The PCA Best Practice Awards brought together 160 members, contractors, designers and experts for an evening of celebration, recognition and networking. The event saw Women of Waterproofing rewarded for ‘overcoming challenges in an innovative way, offering a solution to ensuring that we are attracting, recruiting and retaining talented women into the full range of roles and at all levels within the structural waterproofing industry and demonstrating engagement with a range of third parties.’
