FPDC’s annual Plaisterers’ Awards reflect the dynamic nature of the plastering, drywall, SFS and screeding industry and provide a unique opportunity for members to showcase and be recognised for their work.
The 2013 Plaisterers’ Awards open for entries on 31 May and FPDC is once again inviting contractors to submit their projects for the sector’s most prestigious accolade.
Last year FPDC added categories to enable a wider range of companies to enter while significantly increasing the chances of winning for all entrants.
Steve Halcrow, FPDC’s executive director, commented: “Our annual awards are a fantastic way to celebrate with our members and recognise their high quality work and commitment to improving
the built environment. We know that there is a wealth of tremendous work within the industry and would encourage all members to enter and showcase their skills.”
