Showing results for “golden trowel awards”
The 5th Golden Trowel Awards were held at the Concrete Society in Camberley, and the judges got the opportunity to see an exciting selection of the variety of decorative concrete projects undertaken during 2009. As always this years' entries were only the tip of the iceberg in terms of the range and scope of work we see as we travel around the country visiting the network of installers, so if you have not shown off examples of your own quality decorative concrete work before, start thinking about projects to photograph and enter for the 2010 Awards!
This year we decided to make a Special Bespoke Project Award for the best example of a uniquely creative project as a fitting tribute to the memory of Dave “Tubbs” Allseybrook who sadly lost his life in a diving accident in Egypt earlier this year. Dave was well known and respected by many in the industry who have worked alongside him over 20 years, both in the East Midlands where he began with one of the original Paverprint franchises alongside Frank Murphy and more recently in the North East working with The Patterned Concrete Company and Tony Adams. Dave will be missed and remembered by many, and our thoughts are with his family at this time.
Our Special Award has been made to Teesvalley Drainage & Driveways for Lee Bouttell's hand crafted colourful garden recreation on a driveway in Redcar, which Lee created from concept to installation. A unique and cleverly undertaken project, so congratulations to Lee.
