THE WORSHIPFUL Company of Tylers and Bricklayers is inviting nominations for its Triennial Awards to recognise and honour outstanding slating and tiling and excellent roofing projects, as well as for individuals training for NVQs and higher qualifications in the craft.
Projects within the bounds of the M25 are eligible to be nominated for the Triennial Awards . Due to the pandemic, the next Triennial Awards will honour the best examples completed within the four years prior to 15 February 2021.
Worshipful Company of Tylers and Bricklayers
As one of the ancient Livery Companies of the City of London, the Worshipful Company of Tylers and Bricklayers has roots going back to the 1400s. The Company received its first Royal Charter in 1568, and its Livery (membership) currently stands at approximately 150.
In addition to the Triannual Awards, the organisation also makes Craft Awards to roofing college students. These are to the students who come through the regional heats of the annual SkillBuild competition.
The Company also recognises those who achieve higher levels of competence in the crafts of roof tiling and slating through a combination of their own training, practical site experience and a willingness to assist in the training of others. This recognition takes the form of the award of Master Craftsman status at the Company’s Craft Awards Luncheon in March each year.
