We were delighted that our Bordon branch won the Hard Landscaping Display of the Year award at the 2019 Builders' Merchants Awards for Excellence.  These prestigious awards were presented by Dame Kelly Holmes DBE at the London Hilton Park Lane, and celebrate the industry’s best and brightest in the business nationally.

The same landscaping display has also been nominated for Showroom of the Year at the 2021 BMJ Industry Awards.  Unlike the Builders' Merchants Awards, the winners of the BMJ Industry Awards are decided by a vote, so we encourage you to vote for us here!

BMN 2019 Winner & BMJ 2021 Finalist

Following the expansion of our Bordon branch, our outdoor landscaping displays were created, containing 15 individual gardens.  These displays showcase a variety of products including paving, block paving, walling, composite decking, fencing, artificial grass, decorative stone, arches and sleepers - all complimented by professional planting.  Imagery of these displays have even featured in Pavestone's brochure!  We’re thrilled that our efforts were rewarded by winning this national award at the Builders’ Merchants Awards for Excellence - the equivalent of the Oscars for the merchanting industry - and that once again the same displays have been shortlisted for the BMJ Industry Awards in 2021!

In 2018 our Bordon kitchen & bathroom showroom scooped the Showroom of the Year award at the Builders’ Merchants Awards for Excellence following an extensive refit in 2017, and the same showroom also made the finalist stage of the 2019 BMJ Industry Awards!  Also in 2018, it was a great achievement to have been voted among the top three Independent Merchants in the country (with between 1-10 branches), and also be runners-up for Website & Digital Initiative of the Year in recognition of our new app and e-commerce website.
