An award shows that you are the best of the Master Builders in London.How would you feel if you found out at the Award ceremony that instead of winning ONE award you had won TWO!
Here is what The Federation of Master Builders (FMB) had to say.
The FMB, the largest trade association in the UK established in 1941, reports on the Wimbledon builder scooping top industry awards for large renovation work and stunning garage site transformation.
Wimbledon based building firm Kisiel Ltd has scooped two prestigious Master Builder Awards, taking the prize for best Large Renovation Project and best New Home Project in the Federation of Master Builders’ (FMB) London 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) building firms make to the UK construction industry.
Kisiel Ltd picked up the best Large Renovation prize for work carried out on a property in the Creffield Conservation Area in West London. Judges were bowled over by the effort and care the team put into the project stating: “This project has the ultimate 'before' and 'after' pictures. It is hard to believe this is the same house. What a result! The transformation is hugely impressive – every inch of this house has been improved. Restoring the front façade back to its original state is the icing on the cake.”
The house was in an extremely poor state and needed careful, skilled renovation work on areas including the front façade to repair and retain the original features. The team also added a rear extension, side extension and converted the loft space to enable the property to be converted into five stunning apartments.
The firm also picked up the award for best New Home for the creation of four new homes built on a plot originally occupied by a row of garages in Ealing. The project demonstrates how SME builders can build new houses to a high standard, with judges stating that it brilliantly shows what can be done with small garage sites: “A lovely design, well built with quality shining through everywhere you look.”
Kisiel Ltd was selected by the judges to win the London region awards, which were presented at a gala dinner hosted at Oxford Belfry, Milton Common, Thame on Friday 5th April. The firm will now go through to compete in the national finals for the chance to win the UK category titles. The national ceremony will be held at the Inter Continental Hotel, Park Lane, London on 20th September.
Barry Mortimer, Director of FMB London, 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. Kisiel Ltd should feel justly proud of their achievement in winning and we wish the firm every success in the national competition.”
If Kisiel 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.
