Applications are now open for this year’s small project BIG IMPACT Awards. Now in its third year, the awards celebrate projects with a value under £25k. After all, these are just as important for the industry’s reputation as their larger counterparts.
The smaller projects are often underappreciated; these awards are here to shout about the extreme technical ability, problem-solving skills, and work on a budget that these projects so often demonstrate. They rightly deserve their own awards ceremony.
This year sees a huge development for Pro Landscaper’s small project BIG IMPACT Awards, too. With the FutureScape event moving to the ExCeL for 2020, and taking place over two days, the spBI Awards will be an evening ceremony with a three-course dinner on Tuesday 17 November.
There is also a new category for the 2020 awards to continue promoting the message of our Green Issue for a more environmentally friendly and sustainable industry. Showcase the green credentials of your work by entering the new ‘Sustainable Project under £25,000’ category.
Jim Wilkinson, managing director of Eljays44, says: “We are delighted how these awards have established themselves since being launched in 2018. It was always our intention to highlight the skill and quality both in terms of design and build on a smaller budget. The quality and experience of the judging panel adds real value and being shortlisted and becoming an overall winner is an amazing feat – we look forward to receiving all the entries and wish everyone good luck.
