After winning their first ever company awards in April 2017, Aspect Flooring has picked up another win and a handful of industry nominations during the second half of the year.
The company started collecting accolades in spring, at the EMEA Business Excellence Forum. Directors Chris and Laura Frost were jointly awarded CEO of the Year, and Aspect was shortlisted as a finalist in three other categories. The noticeable impact of winning these awards encouraged the team to submit more entries, concentrating on the construction industry as well as local business awards.
“We are thrilled to have received so many nominations this season, both from our industry and from our local community in Fulham. Under the last three years Aspect has undergone an unprecedented period of growth, and award entries are a great way to mark that achievement. If anyone has been considering award entries we’d say go for it – the competition is tough but they’re a rewarding experience, and they’ve definitely spurred us on to achieve more next year.” – Laura Frost, Finance Director
Aspect has received considerable recognition from colleagues in the construction industry. The company was chosen as a finalist for Supplier of the Year at the London Construction Awards 2017, held on 25th October. Shortly afterwards it was announced that Aspect has also been nominated for Materials Supplier of the Year at the CN Specialist Awards. The event is held in association with Construction News, and the awards ceremony will take place on 8th March 2018 at Park Lane’s Grosvenor House Hotel.
"Not only is it great to be able to say that we are finalists, or winners, but these events provide great networking opportunities that can be more important than taking home a trophy." Laura continues, "When contractors from across the construction industry come together we can discuss current trends or issues which we are all facing. It's so important that different parts of the sector cross paths with each other - and celebrating the best that British construction has to offer is a great reason to do that."
Aspect has also chosen to focus on local business awards, as the company has been based in Fulham since its inception in 1994. The company won the title of Best B2B Flooring Supplier at the 2017 Greater London Enterprise Awards, and enjoyed a glamorous evening at Hammersmith Town Hall, following nominations for Best Design & Interiors Company and Best Small Business at the Hammersmith & Fulham Brilliant Business Awards. Fulham boasts the world famous Design Centre Chelsea Harbour as well as neighbouring design hubs like the King’s Road, so these categories are fiercely contested.
Now awards season is over for the year, but having achieved such a range of commendations during 2017, the Aspect team are already looking forward to what 2018 will bring.
