T&T Facades is delighted to announce being nominated a finalist in the Construction News Specialists Awards 2019 for our work on Cumberland Place – a 12-storey, student accommodation block in Southampton city centre for client Bennett Construction. We’ve been shortlisted in the category of ‘Project of the Year by a Specialist Contractor (subcontract between £1m to £3m).’
T&T Facades tendered for this cladding contract in the wake of the Grenfell disaster and naturally the specification and installation needed to be very high. We also ran this job simultaneously alongside another 12-storey accommodation block in East Street, Southampton making logistical planning very challenging.
Commenting on the award news, Tom Rutter, joint company owner said “Being shortlisted for a Construction News Specialists Award is just amazing. It is testament to the hard work, diligence and commitment of the whole team and we couldn’t be prouder of this achievement”. He added “This is a very high-profile platform with which to promote our services further and we’re excited about the opportunities this could present”.
Representatives of the company have now been invited to present their entry in person to the award judges at Construction News HQ in February, with the winner being announced at a glittering awards ceremony at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London on 27th March 2019.
