ICP Networks work promoting Green IT has been officially recognised at the star studded national Energy Awards in London.
The Cheshire based IT and Networking specialists were finalists in the influential Excellence in Demand Reduction award.
ICP Networks were cast very much in the David versus Goliath role as they were pitted against multi-nationals including N Power, Costain Group and Wessex Water for top spot in their category.
ICP Networks were selected for their work transforming a former warehouse shell into a stunning hi-tech eco-friendly global headquarters, already dubbed the ‘Greenest IT HQ’ in Britain.
“The other nominees are all enterprises of significantly larger scale to us, so to even be nominated in such a category at a national level is a massive, massive achievement, of which we’re all very proud.”
ICP Network were also regional finalists in the LABC Awards in May having being nominated in the Best Large Commercial Building.
The line up on that occasion included Manchester Airport new Air Traffic control tower, The Mann Island Project and Waters
Despite the fact that the size of the building projects ranged from 150 – 450 times larger than ICP’s own Lexicon House project the IT specialists were commended for their work and project management of the development.
