The On The Tools Awards 2018

02 October 2018

Do you know a tradesman or local company within the construction industry that deserves a little recognition? If so, you should consider entering them into the On Tools Awards 2018.

What are the Tools Awards?

The Tools Awards is an annual celebration of the many contributions from workers, subcontractors and tools and equipment manufacturers throughout the UK construction industry.

It’s also a belter of a party, with over 300 guests coming together to recognise the people that make our industry the greatest in the world.

How do I take part?

You can either nominate yourself or put someone forward from 29 different categories within the construction industry. This includes everyone from brickies and builders to major tool suppliers and manufacturers.

It’s free to enter and you can take part as many times as you like!

How are the winners picked?

A panel of judges will review all entries and create a shortlist of the very best candidates in each category. Each judge is a renowned expert in the construction industry so they know a winner when they see one!

Some categories are also open to public voting, so if you take part, be sure to let your friends, family and customers know so they can vote for you.

When are the winners announced?

The winners will be announced during a lavish dinner at the Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham on Thursday 1 November 2018. So be sure to book the Friday off work if you're coming to the event!

What are people saying about the event?

Theo Webster of Theo Webster Electrical and second year finalist had this to say:

This is an industry where hard graft pays off, so for me, it’s all about having the opportunity to put our tools down for the day and celebrate something that we’re all part of.

It’s a cracking day, full of laughs and positive energy, so if you can make it down I’d definitely recommend it! Also, don’t forget to vote for me!
