Unicel Architectural wins top honors from Interactive Media Awards™ for architect-focused website


Website dedicated to providing high-value vision and daylight control insights and specifications for architects and designers

MONTREAL, CANADA – December 7, 2010 — Unicel Architectural, the leading manufacturer of aluminum and glass solutions, announced today that it has been awarded Outstanding Achievement in Website Development by the New York-based Interactive Media Awards™ (IMA) for its website dedicated to providing architects with information on vision and daylight control solutions. The award recognizes standards of excellence that comprise the Web’s most professional work. The site was honored specifically for excellence in the “Building/Construction” category.

“We are committed to providing architects with all the tools they need to source and specify vision and daylight control solutions for the most discerning building requirements,” said Jean-Francois Couturier, CEO of Unicel Architectural. “We are delighted to have our work recognized by the Interactive Media Awards™. This award is further validation that Unicel is a leader in the industry, able to effectively develop a powerful and informative online venue for the architectural community.”

The judging consisted of various criteria, including design, usability, and innovation in technical features, standards compliance and content. In order to win this award level, the site had to meet strict guidelines in each area — an achievement only a fraction of sites in the IMA competition earn each quarter.

Continued Mr. Couturier: “The Interactive Media Awards are a highly sought-after prize, and this nod from IMA is a demonstration of our ability to generate world-class work for the benefit of architects. Being granted entry to such an exclusive club by IMA is testament to the true standards of excellence by which Unicel Architectural operates"

The new site is laid out in four key sections: Specialty Glazing, Skylights, Louvers and Custom Structures. These allow architects to quickly source the applicable solution, along with case studies, design applications and specifications. Visit:
