The inaugural Fyreguard Passive Fire Protection and Compliance Excellence Award was presented to commercial plumbing company Cooke & Dowsett at the 2019 Plumbing and Gas Industry Awards, held on Friday 19 July at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, Brisbane.
Cooke & Dowsett won this award for their work on Coorparoo Square where they demonstrated the use of new systems on the market with evidence of multiple products in numerous substrates. Their submission was well supported with passive fire certification documents, photos and compliance with all relevant standards and codes. Having applied the correct systems for a number of situations that were encountered onsite, Cooke & Dowsett are a deserved winner of this award.
The high standard of projects submitted for this category meant that the judges also recognised work completed by Elevate Plumbing across Brisbane and the Gold Coast with a Highly Commended award.
Hosted by Master Plumbers’ Association of Queensland (MPAQ) in partnership with Event Partner Tradelink, the Plumbing and Gas Industry Awards aim to highlight the hard work and dedication invested into the industry by apprentices, plumbers, gasfitters, hydraulic consultants and other industry individuals.
This year the sell-out awards recognised individuals and companies in 18 categories and hosted VIPs including the Minister for Housing and Public Works, Digital Technology and Sport, the Hon. Mick de Brenni MP, the Shadow Minister for Housing and Public Works, Energy, Innovation and Digital Technology, Michael Hart MP, State Secretary for the Plumbers Union Qld, Gary O’Halloran and Commissioner of the Queensland Building and Construction Commission, Brett Bassett.
