Yes, it’s true. We are absolutely delighted to have been awarded the coveted ‘Commended’ status by the Association of Professional Landscapers at the annual Awards ceremony yesterday, held at the beautiful Gibson Hall in London.
Around 300 landscapers and other leading figures in the landscaping industry met for networking sessions, a delicious lunch and, of course, the Awards ceremony itself to celebrate and reward excellence in our profession.
Mark Gregory, Chairman of the APL, welcomed guests and highlighted the exceptional quality of the 2014 Award entries. This was undoubtedly the case as we pored over the submissions for each category from the £10 – £15,000 projects, right up to those costing £500,000 and over.
Happily for the Arbworx team, we did not have to wait long to find out how we measured up against the very strong competition and Jon was delighted to accept the ‘Commended’ award on behalf of our team.
The winning entries can be viewed on the APL website here.
Liz Male, Chairman of TrustMark, also spoke on the value of TrustMark to both tradespeople and to customers. The government has recognised the importance of a registered body which lists trustworthy, reliable organisations who operate to Government Endorsed Standards, as opposed to the many other listing organisations which do not audit the work their members undertake. By using a TrustMark registered firm, such as Arbworx, you are using one which is checked and monitored against recognised British, international or industry standards.
