The FeRFA Awards 2018


The FeRFA Awards 2018

For architects, manufacturers and contractors alike, the FeRFA awards are one awards ceremony that can’t be missed.

The Resin Flooring Association (FeRFA) represents major businesses and organisations involved in resin flooring, screeding and surface preparation. Being the only organisation of its kind, FeRFA endorses training and information on all things resin flooring and assessed materials in accordance with the RIBA CPD Providers Network.

Each year, FeRFA’s awards ceremony celebrates the best of the industry’s achievements over the past twelve months, awarding those who have outshone the competition over a number of categories.

The five different award categories are designed to recognise the innovation, diversity and workmanship shown by its members.

The award’s categories remain the same as 2017, with the Specialist Apprentice Award being replaced by the Innovation Award, which is open to all members of FeRFA, including manufacturers, contractors and associates. The project based awards are all submitted jointly by both the flooring manufacturer and applicator together.

So what does it take for projects to be considered for the awards?

For the Small Industrial Project of the Year, the criteria stipulates that this is for flooring installations in an area of no larger than 1,000 m2, whilst the Large Industrial Project of the Year is for spaces over 1,000 m2. The criteria for the Small Commercial Project of the Year is for resin flooring installations in a 250 m2 space or smaller whilst the Large Commercial Project of the Year is for spaces over 250 m2. The Innovation Award will be judged on a company’s success through the introduction of an innovative product, process or step, which has delivered business improvements and/or technological step change.

This year, former England rugby player Kyran Bracken has been confirmed to host the 2018 awards dinner, held at St Johns Hotel in Birmingham on Friday 23rd November. With the event fast approaching, FeRFA has wasted no time in announcing those who are shortlisted for the awards.
