Success in regional awards for Fakenham’s Kingsley Building and Groundworks Ltd means it is now up against the nation’s best builders to take a coveted UK title.

The firm won best New Home and Small Renovation Project in the Eastern Counties and now is waiting to hear if it will be named Master Builder of the Year.

The awards ceremony, will be held at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel in London on February 18, when TV presenter and architecture enthusiast Charlie Luxton will be presenting the awards.

The Master Builder of the Year Awards is organised by the Federation of Master Builders (FMB) to find the best builders in the UK. Nominations must come from a satisfied client, and builders are judged on their technical ability together with their customer service skills.

John Watson, FMB Service Director for the Eastern Counties said: “Small local builders are vital to the British economy and the Master Builder of the Year Awards acknowledge the good work that they do.

“For the clients it is about publicly showing their appreciation for a job well done as it is up to them to nominate their builder. This is what makes these awards extra special.

“Year on year we are surprised by the calibre of entries which making judging increasingly difficult. It is heartening to continue to hear about projects where the builder goes above and beyond to make sure the client is delighted with the end results. The national awards will be a very tight contest this year.

“It is a massive honour to be nominated by a client and to win a regional award, the team at Kingsley Building & Groundworks Ltd should feel justly proud of its achievements so far and we wish them every success at the national awards ceremony next month.”

If Kingsley Building & Groundworks Ltd goes on to win the overall Master Builder of the Year title, they will drive away in a brand new commercial vehicle, while the client who nominated the company will win a £3,000 cash prize.
