Armstrong Ceilings held its second Gridoff competition for the ‘mega’ competitive Omega National Network installers, who once again met in the ring.
This year’s Grid-off competition took place on March 14th at the NEC, Birmingham and Bellwood Interiors Ltd were delighted to be involved and compete against excellent installers from across the country. The selected subcontractors were competing against the clock to install a Prelude 24mm grid and Ultima+ board edge tile system to create a 600 x 600 module grid in a space of 7.2m2 with a floor-to-ceiling height of 2m, and for any mistakes judges were giving out 10 second penalties
The best pair of installers (Interceil) were able to win a luxury Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean watch, worth an astonishing £4.5k and the other two top places walked away with ringside tickets to the much wanted Haye versus Bellew boxing fight. The legendary boxing commentator Steve Bunce was compering the knockout rounds and introducing more than 10 two-men teams in the ring. Bellwood Interiors Ltd team also known as “The Brothers Grid” Jason Holdham and Steve Walsey came 7th, completing their installation in 7:46:81 (including two 10 second penalties), improving our time from last year by 2 full minutes. This excellent event was not only fun and educational but also gave all the team proactive marketing exposure.
Our Bellwood Social Media Manager Kamila Falkowska was able to live tweet during the entire event, which appeared on Gridoff’s social media page.
Last years winners Coyle fitters Kevin Coyle and Tom Goodfellow complete their installation in just 05:22:22, yet came second in the final round at this years Gridoff battling against Interceil pair who won just by 2 seconds.
It was a pleasure to be a part of such an amazing and well run event. A big thank you to Armstrong Ceilings for organising and hosting this great competition. Congratulations to all of this year's winners.
