This year for the first time the NFRC have invited everyone to vote for their favourite project to receive an Industry Choice Award.

The Bund is in Salford’s Media City right next to the BBC and the Lowry, and frequently features in BBC broadcasts and tweets by people visiting the area. It has become a hugely popular building in the few short months since completion, and is swiftly becoming an icon of the Alchemist Brand and the Salford dockside.

Given the huge reception for the building, its innovative design, the first use in the UK of the beautiful elZinc Rainbow Gold Zinc roofing and cladding and the meticulous execution of the handmade details, we think the Bund is a worthy winner of Industry Choice.

Will you vote for it?
