From high rises to new builds, we have experience with all types of social housing refurbishment and maintenance and have developed a first-class reputation for providing the highest quality products and finishing each project on time and within budget.
The award recognises manufacturers that push the boundaries of what’s possible in the industry and we are leading the way in inclusive employment.
