CATEGORIES & CRITERIA
The HVR Awards has curated a stellar line-up of categories that represent all corners of the vibrant HVAC sector, with accolades specifically designed to recognise products, projects, companies and individual contributions. A number of these categories will be judged, while the remaining categories will be subject to an industry vote.
In a number of categories, each entry and nomination will be rigorously reviewed against strict criteria by a panel of independent industry experts.
The remaining categories will be placed in the hands of professionals operating within the heating and ventilating industry, who will be invited to make their voices heard in a secure online vote.
A shortlist, and ultimately one winner, in each category will be decided by either the judging panel or voting process.
The 2020 winners will be announced at the eleventh HVR Awards ceremony, set to take place at the stunning Atmostphere venue in London this October. To make sure you don’t miss out on finding out who will be crowned a champion, click here.
