Media and Awards
When you’re having work done on your home, you want to know that you’re in safe hands. And with Eclipse Property Solutions you most certainly are.
Not only were we recognised at the Master Builder of the Year 2011 Awards, but we’re also members of the Federation of Master Builders. We’re especially proud of our membership as members of this trade association go through a stringent application process. Becoming a member really does demonstrate that you provide the highest standards of workmanship.
To become a member you have to provide two references (a customer reference and a professional reference), have one of your building jobs inspected and undergo a series of checks (including a credit check). You also have to prove that you have both employer and public liability insurance.
We’ve also been featured on TV and helped to stamp out unscrupulous builders in the BBC1 programme ‘Cowboy Trap’. On the show we inspected poor work, explained what should have been done and advised how to rectify the outstanding issues.
We were also asked to appear in a property programme with Sarah Beeney on Channel 4 to use our building skills to repair some poor work done by a previous builder.
In the Master Builder of the Year 2011 Awards, we scooped the prize for Best Small Renovation Project in London. This top industry award from the Federation of Master Builders really is a mark of our high quality work and commitment to customer care as every entry is nominated by a satisfied customer.
We were nominated by Mrs Amanda Staton from Teddington for the ground floor extension and upstairs remodelling work we did in her home. She said, “We could not have been more happy with our choice of builder” and has even invited us back to makeover her garden.
We battled it out against hundreds of other builders in the nationwide search to find the best builders in Britain. And we’re exceptionally proud to have won this award, which recognises both our technical abilities and customer service skills.
You can read more of Amanda’s comments and what other people have said about our work on our customer feedback page.
This year Andy was asked to do a presentation on behalf of the Federation of Master Builders at the Homebuilding and Renovating show at The Excel Centre in London. Being a Board Member in the London region, Andy was keen to do this presentation which was entitled “How to choose a building contractor” as he fully understands the difficulties for the majority of people in choosing the right builder.
The Homebuilding and Renovation Show is the UK’s biggest self-build and renovating event (http://www.homebuildingshow.co.uk/home) Andy spoke to a good size audience explaining how to choose the right contractor to carry out your building works. He answered many questions afterward and then was on the FMB stand for the rest of the day where he spoke to several more people.
