TrustMark, the only Government-endorsed scheme for all trades in and around the home, is praising one of its firms for winning a top accolade for its industry.  The Master Builder of the Year Awards recognise and promote the very best work undertaken by members of the Federation of Master Builders (FMB), a TrustMark scheme operator.

Rockingham Construction Ltd, a TrustMark registered firm of builders for nine years, was presented with the ‘Energy Efficiency Project of the Year’ Award 2015 at the 12th Master Builder of the Year Awards, the FMB’s nationwide search to find the best builders in Britain.  The company, which was nominated by a satisfied customer, was given the award for transforming a leaky 1870s period property into a warm and energy efficient home, focusing mostly on insulation.

James Barby, Director of Rockingham Construction Ltd said: "We are proud of our trade and having our name registered with TrustMark is important to our company as consumers know that we are a reputable, quality firm working to Government-endorsed standards. The TrustMark badge also offers reassurance to people going through the process of choosing builders and contractors as it only lists the reputable trades.  I was delighted when we were selected as a national winner of the FMB’s Master Builder of the Year awards - it is fantastic news for us as a company to win such a prestigious honor but also to know that our customers recognise and value the work we do for them.” 

Commenting on the winner, Simon Ayers, Chief Executive of TrustMark, said: “This award demonstrates a superb showcase of design, skills and professionalism and is a celebration of the quality and commitment that has been achieved - an excellent example of an FMB and TrustMark registered firm.  We are thrilled for Rockingham Construction and they should be delighted to be recognised as being among the very best in the building industry.” 

The FMB is a TrustMark scheme operator and has been members of the scheme since it was set up over ten years ago. The FMB is the UK's largest trade association in the building sector.
