At McIntosh DBR, we’re always proud to provide an excellent service to our customers that delivers fantastic results. But beyond this, we’re absolutely thrilled to be getting local and regional recognition for the work we do in the form of awards.
You may remember that back in April 2016, we announced we were the winners of the prestigious Best Extension to an Existing Home at the Mendip District Council Building Excellence Awards 2016 for the work we carried on restoring and renovating a barn in Somerset. This win also led us to automatically be nominated as finalists in the regional LABC South West Building Excellence Awards 2016, which took place on 1st July 2016.
With the awards now over, we’re incredibly pleased to announce that we took second place, amidst stiff competition from the entire South West Region. And although we weren’t the overall winners, we still see this achievement and accolade as a victory. It only goes to strengthen our reputation as quality award winning building contractors, as well as our commitment to delivering exceptional project management, workmanship and customer service on every level.
TAKING ON A CHALLENGE
What this whole process has shown us throughout is that we are continually striving to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations. The winning project that won us the Best Extension to an Existing Building Award 2016 in April and second place in the regional awards, was an incredibly challenging and rewarding project.
With any barn conversion there are going to be challenges to overcome, but when you’re working to restore an existing home with a family living in it, there can be even more considerations to take into account, and this was definitely the case with the Bean Hill Farm conversion. We not only had to ensure that all the building work was sound and in line with the original structure, but we also had to make sure we weren’t intruding too much on the family during our work there. Furthermore we also had to successfully and effectively blend modern design with the traditional building structure and features to make the best use of the space within the home.
Thankfully the entire project was a great success, with the owners and us left feeling very satisfied, especially given that it led to us winning and being runners up in two high regarded awards.
As award winning building contractors, we’re now looking forward to more exciting projects for the future that might help us take the top spot next year!
