“Architects’ Darling” in the category “Ventilation”

Stiebel Eltron wins “construction industry Oscar”

The most popular manufacturer among German architects in the category “Ventilation and air conditioning” is: Stiebel Eltron! At a festive gala the building services company from Lower Saxony was awarded the coveted “Architects’ Darling® Award”. Prior to this 1,600 architects and planners had given their expert opinion.

Marketing manager Claus Kroll-Schlüter, advertising manager Fatima Freitas and Henning Schulz from corporate communication (from left) received the coveted “Architects’ Darling® Award” on behalf of Stiebel Eltron.

For the sixth time in a row in the largest German industry survey more than 200 manufacturers from the construction industry were critically judged by the most important decision-makers in the construction industry – architects and planners. The readers of the Heinze journal for architects, further architecture trade journals and visitors to the trade portals heinze.de and baunetz.de were invited to vote.

“We are delighted to receive this award”, says Claus Kroll-Schlüter, marketing manager. “Architects are an important point of contact for many builders in questions relating to energy-efficient and sustainable building. Controlled ventilation with heat recovery plays a key role in the construction of new residential housing and is also becoming increasingly important for existing housing. The ‘Architects’ Darling’ award shows that not only does Stiebel Eltron offer the right products and systems, but also the right service. This includes extensive information and useful tools that are always available online, general and customised documentation or planning support on request.” During a festive gala the prizes were handed over by Dr Thomas Welter, chairman of the Association of German Architects (BDA), and Jörg Kreuder, sales director at Heinze.

Stiebel Eltron won the award in the category “Ventilation” for the second time in a row as the German manufacturer of quality products came first in this category in 2014 as well. Furthermore, in 2012 the company ranked first in the category “Renewable energies”, which means that there are three “construction industry Oscars” on display in Holzminden.
