Entries for this year’s World Demolition Awards have been flooding in – with the final number up by more than 20% on the well-supported event in London a year ago.

Companies will go head to head across 11 categories – nine for demolition contractors and two recognising innovation by manufacturers – when the awards dinner takes place during the World Demolition Summit (WDS) in Dublin, Ireland, on November 7 and 8. The event is organised by Demolition & Recycling International (D&Ri) in co-operation with the European Demolition Association (EDA). Headline sponsor is Volvo Construction Equipment.

Entrants who reach the final shortlist will receive a logo for use online and in marketing publicity

Two more prizes – the New Entrant and overall World Demolition Award categories – will be presented on the evening of the awards themselves.

Before then, the shortlisting process will take place as our international panel of nine judges, including a new member in EDA president Francisco Cobo, goes through the difficult task of reducing the numbers to the final candidates.

All the awards have been well supported, especially the Civils, Industrial, Urban and the two Contract of the Year categories, with the extra entries set to make competition even fiercer than usual.

The final shortlists will be announced online at www.khl.com as well as in the D&Ri and WDS newsletters.

In addition, the September-October issue of D&Ri will contain an extensive feature on the awards including details of all shortlisted entries.
