The Premier Trophy Awards is hosted each year to celebrate the diversity of skills and high level of craftsmanship and efficiency of service within the industry.

Open to members and non-members and judged by the Clerk of Works the competition promotes excellence and professionalism. 

The results are in! 

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 it's 26th year and still holds true to these objectives.
