The Gold Circle
Awards program recognizes Alliance and NRCA members for outstanding contributions to the roofing industry. Unique
roofing-related jobs, programs and services are eligible for the program. To be considered for a Gold Circle Award,
Alliance and NRCA members are nominated by their peers and community for significant contributions to the roofing
industry in the following categories:
Outstanding Workmanship—Low-slope (3:12 or less)
Outstanding Workmanship—Steep-slope (greater than 3:12)
Outstanding workmanship in a roofing application by a contractor and crew can comprise a particularly challenging
job, difficult design, abnormal working conditions, use of difficult materials, etc.
Innovative Solutions—New Construction
Innovative solutions can comprise difficult jobs, smart solutions to problems, environmentally friendly projects,
Safety Preparedness and Performance
The safety award is presented for projects where site-specific safety considerations were considered and included
in the proposal as the job was being bid, a formal plan was created after selection that was updated as the project
continued and all parts were reviewed upon project completion. Explaining how safety was integrated into unique job
elements and impacted by creative solutions and procedures that may have, for example, included multiple trades or
unique worker or public protection issues, is encouraged. Documentation of these phases and evidence of lessons
learned from close-call investigations that help create safer jobs in the future are key.
