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.
