Flash back to a few weeks ago and we were celebrating the fourth annual On The Tools Awards.
The awards recognise and reward construction workers, sub contractors, tool and equipment manufacturers, and construction companies from across the UK.
The event was presented once again by the superb stand-up comedian Justin Moorehouse, with 450 guests in attendance including builders, tradespeople and leading construction brands.
26 awards were given out during the night, ranging from Todd Scanlon, a Scaffolder with Down’s Syndrome wining Apprentice of the Year, to a Special Recognition award for Sotira Georgiou, a Structural Engineer, for her dedication to inspiring the next generation on STEM subjects.
Designed to recognise both individuals and leading brands the awards were judged by a panel of industry judges and an online public vote. An incredible 20,000 votes were cast for this year’s awards.
This year’s judges included: Adam Callow, CEO of Expert Trades, Gavin Crane, Trustee of Band of Builders, Wayne De Wet, Multiple Award Winner and Industry Expert, Sam Hiner, Account Director, Ridgemount PR, Katie Kelleher, Crane Operator and Industry Influencer, Dave Seal, Managing Director, Advent Tools, Tibby Singh, BBC’s Carpenter of the Year and a Multi-Award Winning Carpenter and Joinery Expert, Jaggy Singh, Construction Influencer, and Andy Stevens, Builder and Broadcaster.
