A construction firm has scooped a top regional award.

F. A. Lane & Son, based in Larkshall Road, Chingford, won a Master Builder of the Year award from the Federation of Master Builders (FMB).

The company received the accolade in the 'Large Renovation Project' category for its work on a large extension on a house in Loughton, Essex.

F. A. Lane & Son now goes through to the FMB's national finals, which will be held at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge Hotel in London in March.

All those in the competition have to be nominated by one of their customers.

Neil McQue, FMB Services Director for London, said: “The Master Builder of the Year Awards give clients the opportunity to celebrate a job well done and to thank their builder.

"The standard of entries this year is amongst the highest we have seen and reflects the expertise, attention to detail and professionalism of the region’s builders.

"What really stands out is the extent to which our regional winners were prepared to go beyond the call of duty to build a good working relationship with their clients to achieve the best possible result for them. 

“F. A. Lane & Son should feel justly proud of their achievement in winning the Large Renovation Project Award, and we wish them success in the national competition.”

This accolade is fantastic and I call upon the Directors to be awarded more permanent recognition in the form of an MBE or more.

Builders are too often criticised for being 'cowboys' and 'shoddy' and it is nice to see that British Builders still exist and are not like the characters on Auf Weidesen Petshop
