THE EVANS GROUP - AWARD WINNERS
Local family run plumbing and heating company, The Evans Group, has done it again! This time collecting 3 awards, which is testament to the group’s commitment to high standards and services to the community. The Evans Group, which celebrated its 70 year anniversary last year, comprises 4 divisions each specialising in different aspects of the plumbing and heating industry. It was Heppelthwaite, the Red Van Plumbers, and R.G.Evans Plumbing and Heating, both part of the group, who received the awards.
BOILER INSTALLER | CONTRACTOR
This award was presented to R.G.Evans for the second year running. It honours an exceptional company for the installation and maintenance of energy efficient boilers and heating systems. It recognises the efforts of fully qualified boiler and heating engineers who provide excellent customer service and demonstrate a high standard of workmanship within their local community.
The award is restricted to those companies that are fully qualified, working in the nominated region and registered with one or more industry trade bodies. R.G.Evans demonstrated clear and impressive energy saving achievements, with the quality of their work being acknowledged by new build developers.
Heppelthwaite the Red Van Plumbers were also shortlisted for this award.
VULNERABLE CUSTOMER SUPPORT
This award was presented to Heppelthwaite, the Red Van Plumbers. This award honours those companies actively engaged in addressing the issue of fuel poverty and vulnerable customer support in the UK. Heppelthwaite, the Red Van Plumbers, successfully managed projects both large and small with local authorities, schools, hospitals and homeowners, installing energy efficient heating solutions to help reduce both the carbon footprint and running costs.
The award also recognises Heppelthwaite’s proven support for projects that involve the local community, such as the BBC’s DIY SOS ‘The Big Build’ project and its support for charities, local events and fund raisers.
PROJECT OF THE YEAR
This award recognises the delivery of exceptional large scale projects, in each of the 11 regional areas around the UK. It is judged by energy savings, excellent customer service and demonstrating a high standard of workmanship throughout.
The project in question was for Crest Nicholson, at Brandon House, London. The commendation was given to R.G.Evans. However, Heppelthwaite provide the servicing and maintenance for the project and should take some of the credit.
New build developers appreciate the advantages of instructing a single company that can provide the whole range of their plumbing and heating requirements. R.G.Evans and Heppelthwaite, the Red Van Plumbers, are part of the Evans Group and support each other on a number of large scale projects for developers, including the multi award winning Bicester Eco Village.
Congratulations to the entire Heppelthwaite and R.G.Evans Team.
THE ENERGY EFFICIENCY AWARDS
RECOGNISING EXCELLENCE IN THE ENERGY EFFICIENCY SECTOR
The Energy Efficiency Awards were launched in July 2015 following the changes in Government Energy Efficiency Policy. These measures help businesses and homeowners reduce their energy bills, tackle fuel poverty and reduce carbon emissions.
The aim of these Awards is to provide public recognition for the excellent work the Energy Efficiency sector is doing in implementing government policy and to help encourage best practice within the industry as it works to improve the UK housing stock.
