The Heating Installer Awards announced their 2022 regional winners as well as the finalists for its Rising Star and Most Sustainable Installer categories. As in previous years, Big Wipes is one of the sponsors of this prestigious accolade.
Heating Installer Awards 2022 Regional Shortlist
The shortlists have been decided by a panel of experts. These include representatives from the awards’ partners Armacell, CIPHE, Danfoss, LG, Stelrad, Polypipe Building Products and Installer. Together they scored all of the entries on problem solving, product knowledge and stand-out work. Further, the panel was joined by the 2021 Heating Installer Awards winner, Grant Gundelfinger, from Mayfly Group.
Now in its seventh year, the awards recognise the achievements and raises the credibility of plumbers and heating installers across the country who deliver excellent work on a daily basis.
Targeting every region across the UK, the awards encourage plumbers and installers to nominate a project they’re particularly proud of. Most importantly, this should demonstrate high technicality, outstanding professionalism, and exceptional service. Above all, these should all result in a happy customer.
The judges said that this year the entries received were of a higher standard than ever before. With an increasingly outstanding quality of projects submitted, selecting the best was certainly no easy feat.
