The UK Roofing Awards, hosted by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC) have become an industry-wide event that recognises and rewards outstanding standards of workmanship and safety within the UK roofing sector. The annual awards are now in their twelfth year, bringing together and recognising roofing at its very best.
Here at BMI UK & Ireland we are proud of our involvement in the awards and believe in recognising and rewarding roofing talent, especially young roofers – who are the future of our sector. This is something we invest heavily in through our work at the National Training Centre, roofing colleges and our Apprentice of the Year competition and this year we’re very happy to partner with the NFRC on a new award that will give a young roofer the opportunity to be recognised.
The very first Young Roofer of the Year Award will be presented at the UK Roofing Awards 2019, held in London on 10th May 2019.
The Young Roofer of the Year award, will be awarded to a roofer or apprentice in recognition of their hard work and contribution to the roofing sector–through their approach, ability and skills.
Nominations can be made by anyone to recognise an apprentice, a qualified roofer with no more than 3 years’ experience or a roofing student.

BMI reveals roofing’s top 20 for the Apprentice of the Year final
Twenty of the country’s best roofing apprentices are gearing up for the two-day final that will see two of them awarded the prestigious title of either pitched or flat roofing BMI Apprentice of the Year 2019. Success in the competition identifies an apprentice as a stand-out individual and as someone with a bright future in the sector. Previous finalists have gone on to win multiple other awards, founded their own businesses or represented the industry and recruited new entrants as Construction Ambassadors with the CITB.
A PIECE OF HOME DELIVERED BY BMI REDLAND CAMBRIAN SLATE FOR PIONEERING HOSPICE
A first in the UK for its innovative use of reconstituted slate in a modern interlocking roofing material, the BMI Redland Cambrian Slate combines great traditional looks with great durability and cost-effectiveness; and so provided an ideal solution for roofing Butterfly House, an important and sensitively-designed £4.8 million hospice in High Wycombe.
Winners and contenders alike praise the BMI Apprentice of the Year competition
Each year, the BMI Apprentice of the Year competition helps apprentices on their journey to build their future career – by helping them with better business understanding, stronger communication skills and improved confidence. These are just some of the benefits that past winners and finalists of the BMI Apprentice of the Year competition have received and, as entries for the 2019 competition continue to arrive, some of past finalists have been reflecting upon the experience and what it taught them.
