Lluis Dalmau, a plumbing and heating engineer from Clydebank, has been named Britain’s Top Tradesperson 2017.
The 42-year-old beat thousands of entries to land this year’s most coveted award in the trade, organised by omnichannel retailer, Screwfix. And as well as being crowned the best of the best, he also receives the keys to a brand new Toyota Hilux or PROACE vehicle worth £32,000.
Lluis, who trades under the name LCD Heating and Gas Services, started in the industry 26 years ago. He prides himself on his customer focused mind-set by working around the clock to help with customer queries and his passion to better his skills through continued investments in new technologies.
During a very competitive national final at Wembley Stadium in July, it was his reliability, passion to continue upskilling and commitment to apprentices and customers that impressed a panel of judges made up of industry experts.
Lluis said: “It is an absolute dream come true being crowned Britain’s Top Tradesperson. I was so shocked when they told me I had won.
“I can’t wait to share the news with my customers and collect my new Toyota vehicle; it’s going to make me stand out from the crowd when I arrive at a job.”
Britain’s Top Tradesperson is a comprehensive search held by Screwfix annually to find and recognise the best in the trades, from bricklayers to carpenters, handymen, electricians and plumbers that keep the UK’s homes and businesses in top condition.
