Top Installers recognised by Brett at Awards Ceremony

The highest standards of professionalism in driveway and patio installation have been recognised by Brett Landscaping at the company’s annual Approved Installer Awards, announced at a ceremony at the world-famous Belfry golf resort in February 2013.

Now in their sixth year, the Awards are eligible to all Brett Approved Installers nationwide.  Shortlisted entries are judged by a panel of landscaping specialists including industry paving expert Tony McCormack.

Brett Landscaping has increased the number of categories for the 2012 Awards, reflecting both the growing diversity of driveway and patio projects undertaken by Approved Installers, and the exceptional work they produce.

In recognition of the high standard of entries, Brett has introduced a new award category for 2012 chosen by the installers themselves.  As Alan Smith, Managing Director of Brett Landscaping, explained, “Voting for the Contractors’ Choice Award on the day of the event was extremely well received and we’re delighted to be able to give our contractors the opportunity to have a say in the results.” The inaugural Contractors’ Choice Award was won by Arun Driveways from West Sussex.

The quality of entries has also been reflected in a change to the coveted Installer of the Year Award, which is now split between National Installer of the Year and two Regional Installers of the Year.  For 2012, Kent-based Paramount Paving has won the former Award, with Arun Driveways and 4 Seasons Paving Company from Derbyshire taking the regional prizes.

For Paramount Paving, this represents the second year running that the firm has been recognised, after taking the 2011 Award for Technical, Environmental & Creative Design.   Company owner John McGinlay observed, “Our industry often gets a bad press from ‘cowboy’ installers, so it’s hugely gratifying to work with a brand like Brett Landscaping that is happy to celebrate the work of quality installers.

“Last year’s Award had a huge impact on reinforcing our credibility with customers, so we’re delighted to be amongst the winners again!” he added.  Paramount Paving also secured Best Project Portfolio 2012.

Alan Smith underlined the benefits of the Brett Approved Installer scheme, saying, “Brett prides itself on providing only the best paving, yet customer satisfaction depends on getting the installation right as well.  These Awards are our way of congratulating our installation partners across the UK for the sterling work they do.”
