FENSA Installation of the Year award now integrated
The Glass & Glazing Federation (GGF), has been announced as the main sponsor for this year’s G Awards, which remains the UK glass and glazing industry’s primary awards showcase after more than 18 years. Taking place at a new venue, The Intercontinental Hotel on London’s Park Lane, G22 is expected to be the biggest for a decade as Covid-fears subside and life returns to normal.
Amongst thirteen categories to be presented as part of G Awards for the first time, the FENSA Installation of the Year prize will be presented once more after its inaugural success in 2019 and repeat in 2021. Judged to the strictest criteria, every single FENSA registered installation may win, totalling more than half a million potential entries in 12 months. The numbers are distilled following consultation with the homeowner, together with assessment of the work by a RISA assessor, with top marks required from both before being referred to the formal judging stage.
John Agnew, group managing director of the GGF, says that the organisation has put its weight behind the G Awards once again, as it is the premier awards event of the industry calendar and has a crucial role to play: “The G Awards is a high profile event and one that has the crucial role of seeking and promoting excellence within the glass and glazing industries. We are proud to get behind it as it provides such a positive platform for companies of every size and discipline, whilst also recognising individual, personal effort and success.
“It is a natural fit for an industry leading brand such as the GGF to partner with the G-Awards. We see a large number of GGF members nominated for awards every year, it highlights a huge amount of outstanding work the industry undertakes throughout the year and it is only right that we celebrate those achievements.”
“Neither should we underestimate the associated publicity that the G Awards generates, which is crucial in providing a ‘feelgood’ factor. That is much needed, after the anxieties that we have all experienced in the past two years and more,” added John.
