To promote sustainable projects created using clay pavers
We are introducing the Vande Moortel Clay Paver Awards in order to promote and support unique designs using clay pavers. Projects that rise to challenges such as sustainability, accessibility, cost efficiency and more.
It is therefore our belief that high-quality baked clay pavers belong in such environments. That is why we want to draw attention to projects – both big and small, public and private – realised using our pavers and reward the people who designed them.
