In recognition of the extremely busy time the industry is going through, the deadline for entering a project into the UK Roofing Awards 2021 has been extended by a week to 6 August 2021.
The criteria to enter an award is for the completion date of the project to have been between 1 January 2020 and 31 December 2020, but the judges have now clarified that projects whose completion was impacted by the pandemic will still be eligible, so as long as most of the work was undertaken in 2020.
Projects can be entered if they were completed by a roofing contractor who is a member of one of the following bodies:
Manufacturers, architects, and specifiers can also submit projects, but they must ensure the contractor is a member of one of the above specified bodies.
Entries can be made online at: https://nfrc.awardsplatform.com/
Commenting on the announcement, NFRC Head of Technical and Training Bob Richardson, who oversees the awards, said:
“We are going through an unprecedented period as an industry. We know how busy roofing contractors are currently, as well as all the additional pressures that are being faced at the moment, from material shortages to price rises to workers having to self-isolate due to being ‘pinged’. That is why we have taken the decision to give extra time for contractors to enter for an award.
“Nominating a project has never been more straightforward with our new online awards platform—so if you haven’t entered yet, why not make the most of this extra time to enter? With categories covering virtually all roofing disciplines, there is something in there for everyone.
“I would like to reiterate my thanks to all of the UK Roofing Awards 2021 sponsors who have made these awards possible—Radmat, BMI, SIG Roofing, QANW, Axter, GRO, Horrods, Chandlers, Sika, CUPA PIZARRAS, Marley, EJOT, Recticel Insulation, Fakro, Cromar, Metal Solutions, TN International and Siderise.”
