Training¸ in partnership with CITB, went to Carol Atherton of Avonside Roofing. The companies that scored highest within

their roofing discipline in the NFRC Safety in Roofing Awards for 2014 were, in pitched roof- ing; Survey & Construction Ltd¸ for flat roofing; Roof-Link Industrial & Commercial Ltd and for industrial roofing and cladding; BRC Industrial Roofing (Midlands) Ltd. The Lead Sheet Association’s Young Lead

Worker of the Year award went to Ryan Fisher¸ a self-employed leadworker from Kent.

The Lead Contractors Association presented

the Murdoch Award and Murdoch Sponsor’s Award for best leadwork. The former was won by John Fulton Plumbers for Govan Waterside in Glasgow. The Sponsor’s Award went to D Blake and Co. Ltd for Dumfries House in Scotland. This was an extra special year for the UK

Roofing Awards as it was also the tenth anniver- sary since it all began in 2006. To mark the occasion two companies received recognition of their roofing excellence throughout the 10 year period and were presented with an Outstanding Achievement in Roofing Award. The two com- panies show the complete diversity of skills in the industry, working at different ends of the roofing spectrum; the awards went to Lakesmere Limited and Karl Terry Roofing Contractors Ltd. The Roofing Awards bring everyone within

the industry together. Along with NFRC, the awards hosts were the Roof Tile Association (RTA), the Liquid Roofing and Waterproofing Association (LRWA), the Lead Contractors Association (LCA), the Lead Sheet Association (LSA), the Federation of Traditional Metal Roofing Contractors (FTMRC), Single Ply Roofing Association (SPRA), the Metal Cladding and Roofing Manufacturers Associa- tion (MCRMA), CompetentRoofer, and the Green Roof Centre. Key partners were B&CE Benefit Schemes
