West London Business has named Fit Out UK as West London Company of the Year in their West London Business Awards 2021.
They were also named Park Royal Business of the Year. The interior fit out contractor and relocation services provider responsible for the fit out at Habitat, Westfield (pictured), and based in Park Royal since 2006, Fit Out had the chance to demonstrate their innovative capacity at the start of the Covid pandemic when they were contracted to build, in just 14 days, a Tesco Express Supermarket adjacent to London’s Nightingale Hospital, to serve NHS staff. Fit Out achieved this in just 9 days. The project also achieved a 15% cost reduction (compared against model cost), whilst sending zero waste to landfill, and attaining a 99% Health & Safety audit score. This led to a contract with Tesco to deliver over a hundred Express stores in the next year.
Jamie Mason, Commercial Director of Fit Out UK, said of the win: “We are delighted to be named West London Business of the Year. A huge thanks to everyone at Fit Out UK and our wider supply chain who have worked tirelessly throughout what has been a very challenging year.”
The eighth edition of the awards once again recognised individual achievements; with Abbas Lalljee of Reach Food Service being named West London Business Leader of the Year and Patrick Flannery of Flannery Plant Hire awarded the Lifetime Achievement in Business Award. Mike Langan of Hillingdon Chamber of Commerce was recognised with a special award for Services to the Business Community.
Another notable winner of the evening was Perivale based Everglade Windows who took home the Manufacturing/Reprocessing Business of the Year award for the fourth straight year. The win takes their tally of WLB Awards overall to six including West London Company of the Year in 2018.
Andrew Dakers, Chief Executive of West London Business said: “In these tough times for the business community the West London Business Awards 2021 once again provided a fun filled evening where everyone could relax a bit and discover what their peers have achieved in 2020. The best practice and innovation that has been pioneered, and we are able to showcase, is truly remarkable.”
