AIS Interior Fit-outs Gold Award 2013

In recognition of its work carried out on behalf of Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water at Glaslyn in Newport, Bbi has been presented with the Gold Award in the Interior Fit-Out category at the 2013 AIS Contractors Awards. The awards, which are designed to help promote high levels of craftsmanship and design, are presented to AIS contractor members who have delivered outstanding projects of exceptional quality and value. Bbi received the award for its work for Glaslyn, a former call centre that was transformed into a new high-spec water testing laboratory with office facilities.

AIS Interior Fit-outs Award - Value Band Up to £500,000.00

Bbi submitted their fit out for CODA plc Headquarters in Harrogate, to this prestigious award scheme. Competition was fierce but Bbi's contract went on to win the Gold Award in the 2007 AIS Contractors awards presented at the Dorchester Hotel in London. On presenting the award, Robert Fry - European Managing Director of Swanke Hayden Connell Architects - in his role as Guest Judge, commented: "With a construction stage of only eight weeks, this vibrant training suite project demonstrated an exceptional level of service and client engagement to achieve a very high standard of fit-out. The design and build contract utilised new design talent from the outset and the effort put in to achieve the successful co-ordination of materials, furniture and fittings is exemplary."
