Winners of the 21st H&V News Awards, celebrated on April 16 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, have received further praise from local press coverage.
South West Business highlighted Cheltenham-based Adey Professional Heating Solutions’ win at the industry Oscars. It was crowned winner in the Service and Maintenance Initiative of the Year category.
Chief executive Kelvin Stevens said: “We’re delighted. To have our best-practice approach to heating service and maintenance judged as best in class at the biggest awards in the industry is recognition for a huge amount of work from the entire team over recent years.
“Our H&V Awards success will hopefully help drive our best-practice message for improved maintenance. In doing so, we’ll continue helping installers to deliver far more efficient, cost-effective and safer heating systems for their customers.”
This year reported record attendance, with almost 1,200 attendees, as well as a record number of entries (200).
The Saddleworth Independent, Saddleworth News and Oldham Evening Chronicle covered the moment that Debbie Abrahams, Labour MP for Oldham East and Saddleworth, won the prestigious B&ES Gold Award for her Be Fair – Pay on Time campaign, which raises awareness of the ill effects of late payment.
Barden Energy was awarded the Off-Grid Installer of the Year category and was highly commended in the District Heating Project of the Year category for the Armathwaite Hall Hotel biomass district heating system.
Speaking to the North West Evening Mail, Barden Energy managing director Ken Kneale said: “This is a truly amazing achievement, especially as we were up against such strong competition. The H&V News Awards are often described as the Oscars for the building services industry. Winning such a prestigious award is an honour and an endorsement for Barden from a nationally recognised organisation.”
