The UK Roofing Awards is once again set to present the industry’s highest accolade to outstanding roofing contractors recognising and rewarding first-rate standards of workmanship and technical excellence across the roofing industry.
The highlight of the UK roofing industry calendar, the UK Roofing Awards 2019 takes place on 10 May 2019 at the InterContinental London-The O2, hosted by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC).
The awards scheme, which is in its 13th consecutive year, is the most prestigious in the roofing sector and celebrates the very best in the industry across 14 categories. The categories highlight beautiful structures, outstanding workmanship, superior problem solving, environmental qualities and contribution to the built environment.
It will also see the return of the popular Industry Choice Award, Local Hero Award, plus the introduction of the Young Roofer of the Year Award, which celebrates the achievements of the industry’s newcomers.
Once again, entries can be submitted through an online system designed to make the entry procedure user-friendly and seamless for busy contractors, architects and others.
The deadline for entries is 26 January 2019. Visit www.roofingawards.co.uk and submit your project today.
The UK Roofing Awards has continued to receive valuable support from all its industry sponsors without whom the event would not be the success it has been. Once again, SIG Roofing is Headline Sponsor and sponsor of the Local Hero Award demonstrating its commitment to showcasing excellence in roofing and recognising the achievements of roofing operatives.
James Talman, the NFRC’s Chief Executive said: “Regardless of the shape, size, budget or location of the project, everyone’s participation is welcome and multiple entries may be submitted. Architects, specifiers and builders are also eligible to enter, providing they are working with members of supporting trade associations.
“We are also grateful for the continued support from industry sponsors who have shown their commitment to recognising the dedication and passion demonstrated by roofing contractors and suppliers, day in and day out. SIG Roofing, this year’s Headline Sponsor, continues to provide invaluable assistance in the development of the event.”
Representing over 70% of the roofing industry by value and volume, NFRC is the largest and most influential roofing trade association in the UK and its primary aim is to promote quality contractors and quality products, ensuring that is members are at the forefront of all roofing developments.
Stuart Base, Marketing Director of SIG Roofing, said: “We are thrilled to be Headline Sponsor for the awards again. They are a highlight in the roofing calendar that showcase the excellent standards of roofing projects completed each year in the UK.
“Last year we sponsored ‘Local Hero Award’ because we are keen to recognise the activities of contractors that can go unnoticed, such as working on community projects for free, and we continue to sponsor this important category.”
