A Berkshire-based company has seen its commitment to staff development recognised at a national trade body awards.
Biocraft was honoured by the Property Care Association (PCA) at its annual awards ceremony, held at The Slate, University of Warwick.
The company, of School Road, Reading, secured the Training and Staff Development award, sponsored by CITB, and a Highly Commended accolade in the Aquobex-sponsored Outstanding Customer Service Category.
A record number of entries were received for the awards, which were selected by an independent panel of three judges, Dr Hector Altamirano, a building scientist for UCL, Paul Cribbens, Standards Manager at NHBC and Ray Ferris, Head of Compliance and Standards for the Government-endorsed scheme for trades in and around the home, TrustMark.
Biocraft carries out specialist damp-proofing, timber treatments and basement waterproofing and conversions across Berkshire, Surrey, Hampshire and Oxfordshire.
Martin Fosbrook, who is the managing director of Biocraft said: “We are very proud that our work to develop the most important part of our business, our people and our customers, has been recognised at a national level.”
Stephen Hodgson, chief executive of the PCA, said: “The judges felt that Biocraft delivered tailored learning and access to recognised qualifications, helping their staff to develop a solid skill set.
“It is a well-deserved result for the company.”
