Saint-Gobain are proud sponsors of this International Trophy, which aims to promote world class skills in drywall technology and plastering in construction projects, encouraging and recognizing contractors for their contribution to innovation in the industry.

The Saint-Gobain Gypsum International Trophy, established in 1998, is billed to be one of the largest international competitions of its kind, promoting excellence and innovation in the use of sustainable, lightweight plasterboard systems and plasters.

Projects are entered and judged in six categories including; plasterboard solutions, plasterer solutions, innovation and sustainable solutions, segment solutions (education/ hospitals/ hotels), residential and mixed use (commercial including leisure and retail).
