On your marks - 2014 World Demolition Awards

By Lindsay Gale17 December 2013

After considerable consultation with the judging panel following the successful 2013 World Demolition Awards, D&Ri can now announce the categories that will be open to contractors to submit their entries for the 2014 Awards: They are as follows:

Contract of the Year over US$1.5 million – project specific

Contract of the Year US$500,000 to US$1.5 million – project specific

Contract of the Year under US$500,000 – project specific

Safety & Training Award – not project specific but based on company practices, performance and policies

Collaboration Award – project specific

Explosive Demolition Award – project specific

Urban Demolition Award – project specific

Industrial Demolition Award – project specific

Civils Demolition Award – project specific

Environmental Demolition Award – project specific

Manufacturers’ Innovation Award: Series Product

Manufacturers’ Innovation Award: Custom Product

The principle behind this restructuring is to encourage smaller demolition contractors to enter in 2014 who may have been put off the idea of competing against the ‘big boys’ in the past, especially in the Contract of the Year category. We have also made most of the categories retained from previous years into project specific in nature in the hope that this will make potential entries more identifiable as well as make the entry process easier.

There are also two other categories available to the judging panel in 2014 for which entries cannot be made. Details on these will be made available on the night of the Awards if the judges decide to exercise their discretion and request for them to be made. You will therefore need to be there to find out more.

Entry forms will be available for download in early January 2014, with a definitive date announced in due course on www.khl.com/demolition and in the D&Ri Newsletter
