The company has been shortlisted in the timber company of the year, vertical sliding window company of the year and bifolding door manufacturer of the year categories with managing director Nicola Harrison receiving recognition in the director of the year category at the National Fenestration Awards 2022.

Bereco was nominated for the awards by members of the fenestration industry and this year the organisers received the largest number of nominations on record.

The company offers a 10-year warranty on all their products and a six-year warranty on installation in addition to an insurance backed guarantee. The firm uses only FSC 100 per cent timber and is already ahead of the anticipated future energy efficiency requirements coming in the 2025 release of the Future Homes and Building Standard, practising industry-leading sustainability and energy efficiency processes.


Urbana wins small consultancy of the year

Sheffield-based planning consultancy, Urbana, has won Small Consultancy of the Year at the Awards for Planning Excellence, hosted by the Royal Town Planning Institute in Yorkshire. The awards celebrate outstanding plans, projects and people that demonstrate the power of planning, highlighting exceptional examples of how planning and planners have a positive impact on our quality of life.

CEO Adam Murray collected the award last month at the ceremony in Aspire Leeds.

He said: “Winning this award demonstrates that living by our strong values and delivering schemes that we truly believe in, to make cities better, is recognised across our industry and is evidence of what can be achieved by prioritising great urbanism.”
