The UK Roofing Awards have become an industry-wide event that recognise and reward outstanding standards of workmanship and safety within the roofing industry.
The competition, covering the full spectrum of 12 roofing disciplines, runs from September to January every year and thereafter a selection of projects are short-listed. In May, at The UK Roofing Awards Congress Luncheon, the winners are announced. A range of criteria are taken into consideration by the judging panel including: degree of difficulty, aesthetics, problem-solving, Health & Safety, workmanship and environmental qualities.
The Congress itself is made up of two parts: the Awards Lunch and the Evening Dinner Dance. The Awards commence with a drinks reception (which has become an excellent networking opportunity); then a three course lunch and followed by the Awards Ceremony. As well as the Roofing Award winners, prizes are also given in Health & Safety, Training and Youth competitions. In the evening the Dinner Dance takes place. This begins with a drinks reception and then a four course meal and followed by surprise entertainment and finishes off with dancing into the early hours.
The winners will be announced on Friday 15th May at the UK Roofing Awards Luncheon at the Hilton London Metropole on Edgware Road. This year’s host is BBC’s Louise Minchin. Places can be booked from January 2015.
