Croydon plumber takes the gold

22 November 2016

Plumbing apprentices and professionals have been recognised for their hard work and dedication to the industry at The Plumbing and Fire Industry Awards (PFIAs).

The PFIAs are a joint initiative driven by key industry stakeholders, Master Plumbers, the National Fire Industry Association, the Plumbing Industry Climate Action Centre and the Plumbing and Pipe Trades Employees Union. Their purpose is to bring together the plumbing and fire protection industries and recognise excellence in the training and development achievements of individuals.

Fourth year plumbing apprentice Calan Haydon was this year awarded the top prize, the Andrew Letten Gold Medal Award, and further honoured with the Frank Maskell General Plumbing Award. This award, sponsored by Reece, recognises a fourth year apprentice who has excelled in sanitation, drainage and roofing. Calan was recognised for his strong commitment to off-the-job duties.

The talented apprentice from Croydon has been exposed to a diverse range of projects throughout his four-year apprenticeship, including the installation of sanitary drainage in laboratories, hospitals, universities, schools and residential properties, always with sustainability in mind.

“Climate change and population have stretched our energy and water capacities,” says Calan, “but new, efficient technologies can work to wind the clock towards a sustainable future.”
