CFJ/CFA Awards 2020: all the winners

History was made at 12.30pm on Friday 11 September this year when the CFJ/CFA Awards 2020 was finally launched via video. It was originally to have been held on Friday 19 June at Coombe Abbey near Coventry, but was postponed because of the Covid-19 outbreak.

During the video, host John Parrott, world champion snooker player, announced the winners in all categories, including the individual manufacturer section and the installation partnership awards. The video was interspersed with John performing various trick shots on the snooker table at his Liverpool home. He also answered several questions related to his career in a Q&A with Kick-Start Publishing ceo, John Heath – an unabashed fan.

In the video, Parrott interspersed announcing winners with performing trick shots at the snooker table at his Liverpool home. These shots revealed combinations that ultimately unlocked the padlocks on hampers sent to all attendees. In the final moments of the video, it was revealed the overall winners of Installation of the Year were Karndean Designflooring and RB Flooring for their installation at Tool & Gauge Kitchen in Clifton, Somerset.

Tool & Gauge Kitchen is a café and shared kitchen facility located in the Frome Business Park in Somerset, converted from a disused warehouse to provide a unique hub space with a resi-mercial design for a warm, friendly atmosphere. The flooring design combines several complementary geometric patterns from Karndean’s Heritage Collection with coordinating borders to create zones and walkways, identifying different working areas and supporting wayfinding.
