Smart Installer of the 2017

Following the considerable rise in interest in smart technology in recent years, this has been a notable developing trend within the heating and plumbing sector. This category has therefore been established to recognise the domestic installer and contractor that is utilising smart technology in any of its various forms. This could be through installing the latest options to allow home owners to control their systems through their mobile device, or could equally apply to companies organising and supporting their engineers through effective use of smart phone technology.


Service & Maintenance Initiative of the 2017

Open to any company seen to have taken significant steps to improve standards in the area of after-sales service during 2016. The judges will look for evidence of a strategic approach that has helped to lengthen the life of installed equipment by setting up planned maintenance strategies, as well as improving environmental performance by fine-tuning or upgrading installations to the long-term benefit of clients.

Safety Initiative of the 2017

Individuals or organisations are expected to highlight specific initiatives that have had a significant contribution to health and/or safety during 2016. A before and after comparison is welcomed in this category, so that the effect of the initiative can be fully demonstrated. The judges will be looking for real evidence of progress in any of the following areas:

  • building services design
  • product manufacture or design
  • product installation, or application
  • the introduction of an innovative health and safety policy


Retrofit Project of the 2017

With new build projects contributing a small percentage of the buildings that will be in existence when the government’s various, legally binding carbon reduction target deadlines are reached, the retrofitting of buildings is becoming increasingly important if these targets are to be attained. This award therefore recognises the projects that have refurbished existing buildings to exemplary levels, meeting the needs of the client and providing the property with a new lease of life, while reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions.
