BA Corsham construction firm scooped two prestigious national gongs at the British Woodworking Federation’s annual awards last month.
Oakwrights Bath Ltd, of Leafield Way, won for technical excellent and innovation in joinery manufacture and for apprentice/trainee of the year, becoming the first company to claim both titles.
The innovation award was given for the firm’s work on renovating a Victorian building in central London, which involved transforming original fixtures and a 1970s extension.
Company director Peter Love said: “We worked under huge time pressure and it needed the combined skills of everyone to mix the modern and traditional practices required by this job. It was full of very fine working, all bespoke shaped work, ogee arch details and curves on curves.”
The company’s second award went to Luke Parry, 26, who joined the firm as an apprentice and worked on the London project.
