R. Davidson wins ‘Sub-contractor of the Year’ at national homebuilder’s event
Trevor Mutch, managing director of R. Davidson in Banchory, was last week presented with the award for ‘Sub-contractor of the Year’ by Barratt and David Wilson Homes North Scotland, during the homebuilders first Scotland-wide contractors’ event.
‘Working Together’ is an annual event held by Barratt and David Wilson Homes North Scotland, with the purpose of bringing together key partners and contractors to share important information and discuss their plans and opportunities for the future. This year the event took place digitally, bringing together businesses from Aberdeen, Inverness, and Dundee, instead of holding three separate events.
A key part of these events is the presentation of two awards, ‘Sub-contractor of the Year’ and ‘Supplier of the Year’, to recognise companies who have excelled whilst working on their developments in the past year.
R. Davidson is one of the longest established painting contractors in the North of Scotland and has been working for Barratt and David Wilson Homes North Scotland for over 15 years. Its team is currently working on seven developments across the region, in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Inverness, and Elgin.
Trevor Mutch said: “It’s always great to be recognised by a client but finding out we had won this award came as complete surprise. We are hugely proud of the working relationship we have with Barratt and David Wilson Homes North Scotland, both on site and between our management teams. We strive to work alongside them, with open communication and a proactive approach to getting things done, which has been especially important with the challenges of the past 18 months. This award is the result of a true team effort, from our apprentices to our management team, and we are absolutely delighted.
“We are also over the moon to find out that this award includes a £500 donation to the charity of our choice, and for us it has to be Cash for Kids, specifically their Coats for Kids campaign. Their goal is to ensure that every child has a warm coat for the winter, as too many local families have to choose between putting food on the table or buying warm clothing for their kids. This generous donation will go to very good use.”
Kevin Urquhart, construction director of Barratt and David Wilson Homes North Scotland, said: “It is extremely important that we take this opportunity to thank the companies who support us, and it was a pleasure to present Trevor and his team with the award for our 2021 ‘Sub-contractor of the Year’. The team at R. Davidson have always delivered an excellent service for us, and the level of support they gave us as we came out of lockdown in April was an important part of our efforts to continue delivering homes and ensuring we provided an excellent service to our customers. On behalf of our management team, I’d like to thank them once again for all their efforts.”
