Project of the Year – Turnover up to £5 million and Turnover in excess of £5 million

We’re looking for examples of exceptional expertise, workmanship and customer service. Members are encouraged to enter projects that demonstrate the full range of their skills. It doesn’t have to be the most glamorous project as judges are more interested in the technical details, the complexity of the work and any unique challenges members had to overcome. Request the entry form for this category and others.


Health & Safety Award – 1-66 Operatives and 67+ Operatives

This category celebrates the companies that place a particular emphasis on improving health and safety standards through the implementation of activities, processes and initiatives and engagement with operatives. Request the entry form for this category and others.


Innovation of the Year

We’re seeking true innovation and want to see how NASC members continue to raise the bar through developments in new scaffolding materials, processes and products. It is open to all NASC members. Request the entry form for this category and others.


NASC President’s Award

This category celebrates NASC members’ excellence in wider commercial activities. Entries are being sought from members that have focused on mentoring, promoting the role of women in our industry, encouraging more young people and those from diverse backgrounds to enter the industry and increasing provision of mental health and wellbeing support. Request the entry form for this category and others.


Apprentice of the Year

This category recognises future leaders in our industry. It is open to individuals employed by NASC members who are either currently undertaking a formal apprenticeship or have successfully completed the apprenticeship programme since June 2018.

Celtic Manor

The five-star Celtic Manor Resort, set in 2,000 acres of panoramic parkland in the beautiful Usk Valley, is perhaps best known for being one of the UK’s leading golf clubs.

However, there’s much more on offer on site besides golf. Celtic Manor boasts a range of indoor activity experiences from gin, cocktail, Welsh cake and chocolate making classes, wine tasting sessions and chef’s kitchen cookery courses. For those looking to simply relax, the hotel features exceptional spas and state-of-the-art health clubs. There are also seven restaurants on site to choose from.
