Jamie Dial, of Derby-based Specialist Contractor Cawarden, has been presented with an award by the National Federation of Demolition Contractors (NFDC).
The NFDC announced the winners and highly commended nominees for the 2023 awards at the annual luncheon – held on Friday 24th March at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.
Jamie was presented with the CITB-sponsored ‘Demolition Operative of the Year’ award by NFDC’s CEO, Howard Button.
In recognition of his enthusiasm, hard work, and willingness to learn and progress, Jamie, 22, won the award. Jamie was over the moon to receive his award on stage.
When Cawarden first met Jamie, he was living in YMCA accommodation in Derby. Jamie had a tough start in life but he hasn’t let that hold him back.
The NFDC Demolition Awards recognises and celebrates the very best in the demolition sector today.
To receive an award from the Federation, which is known for championing high standards in demolition for more than 80 years is a prestigious accolade indeed.
I have proved myself wrong and I am proud of what I have achieved so far and the confidence and motivation I have acquired through my work at Cawarden. I’m excited about the future and would like to thank everyone who has supported me.”
Jamie is a shining star, and I’m excited to watch him grow as a person and gain a lifetime of skills at Cawarden. The progress he has made in such a short time makes us very proud. Through his story, I hope Jamie helps to inspire others to join us and shape the future of next-generation demolition talent.”
