UK Roofing Awards 2020 Online Judging

Owing to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, the live event that was previously scheduled for 28th May 2021 was not able to take place as planned.

However, due to the high-calibre of all of the entries, NFRC felt that it was essential that the judging of the awards still went ahead, and for the first time, this was done entirely online by a panel of highly regarded industry figures.

James Talman CEO NFRC

Commenting on the announcement of the winners of the UK Roofing Awards 2020, NFRC CEO James Talman said: “On behalf of everyone at NFRC, I want to warmly congratulate all of the UK Roofing Awards 2020 prize winners. The judges were very impressed by the high level of craftsmanship, attention to detail and innovation in the projects this year. The winning projects all show our industry at its best—and everyone involved should be truly proud.

“Behind every great project are great people, and that is why I am delighted we have three awards to recognise individuals in our industry—the Young Roofer of the Year, Local Hero, and Health and Safety Individual awards. The winners of these awards are a real inspiration to us all.

“I would like to thank all of our sponsors who supported the Awards despite us not being able to hold a live event. Particularly our Headline Sponsor, Radmat Building Products, our Awards Knowledge Partner, SIG Roofing, all the category sponsors, our Associate Sponsor, Cromar Building Products and our Awards Industry Partner, QANW

“For those who didn’t win a prize this time, we will soon be opening nominations for the UK Roofing Awards 2021, which will be taking place on 5 November, so make sure you keep an eye on the Roofing Awards website for this announcement.”

Kept Our Industry Going

Robert Speroni MD Radmat Building Products Ltd

Robert Speroni, Managing Director, Radmat Building Products said: “As we approach the end of 12 months like no other in living memory, the UK Roofing Awards 2020 seem like the perfect opportunity to applaud everyone who has kept our industry going, despite the challenges of a global pandemic and post-Brexit Britain.

“The UK Roofing Awards are all about celebrating our industry at its best, and that is why Radmat is delighted to be supporting the awards again this year, despite there not being a live event. The calibre of the entries has been outstanding, and on behalf of everyone at Radmat I want to congratulate the well-deserved prize winners.  The team at Radmat all look forward to celebrating the 2021 awards in person later this year.”
