Record-breaking number of ECA award entries

A record-breaking number of award entries have been received for this year’s ECA’s Annual Awards, with judging now set to take place to shortlist top performing firms within electrical engineering and wider building services.

In total, 142 submissions were made to the ECA, spread across all eight award categories, which include ‘Contractor of the Year’, ‘Best Client/Contractor Partnership’, and ‘Best Health and Safety Initiative’.

This year’s judges comprise a range of leading industry figures; including CEDIA executive director Wendy Griffiths, Electrical Safety First’s head of electrotechnical Martyn Allen, Electrical Industries Charity managing director Tessa Ogle, and the ECA’s director of business Paul Reeve.

ECA CEO Steve Bratt commented: ’In recent times we have had a range of top class ECA award winners and with a record-breaking number of entries this year, the bar looks set to be raised yet again.

‘This interest in the ECA awards is a real testament to the high quality work being undertaken by ECA members for their clients, and the innovation and technical excellence within the industry.’

Last year’s winners included Quartzelec Ltd, who won Large Contractor of the Year, SSE Enterprise Contracting, winners of the ‘Best Health and Safety Initiative’, and Darke & Taylor Ltd, who scooped the ‘Excellence in Training and Development Award’.

The award winners will be announced at the ECA Annual Gala Dinner and Awards, supported by headline sponsor LEDVANCE, on Friday 8 July at Celtic Manor, South Wales.

Attendees will enjoy an evening of entertainment hosted by Alan Dedicoat – the voice of The National Lottery and Strictly Come Dancing – alongside top comedian Stephen K. Amos.
