David Jameson Roofing Services Ltd has won the Roofing Specialist of the Year 2018 award category at the national Construction News Specialists Awards. David and Mark Jameson were presented with the award on the 8th March 2018 at a ceremony held in the Grosvenor House Hotel, London.
The company found out they had been selected as finalists for the Roofing Specialist of the Year category at the beginning of the year, as one of four firms. The other roofing contractors shortlisted were Rowlands Roofing, MAC Roofing and Bridgman and Bridgman.
Presentation to judges
The competition involved David Jameson Roofing Services attending a face-to-face judging session by a panel made up from the UK’s largest construction firms and the leaders of the UK’s major projects.
David and Mark Jameson attended on behalf of the company and provided a 30-minute presentation on all aspects of the company from workforce culture, including training and embracing diversity, to business growth and their outstanding performance on sustainability as the first company in the world to achieve Phase 6 of the BS 8555 Seren Scheme Environmental Management System.
David Jameson says: “We entered the award to test ourselves against other roofing firms across the UK to see if we come close against the roofing industry’s elite.
“At the time of entering this competition we considered ourselves to be the underdog, coming up against mainland firms who win multi-million-pound contracts. We were more than delighted to be become finalists – the only firm from Northern Ireland to do so. To win this award highlights our standing within the UK roofing industry and bears testament to our high standards and workmanship.”
Speaking about how the company will benefit from the award, David added, “We have gained an added sense of pride in our workforce – we firmly believe high morale benefits our organisation. The award will demonstrate to our present and future clients that they will receive an ethical and professional service from us.”
