Awards

After the success of being shortlisted for the Pitched Roofing Awards last year we are extremely delighted to announce that we are an official finalist for the UK Roofing Awards hosted by NFRC.

Allard Construction Ltd has been nominated for the Lead Roofing award for our St Marks Church project  where we undertook the re-roofing works of the Grade One listed building. This was both a brilliant and challenging project to be associated with; we met several design challenges due to the Heritage of the building but easily overcame these and as result the final project succeeded the Client’s desires within budget and within the contract time frame.

We are also up for the Industry Choice award which is decided by the public. Click the link below to view our shortlisted St Marks project and make sure you get voting!!
