We’re making extra room in our trophy cabinet this week after we picked up the highly prestigious G-Awards Installer of the Year trophy at this year’s very own industry Oscars.
Remarkably, this is the third time in just five years that we have won this award and it is a huge tribute to every single member of the team here that we have been judged to be the best of the best once again.
What makes this award particularly special is that it is awarded only after a rigorous assessment by a panel of independent judges and a site inspection by a technical specialist from the Glass & Glazing Federation.
Just twelve months after it installed windows and doors in a brand new extension at Demelza Hospice Care for Children’s Eltham hospice, The Window Company (Contracts) has been helping the charity out again by repairing and refurbishing all of the fire doors at its hospice in Sittingbourne, Kent.
Demelza provides specialist care and emotional support for children with terminal conditions, whether in family homes across East Sussex or in the family hospices in Sittingbourne and Eltham. Demelza can help families and their loved ones enjoy their time together, for as long as they have.
With fire safety currently under such intense national and local scrutiny, The Window Company (Contracts) has ensured that all 110 doors in the children’s hospice now meet the most up to date requirements.
When Rehau launched its co-extruded PVC-U window and door profile at the start of this year, we were quick to see the potential.
Part of the established Rehau TOTAL70 range, this is a new profile which wraps virgin material around a recycled core. It is a more sustainable alternative to traditional PVC-U profiles, but without any compromise on finish, colour, performance or durability.
While we are not seeing any great clamour for eco-friendly PVC-U windows from many of our clients as yet – their main focus is on how we collect and recycle the PVC-U windows we remove – we do think that it’s important for us to have this product in our range so that we can help to drive demand.
A giant cheque for £10,000 was presented by the team from The Window Company (Contracts) to Moat recently to support the latest project being undertaken by its charitable arm, Moat Foundation.
The donation is an integral part of the pledge made by The Window Company (Contracts) when it was appointed to Moat’s window and door replacement framework in the autumn of 2017 to support the housing provider’s social value activities.
Alongside this, the specialist commercial installer is also providing work placements and supporting community events to benefit Moat residents within the wider region covered by the framework, which includes Essex, London, Kent, Surrey and Sussex.
Award winning commercial installer The Window Company (Contracts) has become an LHC Appointed Company for the first time, after being appointed to the public sector procurement group’s Framework Agreements for both PVC-U and timber window and door products.
From 1st August 2018, the Chelmsford based company is listed on the Home Counties, London and East Anglia frameworks for PVC-U and on the South East England framework for timber.
This was the first time that the Chelmsford based company had tendered to join any LHC framework, so it was a significant achievement to be named on both at the first attempt.
The Window Company (Contracts) has become the first company ever to achieve a Gold rating in the GGF’s GLASS (Goal Less Accidents Safer Sites) Charter Merit Scheme, taking a giant leap into the health and safety record books.
Described as ‘the pinnacle of good Health and Safety management’, Gold is awarded only to companies who can demonstrate that a health and safety culture is embedded right across their business and that the very highest standards are adhered to at every level.
The team from the Chelmsford based commercial window and door installer has upgraded from the GLASS Charter Level Silver 3 which it received last year, having completed the final piece in the jigsaw which was to eliminate the need for its fitters to climb onto the roofs of their vans to remove ladders.
