Hall of Fame Awards

The National Demolition Association established the National Demolition Association Hall of Fame Awards to recognize and honor elite industry leaders whose commitment, ingenuity, and devotion have significantly impacted the demolition industry and their companies. While the Lifetime Achievement Award focuses on the body of work of a member in the industry over the course of a lifetime, the Hall of Fame award is designed to honor professionals who have contributed significantly to the profession, but may not be eligible for the Lifetime Achievement Award.

The intention of this award is to recognize outstanding achievements of employees of a demolition company–regardless of role in the company.

Inductees will be celebrated during Demolition Phoenix as well as in NDA membership and news communications. Nominee must be a current or past employee of an NDA member company. Candidates may be nominated posthumously.

Applications for the 2023 awards season are now closed. Winners will be determined in November 2022 and shared at Demolition Phoenix, February 22-25 2023.
