LRWA awards finalists announced

The finalists of the Liquid Roofing and Waterproofing Association (LRWA) Awards 2019 have been revealed.

Now in their third year, the awards showcase outstanding workmanship and technical excellence across the liquid roofing and waterproofing sector.

Entries were judged by an independent panel, including specifiers and technical experts. Each project was scored in line with strict criteria, including project complexity, standard of workmanship, evidence of problem solving and aesthetics.

A total of 20 projects have been shortlisted across four categories, including Liquid Roofing Project of the Year under 1,000m2, Liquid Roofing Project of the Year over 1,000m2, Liquid Roofing Project of the Year in a Buried Application, and Liquid Waterproofing Project of the Year – covering non-roofing applications such as car parks, bridges and balconies.

Three people are also in the running to be crowned Trainer of the Year.

The winners will be announced at the LRWA Awards and Gala Dinner on Wednesday, November 6, 2019. At the event, there will also be an award for Student of the Year and a Chairman’s Recognition Award for an individual who has made a special contribution to the liquid roofing and waterproofing industry.

Sarah Spink, CEO of the LRWA commented: “The quality and diversity of this year’s entries has been extremely impressive. The shortlisted projects feature a vast range of different buildings and structures in a variety of sectors including residential, commercial, rail, heritage, utilities, and healthcare.

“These projects clearly demonstrate the versatility of liquids and shine a light on the complex workmanship that is so often required in the sector as well as the need for effective problem solving.  

“We look forward to celebrating with the finalists and representatives from across our sector at the awards dinner in November.”
