THE FINALISTS of the Liquid Roofing and Waterproofing Association (LRWA) Awards 2023 have been announced.
A total of 20 projects have been shortlisted by an independent judging panel, including specifiers and technical experts. Spanning four categories, the LRWA Awards finalists were selected based on strict criteria. These included: project complexity, standard of workmanship, evidence of problem solving, and aesthetics. The names of the contractor and manufacturer in each entry were also omitted prior to judging.
LRWA Gala Dinner
The winners will be announced at a gala dinner on 22 March 2023 at the Titanic Hotel in Liverpool’s Stanley Dock. Backed by several supporters, including headline sponsor, Proteus Waterproofing, the event is set to be the LRWA’s biggest yet. To meet the high demand for tickets, the association is working with the venue to increase capacity.
The gala dinner will also recognise the talents of individuals with awards for Trainer of the Year, and Student of the Year, as well as a Chairman’s Recognition Award for a special contribution to the liquid roofing and waterproofing industry.
Sarah Spink, CEO of the LRWA, said: “We received a great spread of projects this year across every category, showcasing how versatile liquids are across sectors ranging from residential through to healthcare. The complexity of the work delivered was particularly impressive, demonstrating the skills of roofing contractors across the UK and their commitment to delivering the highest standards for their clients.
“We are really looking forward to revealing the winners in March and celebrating the quality, professionalism and workmanship that is at the heart of our industry and making it so successful.
“With such strong competition this year, all those shortlisted should be very proud of their achievement and we wish them all the best of luck.”
