2010 Yorkshire post environment award winner...

Decorators to the Tenters project, Netherton, Huddersfield, award-winner of the 2010 Yorkshire Post Environment Award for building projects under £1 million, to whom we specified, sourced and supplied a true environmental paint, fulfilling all the criteria, particularly in regard to low odour and precise colour-matching. In addition we sourced and supplied a paint additive to reduce cold spot surface temperatures and overcome any possible condensation issues associated with structural cold-bridging. Designed by Walton Horsfall Partnership of Shepley, Huddersfield.

television enquiries...

Approached in September 2009 by Lucey Periton of Ricochet Television with regards to the use of some properties we had renovated to be featured in a new programme being producing for BBC1 entitled 'Britain's Empty Houses'. Though the restoration work we had undertaken on numerous properties was more than suitable, the criteria for inclusion when the houses were purchased was not and therefore never featured in the series.
