The NFRC Scottish Roofing Awards luncheon took place on Friday, 28 October, at the Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow, celebrating a selection of the best of roofing, cladding and rainscreen projects in Scotland.

This was the return of the event that many had been looking forward to, after the awards for the last two years could not go ahead due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The judges rewarded standout projects for quality workmanship, innovation, strong supply chain management and impressive responses to challenges on the project.

It’s brilliant to return to celebrating great achievement in the Scottish roofing industry after two years away. The awards luncheon was a very enjoyable occasion and it was wonderful to be reunited with contractors, suppliers and merchants at an event dedicated to recognising the brilliant work they do.

He added:

Entries were of a very high standard this year, and we know that far more great work in the industry occurs than we can recognise every year—so to those that missed out this time, please do enter next year. We’re looking forward already to seeing the great work you do in the coming year.
