Norfolk builder scoops two top industry awards for stunning renovations
Norwich-based building firm R J Bacon Builders Ltd has scooped not one, but two prestigious Master Builder Awards! The team collected prizes for best Medium Renovation and best Large Renovation projects in the Federation of Master Builders’ (FMB) Eastern Region awards.
Since 1999, the Master Builder Awards has been a flagship for high-quality building work, showcasing examples of fantastic craftsmanship, exceptional customer service and building excellence. Organised by the FMB, the awards programme is unique in that any project entered by the builder must be backed up by the customer – giving clients the opportunity to support those building companies that have delivered exceptional results. The awards programme recognises the hard work and contribution that small and medium-sized (SME) construction firms make to the UK construction industry.
The best Medium Renovation award was won for work to transform a tired family cottage into something structurally impressive that makes the most of the views of the surrounding area. Judges praised the build, summarising it as a stunning example of how, when client, builder and engineer work closely together, a project can achieve and even surpass the brief.
It was work on The Lantern, Church Close on the North Norfolk Coast that earned the best Large Renovation award. All aspects of the build were designed to be sympathetic to the existing building whilst adding more space, light and character.
R J Bacon Builders Ltd was selected by the judges to win the Eastern Region Awards, which was presented at the FMB South West, Midlands and Eastern Master Builder Awards Gala Dinner, at the Hilton DoubleTree, Stratford-upon-Avon on 21st June. The firm will now go through to compete in the national finals for the chance to win the UK category title. The national ceremony will be held at the InterContinental Hotel, Park Lane, London on 20th September.
John Watson, FMB Central Director, said: “The Master Builder Awards give the FMB the opportunity to celebrate a job well done and for clients to say thank you to their builders. For the construction industry, it is an opportunity to celebrate all that is good about small local building firms and their contribution to the UK economy.
“Time and time again, we have been impressed with just how far these builders will go to ensure their client is happy. It is this dedication that we want to celebrate. R J Bacon Builders Ltd should feel justly proud of their achievement in winning and we wish the firm every success in the national competition.”
If R J Bacon Builders Ltd wins the overall national Master Builder Awards title, selected from all national category winners, the firm will drive away with a new Isuzu D-Max Utah Pick Up truck worth more than £30,000. The company’s client will also receive a cheque for £1,000 for their efforts.
