Rap Interiors Design Director Julie Anderson was delighted to pick up a Lifetime Achievement award courtesy of the FIS (Finishes and Interiors Sector). Julie was put forward for the award by her Rap Interiors colleagues, who felt that her work in the interiors sector and involvement in local charity work justified a nomination.
The award show, held at the luxurious Plaisterer’s Wall venue in London, was attended by some 300 FIS members and also included an appearance by Britain’s first Olympic ski-jumper Eddie the Eagle Edwards. The show is held annually to celebrate the outstanding achievements of individuals who have demonstrated excellence, dedication and commitment to their personal development, organisation and the finishes and interiors community.
Prior to announcing the Lifetime Achievement award winner, FIS President Iain McIlwee spoke about why Julie had been nominated. He mentioned her commitment to charity work, her involvement in the interiors sector and highlighted the example she sets to women in the construction industry.

Julie comments: “I am over the moon to receive this award from a prestigious organisation like the FIS. I would like to thank the FIS for choosing me and of course my amazing colleagues for putting me forward! It means a lot to receive this kind of recognition and I hope that the award inspires other women to pursue a career in the construction industry.
I would also like to thank the FIS for putting on an incredible event. It was great speaking to the amazing members of the board and of course meeting Eddie the Eagle! If you’re involved in the finishes and interiors sector in any way, I would highly recommend getting in touch with them.”
