Essex landscapers Woods Paving won the ultimate prize at this year’s Brett Landscaping and Building Products annual Approved Installer Awards, which celebrates the achievements of paving contractors who are members of the company’s Brett Approved Installer (BAI) scheme.
Woods Paving secured National Installer of the Year, as well as winning Regional Installer of the Year (South East).
Kent-based Paramount Paving – National Installer of the Year for the past two years – was narrowly beaten to the top spot this year but still managed to secure two category wins for Outstanding Project Portfolio and Best Small Driveway as well as being runner up in other categories.
ProPave and Leicester Drives & Gardens were the other Regional Installer winners, for the South West and North regions, respectively. The latter company also took home the award for Best Large Patio.
Rounding out the driveway and patio awards were Bowen Paving Limited, who won for Best Large Driveway, and Muddy Boots, the winner of Best Small Patio.
The awards are open to all BAIs, who submit their portfolios for scrutiny by an independent judging panel of landscaping specialists, including paving expert Tony McCormack. Further awards for Contractors’ Choice were voted for at the event by the installers themselves.
“This is the eighth year of the BAI Awards, and we take real pleasure in seeing the sheer diversity of the work being completed using Brett products,” said Alan Smith, managing director of Brett Landscaping and Building Products.
“Past winners never sit on their laurels and remain committed to giving each new customer the highest standards of service and professionalism; while every year they are joined by equally talented first-time winners.”
