BWF members JELD-WEN and Howdens Joinery have been recognised in the Construction Products Innovation and Achievement (CPIA) 2012 report for their Howdens Burford door project. The project had previously been announced as the winner of the 2011 John Hedgecock Memorial Award for technical excellence and innovation in the joinery industry.
The JELD-WEN Howdens Burford door was launched last year as a special moulded door exclusively designed to compliment Howdens Joinery’s best selling kitchen range, and to provide a family of kitchen frontals and matching joinery doors. The Shaker-style Burford range includes four and six panel designs from small, wardrobe sized doors to the largest metric sizes, glazed doors and fire door options.
You can see further information on the project on page 40 of the Construction Products Innovation and Achievement 2012 report. The CPIA has been successfully running for eight years and is established as an important and popular showcase for the industry’s most innovative products and processes.
BWF Policy executive Matt Mahony commented on the news:
“We are delighted to see our members’ products being recognised and held up to the entire construction industry as examples of innovation and achievement. As well as being a technically excellent piece of work, the project also met the sustainability and resource efficiency objectives set out in the brief, and is 98 percent manufactured from Chain of Custody wood and woodfibre.
“Through difficult times for the construction industry, our members are continuing to innovate and improve their products, and we are delighted to say that the entries for this years John Hedgecock Memorial Award are also of an exceptionally high quality.”
Welland Timber Products Ltd took the inaugural John Hedgecock Memorial Award for technical excellence and innovation in 2010 for their role in the extraordinary restoration of Horace Walpole’s Villa in Strawberry Hill, Twickenham.
