Search on for stars of North East construction industry

TradesAwards_web_logoThe annual search for the North East’s top tradespeople and businesses is once again underway, launching officially at a special event being held at Trinity Hall tomorrow night.

The launch event, held in association with main sponsor Stewart Milne Group, will highlight the benefits and opportunities available to businesses who take part in Trades Awards 2017, as well as offering general hints and tips to any company considering entering for the first time.

The Trades Awards launched in 2012 to reward excellence within the trades and construction industry. Now entering its fifth year, the ceremony continues to be the largest construction event in the North East, with 13 award categories open to trades businesses of all sizes and disciplines.

The awards are run by creative marketing agency, Mearns & Gill.

Michael Wilson, managing director of Mearns & Gill, said: “Thanks to the incredible continued support from the local trades and construction industry, the Trades Awards 2017 has already received the highest number of registrations to date.

“The launch event is a chance for potential applicants to hear first-hand from previous award winners how winning a Trades Award has positively impacted their business, and we would encourage anyone with an interest in entering this year to join us on Thursday.”

Neil Thomson, construction director of Stewart Milne Homes, added: “Construction is a hugely exciting and dynamic industry to be in, and Aberdeen and the North has some of the most highly skilled workers in the UK.

“It’s important that we reward and recognise their hard work and commitment, both to motivate them to help the industry flourish and to attract new, up and coming talent into the trade. I’m already looking forward to meeting this year’s potential applicants, and hearing about some of the wonderful success stories that Trade Awards 2017 discovers.”

The Trades Awards 2017 launch event at 6pm is free to attend, and is open to anyone with an interest in entering or supporting this year’s awards. For more information, or to secure your place, contact Isla Stewart on or call a member of the team on 01224 646311.
