The CFJ/CFA Awards 2020

Big names sign up for CFJ/CFA Awards sponsorship

TWELVE companies have signed up as sponsors for the 2020 CFJ/CFA Awards: Carpet & Flooring; F Ball & Co; Forbo; Genesis; Hanson Plywood; Interface; Karndean Designflooring; Loughton Contracts; Mapei; Shaw Contract; Spotnails; and Uzin.

The awards will be held on 11th September 2020 by video hosted by professional snooker player, John Parrott.

This year saw the reinvention of our traditional awards with categories that celebrated partnerships and installations rather than singular achievements, although we retained categories such as manufacturer, distributor and apprentice of the year.

The new awards proved a resounding success, owing to several factors. First, successful installations are more exciting owing to being partnerships; second, a celebrity speaker – Eddie the Eagle in this case – was involved for the first time; and third, the winners were chosen by an independent judging panel consisting of a facilities consultant (Fiona Bowman); an architect (Simon Jackson); a flooring contractor (John Butler); and an independent flooring consultant (Richard Renouf).

The overall installation of the year went to Medifloor and Forbo Flooring Systems for their work at Deliveroo offices. The judges said: ‘This is an inspired scheme which has used several different products and has come up with an absolutely stunning result for Medifloor, Forbo and Uzin on behalf of clients Deliveroo. The clever application on vertical and horizontal surfaces brings an imaginative twist to what is clearly an excellently executed installation.’
