The FMB Awards celebrate excellence in the building industry.

Simmons Contstruction were awarded the Master Builder Award, taking the prize for best Commercial Project in the Federation of Master Builders’(FMB) North West region.

Now in its 13th year, the Master Builder Awards continues to be a “flagship for high-quality building work”.

Organised by the Federation of Master Builders (FMB), the awards programme is unique in that any project entered by the builder must be backed up by the customer – giving home owners the opportunity to support those building companies that have delivered exceptional results.

Simmons Construction will now go through to compete in the national finals for their chance to win the UK category title.

The awards will be presented at a ceremony held at the Intercontinental Park Lane Hotel in London on September 15, hosted by TV presenter and building enthusiast Nick Knowles.

The team at Simmons Construction were presented the award for the work completed on a school science and art block.

Steve Laurence, FMB North Director said: “The Master Builder Awards give the FMB the opportunity to celebrate a job well done and for clients to say thank you to their builders.

“For the building industry it is an opportunity to celebrate all that is good about small local builders and their importance to the UK economy.

“Time and time again we have been impressed with just how far these builders will go to ensure their client is happy. It is this dedication that we want to celebrate.

“Simmons Construction should feel justly proud of this achievement in winning and we wish them every success in the national competition.”

If Simmons Construction wins the overall Master Builder Awards title, selected from all category winners, the company will receive a brand new Vauxhall Light Commercial Vehicle valued at £20,000.

The clients will also receive a cheque for £1,000.
