This year’s World Demolition Awards will feature a category making its debut at the industry’s annual event honouring best practice and innovation.
The New Entrant award will be given to the company entering the awards for the first time – or after a period of absence – that has most impressed the judges without actually winning in the category it is part of.
The 2017 awards – which take place in London on Thursday November 2 – include several new names and as well as thanking them for their enthusiasm it is hoped that the chance of winning the New Entrant prize will inspire and encourage similar entries into the future.
It involves no extra work on the part of either the entrant or the judges, and will be awarded to the highest scoring company that has entered for the first time or has put forward an entry for the first time in at least three years.
Any first time entrants who win in their category, or any returning companies who have previously won a World Demolition Award, will not be eligible.
The award will be presented alongside those for the traditional categories at London’s Millennium Gloucester Hotel.
The World Demolition Awards are part of the World Demolition Summit, which is organised by Demolition & Recycling International magazine in co-operation with the European Demolition Association.
