Stepnell collects two top awards for craftsmanship

Stepnell has won two prestigious merit awards for craftsmanship at The Leicestershire & Rutland Joint Consultative Committee Awards.

Recognised at the awards was the firm’s £1.6 million extension and refurbishment of the Wood Trades Centre for Leicester College. Judges praised the team’s attention to detail and care shown throughout the project.

The second award was given for the £1.8 million refurbishment of De Montfort University Student Union Building at The Gateway, Leicester. The accolade recognised the high standard of workmanship displayed throughout the project, while overcoming technical difficulties such as opening the staircase to the first floor.

“I am very proud of the skill and hard work that our team put in to bring these two excellent schemes to life, and delighted that their efforts have been recognised at these awards,” says Thomas Sewell, Stepnell’s Nottingham director. 

The Leicestershire & Rutland Local Joint Consultative Committee for the Building Industry holds annual merit awards for craftsmanship. The Committee comprises of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors; the Association for Consultancy and Engineering and the National Federation of Builders (Leicestershire & Rutland Association).
