Scandor Landscape Contractors, have been awarded a British Association of Landscape Industries (BALI) award within the Community & Schools Development category for the courtyard area at Porchester Community School.
A BALI award is only given to those schemes which demonstrate the highest standard of quality and workmanship. The level of competition within each category is intense. Each scheme is visited by a member of the judging panel, all of whom are leading industry experts. The panel reviews all potential awards and determines the National Award winners for each category.
Reflecting on this year’s adjudication process, Greg Allen, chair of BALI’s judging panel said: “As BALI Awards judges we all see this task as a privilege…We are rarely disappointed by the standard of workmanship, horticultural knowledge and design expertise we are asked to judge…We are not here to reward achievement of the standards we expect of a BALI member, rather to recognise when members have really excelled and their work represents outstanding delivery.
“We have been delighted to judge this year’s entries and I congratulate every winner, who can be enormously proud of their achievements.”
David Brew, managing director of Scandor said: “We are delighted to secure this prestigious award, the wide range of materials and surfaces installed within the inaccessible location by our highly skilled, directly employed staff is a recognition of their abilities and I am very proud of what they have achieved.”
The awards ceremony will be held in central London in December when the Principal and Grand Awards will be announced.
