Celebrating excellence in the UK’s painting and decorating sectors, the Premier Trophy Awards endorse the highest standards in skills, craft and innovation. We’re especially proud to have been recognised for high achievement in areas representing such a wide range of disciplines and sectors.
Our ethos is all about the people who are at the heart of our business, so it was fitting that the first award celebration for us was Painting and Decorating Apprentice Katie White, winning Joint Runner-Up in the Junior Apprentice of the Year. We will be featuring an interview with Katie soon.
Our communal area decorations programme for Housing 21 on Carlton Crescent, a development of 27 affordable retirement apartments in Stockport, saw us Commended in the Residential Award category. The team of two multi-trade operatives and two painters, including an apprentice, worked alongside Housing 21’s designer to provide the optimal fusion of technical skills to create an attractive and inviting living space for residents. The client’s response to our work was outstanding and a significant uplift in residents’ well being was noted.
Highly commended in the Commercial Category was our work for Ballard School in Hampshire. Repairs and paintwork were extensive to the main building were extensive, but teaming up with Crown, and working to their specification, we were able to ensure a high spec finish that exceeded the client’s time and budgetary expectations.
Winner of both the Industrial Category and the Supreme Winner Award, our work on Longstone Lighthouse for client Trinity House took centre stage at the Awards. Isolated at the heart of the Farne Islands and built in1826, there were huge challenges associated with the internal and external redecoration works and associated preparation we undertook. Not only were our teams working with specialist abseilers to scale the 26 metre tall tower surrounded by rocky terrain, they were also isolated for the 3 weeks on site with their workplace doubling as a temporary residence.
We are so proud.
