At Roofing Consultants, we are proud to be one of the most highly accredited and award winning commercial roofing companies in the North West, and throughout the rest of the UK. Of course the quality of workmanship on any commercial roofing or industrial roofing project should speak for itself, but roofing contractors work to gain awards and accreditations to demonstrate that they are sufficiently skilful and competent.
When comparing industrial roofing and commercial roofing contractors, it’s not just about how many accolades they have, you need to look at the individual accreditations and check that they are from reputable bodies. With this in mind, we wanted to go through some of our best awards and accreditations that commercial roofing companies can receive, so that you know the crucial ones to look out for.
The Guild of Master Craftsmen
In order to be accredited as a member of the Guild of Master Craftsmen, any roofing contractors would need to be carefully vetted for high quality workmanship, competence, and be able to demonstrate extensive experience in complex projects and heritage sites. Those considered for the guild need to have a minimum of Level 3 NVQ or be able to prove that they have served a three-year apprenticeship.
All applicants who wish to gain Master Craftsmen status have to submit a portfolio of evidence to show that they are skilled contractors who can be trusted. A ceremony in the City of London each year sees successful applicants recognised for the highest levels of craftsmanship. Successful roofing contractors who become members of the Guild of Master Craftsmen are then entered into the database of skilled and reputable professionals.
Achilles Building Confidence
The Achilles Building Confidence is a highly sought after accreditation and risk management standard for many commercial roofing companies in the UK. Any commercial roofing and industrial roofing contractors who have this accreditation gain a place amongst some of the biggest and best companies in the sector.
It’s a rigorous accreditation standard designed to meet the increasingly demanding legislative and risk management needs of construction clients, in order to drive best practice forward. Commercial roofing companies who are successful will have showcased their top performance in key business areas, such as health and safety, environment, quality and compliance.
NGRC Safety in Roofing Award – Gold Excellence in Health & Safety 2015
The annual Safety in Roofing Award scheme is designed to recognise NFRC members who have a proven track record of being committed to the highest health and safety standards. The awards have become an industry-wide event that celebrates roofing contractors for their outstanding quality of workmanship and safety within the UK roofing industry.
A team of independent adjudicators determine the award winners from companies covering the full spectrum of roofing disciplines. Companies are judged on a wide range of specific criteria on the work they carry out, including degree of difficulty, aesthetics, problem-solving, health and safety, workmanship and environmental qualities.
Member of the British Safety Council
It’s the largest corporate health and safety membership organisation, with a focus on recognising companies and roofing contractors who have a dedication to excellent safety and wellbeing standards in the workplace.
The British Safety Council holds its International Safety Awards every year, which has ten separate categories, including naming the best in the country for safety. It helps organisations of all sizes, from startups to multinationals, develop effective policies and processes to deliver health and safety best practice. Roofing contractors who are members have indicated their high level of trusted safety expertise.
These are just a handful of the many awards and accreditations that our roofing and cladding contractors here at Roofing Consultants have under their belts. We are always immensely proud to receive recognition for the high quality and professional work we carry out, along with our continuous dedication to excellent customer service.
These accolades just serve to highlight how we’ve become one of the leading commercial roofing companies in the North West, and the whole of the UK. Our highly-trained, accredited and award winning contractors are waiting to deliver a wide range of services to suit any of your commercial roofing or industrial roofing needs.
