This is my last blog for 2015 and I’m really pleased that we end the year on a high.
Last Friday we glammed up for Taylor Wimpey (TW) Exeter’s Christmas Party at Woodbury Park Hotel. We anticipated a good evening, winding down for the Christmas break and catching up with some of our TW colleagues we’ve worked with over the past eight months.
The venue looked amazing, the atmosphere was great and the food was gorgeous. However what made the night perfect was watching Neil accept the award for Subcontractor/Supplier of the Year for NBH.
After the meal and before the real partying got started, Taylor Wimpey Exeter’s managing director, Colin Palmer, recognised some of the team’s stars of the year. The final award recognised the team’s subcontractors and suppliers too.
We began working with TW in April this year after successfully tendering for the brickwork contract for Parc Hendrawna in Perranporth. TW were actively looking for new subcontractors and we were (quite rightly) put through a robust selection process before being awarded the contract. Neil has worked hard with his team to deliver the promises we initially made. The award cements all the great feedback we have received over the past 8 months from site to director level.
The first thing we did was to contact our team and let them know the great news. To be honest, part of our excitement was sharing the news with them too. It’s a fantastic achievement for us all. The site team have done a brilliant job; they have consistently delivered on quality and production and deserve this recognition too.
Needless to say we spent the rest of the evening celebrating, visiting the obligatory photo booth, dancing and drinking more than what we had planned too. Neil took the award to site this week to show the team before we put it on display in the office.
Both Neil and I are proud of our team and NBH’s achievements this year and are looking forward to 2016.
Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
