Bridgend-based builder scoops top industry award for life changing work
Property Building Maintenance (Wales) Ltd was crowned the winner for its work on a sheltered accommodation project. The works entailed a full refurbishment of an independent site of 17 units owned by Tai Tarian Housing Association to meet Welsh Housing Quality standards, RNIB compliance and Occupational Therapist reports and owner recommendations.
The completed scheme was finished to the very highest of standards and has enabled the residents, who are mainly elderly and less abled, to enjoy much improved quality of life within the new facilities. The team at Property Building Maintenance (Wales) Ltd have stated that enhancing the lives of the residents and knowing they have made a real difference made the project hugely rewarding to them as a company. The judges were particularly impressed by the fact that this project was delivered ahead of schedule, under budget, and carried out whilst the residents remained in the building.
Ifan Glyn, Director of FMB Cymru, said: “The Master Builder Awards give the FMB the opportunity to celebrate a job well done and for clients to say thank you to their builders. For the construction industry, it is an opportunity to celebrate all that is good about small local building firms and their contribution to the UK economy.
“Time and time again, we have been impressed with just how far these builders will go to ensure their client is happy. It is this dedication that we want to celebrate. Property Building Maintenance (Wales) Ltd should feel justly proud of their achievement in winning and we wish the firm every success in the national competition.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you both and all your team for all the hard work that was put in, firstly to complete the development and secondly for managing the defect period this last year. It was all greatly appreciated and was really good to work with yourselves on this one.

I’ve had extensive repair work done at my property over the last few weeks. After having multiple problems with previous contractors, I was understandably worried about the new contractors in to do work.
The work that has been carried out has been absolutely amazing, the workmen have gone above and beyond to help and keep me informed of the next stages. They have worked so hard to complete the work much quicker than I have expected, given it was a big job, they have tidied after themselves even though I told them not to worry, they have been polite and extremely helpful.
I just wanted to make you aware what an amazing team you have working for your company, please will you pass on my thanks and praise to your team as without them these last few weeks would have been a lot harder.
