A Kettering-based construction firm has been tipped for two top titles at the Celebrating Construction Awards, which recognise the achievements of companies and individuals from across the Midlands.
VincentStokes, which delivers refurbishments in the leisure, retail and healthcare sectors, has been shortlisted as the SME of the Year and its director, Rachel Vincent, is a finalist in the Achiever of the Year category.
A chartered surveyor, Rachel set up VincentStokes in 2003 aged 31, in partnership with Philip Stokes. Under her leadership the company has rapidly expanded, achieving a turnover of £15m last year and employing 15 full-time members of staff.
She said: “We’re really proud to be in the running for two tops awards and to be recognised by our peers for our successes and performance over the past 12 months.
The winners of the awards will be announced at a ceremony in Nottingham on June 19.
