The 2018 NASC Awards will feature seven categories, including Project of the Year and Health & Safety – which will both be split into Large and Small sub-categories – as well as the Apprentice of the Year and the Scaffolding Product Innovation award.
A new category, named the NASC President’s Award, has been added this year. This award recognises the achievements of NASC member companies in helping to realise the core objectives set out by NASC President and TRAD Group CEO Des Moore at the outset of his presidency.
Entry forms can be found below. The deadline for submission is Friday 28 September.
The winners of this year’s NASC Awards will be announced at the NASC 2018 Ball, taking place at the Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa, Edinburgh, on Friday 23 November.
All entries will be considered for inclusion in the NASC Yearbook 2019 – published in conjunction with Construction Manager magazine and distributed to their 30,000 readers, all members of the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB), directly to their address of choice – as well as the NASC 2019 Safety Report free of charge.
The shortlisted entries will also be showcased at the NASC AGM, held on the afternoon of the Ball at the same venue.
Robin James, NASC Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to launch the new-look 2018 NASC Awards, which this year not only feature a greater number of categories than ever before but also a much more streamlined entry process.
“These improvements are intended to make it easier for members of all sizes, working across all sectors, to submit entries across the various categories. Furthermore, we hope members will be encouraged to take part by the high-value incentives available to them by entering; with category winners receiving fantastic recognition for their achievements and all entries gaining the opportunity to feature in our 2019 Yearbook and Safety Reports, publications which reach a broad section of the construction industry.
“All entries will be assessed on individual merit, however the earlier they are submitted, the greater chance they will have of being included. We look forward to receiving your submissions.”
