Nominated for seven awards in total, Lafarge Tarmac took first prize in three categories – Best Campaign over GPB25,000, Best Social Media Campaign and Best Mobile Campaign – beating stiff competition from major players including Knauf Insulation and British Gypsum.

Lafarge Tarmac was also commended in two categories, Best Product Launch and Best Branding and Positioning.

Its popular @LoveCement programme, reaching out to builders, merchants and DIY-ers through twitter, YouTube and blogs has been a highlight of Lafarge Tarmac’s award success this year, along with its pioneering range of plastic tubs which were launched to the national market in October 2012, the company said in a statement.

The annual Construction Marketing Awards recognise excellence in the field of marketing in the construction industry.
