windows and in a minimum depth. The potential to replace existing single-glazed sash windows with a double-glazed vacuum unit with the same thickness is a bonus and will lead to improving performance in existing buildings.”

Pilkington Spacia™ was up against some stiff

competition, from a range of LED Modules, an energy-efficient cable tray system and an air movement solution.

Julia Berkin, Marketing Communications Manager said, “Pilkington Spacia™ is an innovative glazing product that enables specifiers to retain the original look of a property without compromising on energy efficiency. A number of period properties across the UK that were losing copious amount of energy via their windows have been refurbished in line with government targets and successfully maintained their listed status. The product has also been installed in a variety of new build properties, offering a stylish and aesthetically pleasing alternative to standard double glazing. We are extremely proud of the recognition this product has received by World Architecture News and their panel of judges and hope to continue this success in the future.” »
