Sponsors of Sustainability Architect of the Year, Armstrong Ceiling Solutions is the world’s leading, and most innovative, designer and manufacturer of ceiling, wall and suspension systems. Leading because it has more than 150 years’ experience in “Inspiring great spaces” and most innovative because its portfolio has evolved in a myriad of ways. An acknowledged expert in acoustics, occupant well-being has always been a focus, with specialist applications requiring anti-bacterial solutions, services integration, and humidity, fire and seismic-resistance also catered for to ensure optimal occupant comfort and wellness. Armstrong also clocked up a European-first in the ultimate in green certification – Cradle to Cradle™ status – while the high light reflectance of its tiles reduces a building’s dependence on artificial light. All this has been achieved without detriment to aesthetics, with the original mineral tile offering now enhanced by metal and wood, and canopy and wall systems. In addition, Armstrong pioneered ceiling recycling schemes in the UK 15 years ago and is still the only UK manufacturer to offer this service for ALL ceiling tiles, not just its own, and to contractors for free. Regardless of the application, whether it is commercial, education, healthcare, retail and leisure, or transport, Armstrong has the ceiling solution.
