Awarded to Lisa Williamson, Achieve + Partners

Damian Walters commented ‘The growth that we continue to see for the BiKBBI Awards demonstrates the need to recognise and reward excellence in the installation sector, as we strive to improve standards. The success of these awards is as a result of not only the installation community getting involved, but also the support of the businesses including the judging panel, our event partners and, of course, the category sponsors.  The BiKBBI Awards has is becoming a flagship event in the KBB calendar, and to see so many talented, hardworking individuals and businesses celebrated on a big stage tonight is what it is all about.

I also had the pleasure of presenting Lisa Williamson with the BiKBBI Special Recognition Award tonight. Her work on the development of our industry’s apprenticeship standard has been not only been relentless, but until now, largely unsung. The Fitted Interior qualification became a standalone Apprenticeship at the end of 2023, so we felt that now was a great time to formally recognise the amazing work and dedication Lisa has shown. Lisa really is an unsung hero and we should all applaud her for her tireless work in this area.”
