Training and Dev Initiative FINALIST_g13Build Check, industry experts for testing and certification services in the construction and fenestration industries, has been named as a finalist for Training & Development Initiative of the Year in The G13 Awards.

For the shortlisted Training & Development Initiative, Build Check trained, advised and helped a large number of companies to comply with CE Marking.

“In September 2012 many companies simply didn’t have the knowledge or resources to comply with CE Marking,” says Richard Bate, Build Check’s Technical Director. “Build Check took the lead and created information and charts to guide businesses through the process, hosted seminars at FIT Show and with key industry players to advise businesses on compliance and carried out a widely distributed online and trade press campaign to give much needed accurate information to the industry.

“More than 450 companies came to hear information on compliance at our own CE mark seminars and at a series of seminars from top industry influencers. Many thousands accessed our information as visitor numbers to our website increased by over 300%.

“We are excited to be shortlisted for one of the industry’s most prestigious awards especially as it recognises us for the free training we offered around CE Marking.”

Build Check is competing against four other companies for The Training and Development Initiative of the Year Award, which will be presented at a dinner on Friday 29 November at the London Hilton on Park Lane.
