Entries are open for the 2021 British Demolition Awards, and RVA Group’s managing director Richard Vann has been appointed to sit on the judging panel.

A celebration of talent, collaboration and innovation throughout the profession, the event is now in its third year. With 13 categories covering demolition contractor and project excellence, safety innovation, asbestos removal, up-and-coming talent, environmental advancements, and more, it is hoped that this will be a strong showcase of what is great about the demolition industry.

Richard will join fellow judges Paul Argent, editor of Demolition Hub; Holly Price, former NFDC president and Keltbray’s skills and communities director; and Simon Barlow, NFDC LSC chairman and managing director of Rye Demolition.

“It is important that we champion the dedication, hard work and pioneering attitudes that exist within the demolition industry, and I look forward to reviewing the submissions that come in,” said Richard. “Having been a part of the profession for over 30 years, on a truly global basis, I continue to be proud of our work – especially here in the UK.”

The deadline to enter the British Demolition Awards, is 31 July, before judging will commence. The industry will gather at the Amex stadium in Brighton, on 3 September, to learn which of the finalists have been successful.

Best of luck to all.
