A RUGBY firm has scooped a national award for its work on one of the country’s largest social housing contracts.

Nationwide Windows in Somers Road won the Public Sector Project of the Year award at the G10 awards - held at Wembley Stadium.

For the contract, Nationwide refurbished more than 29 ,000 Nottingham homes to modern industry standards in a contract awarded by Nottingham City Homes.

One of the distinguishing factors recognised by the judges was Nationwide Windows’ use of hi-tech innovation to make significant improvements to the original design specifications.

John Whalley, managing director of Nationwide Windows, thanked all the staff at the company’s Somers Road site.

“Winning G10 Public Sector Project of the Year is testament to the hard work and dedication of the people within our company,” he said.

“Also, we couldn’t have done it without the support of key suppliers such as Eurocell, who worked with us to develop a cost-effective ‘A’ rated window using end-of-life frames from the site.”

Nationwide Windows has achieved a near doubling of turnover over the last 12 months, which it puts down to excellent customer service, ongoing investment and internal staff development.

Patrick Bateman, CEO of Eurocell, the company’s supply partner, added: “Congratulations to Nationwide Windows. They thoroughly deserved to win this award.

“They have put a huge amount of effort and investment into making this project a success and it is encouraging to see all their hard work recognised.”
