Travis Perkins Innovation Awards deadline is fast approaching!


There is just a few weeks left to get your entry submitted to the Travis Perkins Innovation Awards (TPIA)!

Back in March, Travis Perkins plc launched their first ever Innovation Awards. The idea of the Awards is to find the next big product innovation relevant to the construction industry.

It might be that you are not a budding inventor with a product idea right now, but maybe you like solving problems. On the Awards website you will find a list of five common problems faced within the industry. TP plc is looking for the best solutions to these problems, which include the danger of working at height or the issue of bad weather stopping work.

Anyone can enter, so whether you are a university student, a registered business, an inventor or a TP colleague, there is a chance of success for you. Successful entrants could be offered up to £10,000 of funding or a product trial in the FTSE100 distributor’s network of Travis Perkins branches and stores. Panel members include senior leaders from TP plc, as well as universities and industry professionals like the BRE.

Applications have come in from across the country and we are just waiting for yours! Visit to more information, the application form and all the T&Cs.
