BRACKNELL ROOFING has been named Best Roofing Contractor by residential developer, Taylor Wimpey.
The housebuilder held an event for all the trades that have worked on its projects in London and the South East, and the Reading branch of Bracknell Roofing – which is part of Avonside Group Services – won the roofing contractor award.
The award ceremony was unexpected, according to Contracts Manager Clive Naish, who said: “We just thought Taylor Wimpey was having an annual get-together of all the different trades that support them to build homes in London and the South East – so it came as a surprise when they started handing out awards, but it was a proud moment when Bracknell Roofing was named Best Roofing Contractor for 2018.
“It is a great honour to pick up the award because we know that Taylor Wimpey work with some very good roofing contractors, who all do outstanding work.
“The award is a huge boost for the team at the Reading branch – which is where the company was originally founded more than 40 years ago – and it is validation of the standards that we set for ourselves and how they positively benefit the customers we work with – whether that’s a small development of a few dozen homes or large developments of thousands of new homes.”
Skill and professionalism
The team at the Reading branch also marked the milestone by remembering their Branch Manager Kevin Mather, who passed away suddenly last year.
Clive added, “Our delight was tinged with sadness, as Kevin should have been with us to celebrate, as he was well liked and respected by all those he worked with.”
Divisional Director Simon Smith of Bracknell Roofing said: “We applaud Taylor Wimpey for going out of its way to recognise the work of all the trades who it works with to build new homes – because it highlights the high levels of skill and professionalism right across the industry.
“The team at the Reading branch fully deserve this award, and in light of the difficult time around the untimely passing of a well-liked colleague, it highlights that our high standards have never slipped in supporting customers like Taylor Wimpey.”
