The Premier Trophy Awards is a nationwide awards scheme hosted each year by the Painting Decorating Association to highlight and celebrate top quality performance and skill in all sectors of the industry ranging from apprentices and small contractors to large commercial businesses.
The 2017 awards took place at the London Marriott in Grosvenor Square and represent the 29th consecutive year that the prestigious event has been held. There were a total of seven categories and hundreds of applications from all over the United Kingdom were received.
All of the applications were assessed and were narrowed down to a group of 70 entries. These entries were gradually narrowed down further in a series of heats by a group of seven judges who carried out site visits and analysed all aspects of the project’s entry.
C E Pittaway & Son Ltd. entered into the Industrial Category with its work at Arco National Distribution Centre, Hull. After intense scrutiny by the judges, the company and the project survived the heats and made it to the final group of five competitors that were invited to the awards ceremony where the winner was announced.
The business was commended for its efficiency and skill in completing the challenging project which required abseiling teams to paint the 30m high steelwork – all whilst tackling adverse weather and ensuring that the building could remain fully operational. The client’s sterling review of the work C E Pittaway & Son Ltd. undertook also contributed to the company’s success in winning this reputable and distinguished national award.
