The awards were presented at the group’s annual Christmas Conference by Simon Storer, director of external affairs at the Construction Products Association.

Storer said: “Construction accounts for 4% of the UK’s GDP yet the government does not give it the recognition that this deserves. We have to address energy concerns and we have to continue to refurbish the existing housing stock if the government is to achieve its climate control targets. There are something like 26 million homes needing refurbishment.”

Suppliers and merchants will be key in achieving this, Storer went on. “I am therefore delighted to be asked to present these awards.”
