Premier Trophy Awards Competition

The PDA Premier Trophy Awards began in late 1987 when a group of professionals and suppliers from the construction industry convened at the Building Employers Confederation headquarters in London to consider how to improve press coverage of the sector.

As a result of this meeting, the National Federation of Painting and Decorating Contractors (NFPDC) implemented a competition with the appointment of the Clerk of Works Incorporation Council (ICW) as independent inspectors.

It was decided that the objectives of the Premier Trophy Awards should be: demonstrate the diversity of skill and craft, show efficiency of service to clients, develop the highest standards of excellence for the industry.

The competition is now in its 30th year and still holds true to these objectives.
