As JML Contracts goes from strength to strength, we are delighted to be recognised with award accolades from within our own industry and also a wider business network.
We were delighted to have been shortlisted in two categories for the 2018 Scottish SME Business Awards – the Family Run Business and Business of the Year (under 30 staff) categories.
In January 2018, we were delighted to have reached the final of the FSB (Federation of Small Businesses) 2018 Business Awards in Scotland. Our SIPs (Structural Insulated Panels) were recognised in the Business & Product Innovation category. These awards showcase the best small businesses from the length and breadth of the UK, offering national recognition for those who have made the biggest impression over the last twelve months.
All at JML Contracts are delighted to have won the ‘Best SIPs Home’ award at the recent Build It Magazine awards in London on 22nd September.
This national awards programme has been run by Build It magazine for six years, and this year saw businesses enter projects across 25 categories in the self and custom build markets.
John Langley, Director of JML Contracts, commented: “We were absolutely delighted to receive this award. We did face stiff competition from other, much larger businesses in this category and were pleased that the judges identified the complexity of this project and chose us. They commented particularly on our innovative approach to the structural engineering of the project and our commitment to delivering a project that otherwise would have been unachievable within the budget had we not used SIPs. Winning awards like this, on a national stage, really highlights the quality and service that our whole team offers. This is a great win for everyone at JML Contracts.”
This project was also been shortlisted in the Best Custom and Self Build category in Structural Timber Awards 2017, which took place on 10th October.
