The team at The VEKA UK Group are thrilled to have been listed in four categories at the G13 Awards – Commercial Project of the Year, Environmental Initiative of the Year, New Product of the Year and Promotional Campaign of the Year.
Dave Jones, The VEKA UK Group’s MD, comments: “This is a fantastic result for us. The G Awards provide a fantastic opportunity for businesses in the glass and glazing industry to be recognised for their hard work and outstanding achievements, and to be shortlisted for four awards is yet another incredible accomplishment for The VEKA UK Group.
“Our listing in the Commercial Project of the Year category comes following our work with customer S&A Developments on two social housing projects in Wigan. The Darwen-based fabricator manufactured the 1000 windows required, using VEKA’s Infinity recycled profile system. Infinity is a high-spec system that offers great sustainability benefits, as well as energy efficiency, which made it the ideal system for these projects.”
The Group is also listed for Environmental Initiative, following an entry that showcased the industry-leader’s massive 2208 tonne saving of carbon since 2008, using various energy saving measures.
Halo’s TwinSash system has also got The VEKA UK Group shortlisted for New Product of the Year, as well as Trade Promotional Campaign of the Year. The revolutionary product has proved its worth in the industry, and is one of the only PVC-U systems to meet Passivhaus requirements. The pioneering system can achieve a U-value of 0.38 W/m²K and reduce noise levels by around 50dB, making it the ideal application for the hotel and educational sectors.
Dave adds: “We are also thrilled to see that four out of the five fabricators in the Fabricator of the Year category are Halo customers, and we will, of course, be cheering for them on the night!”
