Both the profession and the public value quality architecture and high-quality workmanship. The investments implemented by Jánosik és Társai Kft. win the prestigious, domestic and international awards one after another. One of their most recent trophies is the International Award in the Architecture category of the Big See Award for the redefinition of the spaces of the workshop hall, built on the campus of the University of Miskolc, built in the 1960’s. This building renovation is expected to have a chance at the grand prize in October this year. The owner of Jánosik és Társai Kft., Lajos Jánosik, made a statement about the recognitions.
During the university investment, new research sites were created in the building hosting the newly established Center for Advanced Materials and Smart Technologies Higher Education Industrial Cooperation (FIEK), as well as an Innovation and Start-up Center. Youthful, inspiring spaces that strengthen creative energies, but are also suitable for representation, were created. It was not only the construction of the new innovation center of the University of Miskolc that was awarded. The concept of putting quality above all else has brought results to the company’s success. Previously, they received a Prix d’Excellence Award for the renovation of the nursery school named ‘Rece-fice Óvoda és Manóvár’ in Kőbánya, where the general contractor was Jánosik Kft.
The prestigious recognition in the public building category was awarded by the professional jury. Awarding also took into account design, use of materials and construction. In the opinion of the jury, the new facade made the entire facility modern and architecturally valuable in appearance. The most important aspect was to create a playful, homey, aesthetic, interesting and stimulating environment for children of different age groups. The colourful, varied look on both the exterior and interior areas served this purpose. The renovated Galyatető lookout tower and tourist center has won the audience price of one of the largest architectural competitions of the world.
The Architizer A+ Awards prize is a very prestigious international recognizion, founded by architizer.com
, an American architectural news portal together with the Wall Street Journal Magazine and Webby. A professional jury selected the best candidates in more than a hundred categories. For the Galyatető lookout tower, the renovation of which was performed by Jánosik és Társai Kft., votes could be submitted in the Renovation category, and thanks to the voters, it managed to won the audience prize. The special site required several special procedures for construction. The construction took place in an area subject to environmental protection, so increased attention was paid to protecting the environment. For example, a tower crane could not be used to build the new lookout section.
The new part of the tower was constructed by hand with small panel shutters. During the work, the workers have paid special attention to the environment, protecting the existing trees and vegetation. The reconstruction of the lookout tower corresponding to the height of a 10-storey residential building involved special preparations. The company’s core values include continuous renewal and development, based on the latest technologies and innovative solutions. That is why the company is successfully bidding for new contracts requiring complex construction, using exceptional technologies and modern building materials – said Lajos Jánosik.
