The top accolade – Outstanding Contribution to Quality – was presented to Contour Roofing at the Sika Sarnafil National Contractors Conference.
The Essex-based company was judged across all departments, including Applications, Project Management, Finance, and Customer Service and won for the highest levels of quality across all areas.
Contour Roofing was recognised for its strong customer service ethos and asa friendly innovative business which is easy to deal with.
Managing Director, Jonathan Woods, explained his view of ‘teamship’: “We ask each department, to put forward their ideas. They have an important input to our way of working, and we are always looking for the best way to do things, and continuously improve our efficiencies.”
Flat roofing team Senior Contract Manager, Lee Clift, is as equally proud of the company’s achievements: “Most of our business is repeat business, so we must be doing something right, and be good to work with!
You gauge your ability through the quality of your work and that’s when you find out how good you are. We look at jobs when they come in, and decide whether we can do anything with them. If you look at the NFRC award-winning project Ewart Grove that was something we knew we could do, and we made more of it by adding in the decor profiles to imitate standing seams. The decor profiles were our idea, and it certainly made the whole project better looking.”
Jonathan added: “We need to showcase our work and let people see the quality workmanship of the projects. Our NFRC award has brought us work, but so have the skills and personality of the team, and that’s how we got the work for a new UK headquarters in West Hanningfield, near Chelmsford. We have a team working on this £150 million development, which in this phase, will span five years, and has further planning permission for another 10 five-storey block to house another 800 personnel. They told us that it was the people they met and the way we work that got us the project, and that’s a great endorsement.”
