Solarcentury – a specialist in solar electric solutions for homes and businesses – scooped two awards at the Interbuild 2004 New Product Awards on Tuesday night.

The London-based company won the Exterior Product Award for its C21 Solar Roof Tile and the Best Lighting and Electrical Product Award for the Streetsmart Solar Lighting Solution.

Awards in seven categories, plus one award for Best Overall Product, were presented by BBC Breakfast TV’s Natasha Kaplinsky during a gala dinner held at the end of day two of the five-day event.

The chief executive officer of Solarcentury, Jeremy Leggett, said: “This is an amazing achievement for us. We’ve still got a long way to go but after just five years and at the first year of the awards, we couldn’t have thought that we’d be challenging companies that have been key figures in the industry for many years.”

Other winners included Terry Group, which won the Disability Access Award for its Portable Lift, Aladdin Auto Vent, which won the Energy Efficiency Award and SF Detection, whose SF350 carbon monoxide detector landed the Best Interior Product prize.

The Best On-Site Product award went to Modar for its Base apartment unit and Antec from Interbuild’s sister-show Civils won both the Best Civils Product and the Best Overall Product.

Construction minister Nigel Griffiths officially opened Interbuild on Monday, describing the event as a showcase of the “best of British” construction.

The show has attracted visitors from 20 countries, with which Griffiths hopes to see the attending 1,200 companies form contracts.
