We are absolutely delighted to announce that we have been announced Business of the Year at The Lewes Business Awards 2015 which is a huge honour. To be voted Lewes and District Business of the Year is an incredible achievement and a wonderful honour, how do we better that locally?

I am obviously a very proud person to receive this accolade, but everyone involved with the company can also feel very proud as they have helped to make this possible. As an organisation we have very strong old fashion beliefs that quality and customer service is paramount, and all employees buy into that. Everyone engaged by the company are treated in the same way and are part of a big extended family, and that is what helps us become successful in my opinion.

Working in the Construction Industry during this past recession has been extremely difficult on occasions but we are still here telling the story as they say ,so to be honoured with this award is amazing. This award also compliments the recent award that we received at the Lewes and Wealden Business Awards for Quality Customer Service another fantastic honour, that we are very proud of.
