BUILD Home and Garden Awards 2023 2 ABOUT THE HOME & GARDEN AWARDS 2023 BUILD Magazine is proud to welcome you to the sixth annual Home and Garden Awards! We are excited to be hosting this popular programme once again in 2023, where we will aim to recognise the top performers and leading innovators working in the field today. The pandemic was extremely challenging for many industries, with multiple enforced lockdowns limiting operations and putting businesses under immense financial strain. The Home and Garden sector, however, was able to endure through these difficult and unfamiliar circumstances by providing a service for the public who were suddenly spending most of their time at home. The Home Improvement market experienced drastic growth during 2020, and this surge has continued throughout subsequent years, as homeowners internationally have been committing more time and money to Interior Design, Gardening, Home Decoration, and Kitchen & Bathroom projects than ever before. Experts are predicting that Garden Landscaping will achieve long term growth in residential settings, as the more healthconscious younger generation begin to get on the property ladder and drive expansion in this sector. Gardens provide a space for outdoor exercise and the ability to home-grow fresh produce, so as Health & Fitness trends remain popular amongst Millennials the Landscaping Services industry looks set to significantly benefit in coming years.

Thus, it is able, each season, to continue adding complementary pieces to its collection, including furniture, fabrics, and home accessories which it knows its customers will adore. Indeed, La Residence Interiors is committed to staying ahead of trends, always exploring how it can expand its colour and fabric selection for its upholstered furniture, aspiring to offer 500 different product and colour choices by 2025. As such, the team has observed an increased interest amongst customers to reinstate their dining rooms, as well as a desire for smallersized tables among those with new-build properties. To accommodate this, La Residence Interiors plans to add more sizes to its product offering. The company recently unveiled its Cavendish and Westcott collections: two striking new lines of coffee, console, and side tables which put a modern twist on its classic style. Combining the warm gold bronze metal with rich wood, these products offer a contemporary touch on interiors. Sarah says, “The challenge of designing this collection was to create an elegant design that perfectly complemented our existing furniture and accessories. We believe our customers can create a coordinated and sophisticated look by introducing either collection to their home.” Key to knowing what your customer wants is actually knowing who your customer is. La Residence Interiors knows exactly who its shoppers are, coming in the form of professional and educated females who are in their forties. they love entertaining at home and have a passion for luxury interiors and home styling.

What followed was visitors who saw their furniture asking where it was from, wanting to buy similar pieces themselves. From this, came the idea to create an exclusive collection of their very own furniture and décor – and La Residence Interiors was born. Dan and Sarah began their La Residence Interiors journey inspired by their love of France and their having a home there. Hence the name using the French language, and the distinct Gallic overtones used to style some of their pieces, such as the classic French-style Louis armchair. The only way was up for La Residence Interiors as it grew and expanded its collection , moving on to create timeless, elegant, classic furniture that harmonises with a wide range of interiors, from French farmhouse to Huf Haus. Sarah comments, “Our company has been fortunate to experience significant growth and we continue to build incredible long-lasting relationships with our customers. We’ve come a long way from where we started.

However, La Residence Interiors does not let any of the challenges faze it as it unfalteringly delivers an extraordinary service to clients.

Out of the Woods’ Director of Sales and Marketing, Mark Moeller, says, “We use our core values in all aspects of our business. Whether we are working with clients or hiring employees, our core values are at the heart of decision-making process. These guide and ultimately drive our success, for if we to remove any one value, it is very difficult to achieve the others.” Transparency is greatly important to Out of the Woods. Mark says, “With any new project, our teams meet with the clients to thoroughly cover our process. Within that initial meeting, we go step by step in the measure, selection, design, manufacturing and install process. We strive to provide as much clarity to the process so that we can ensure that we are the right fit for the clients, and they are the right fit for us.” By communicating exactly what can and can’t be done, Out of the Woods takes dreams and transforms them into a reality but also lets the client know if their dream needs to be tweaked in order to truly work. It is this open dialogue that helps Out of the Woods to build long lasting relationships that can stand the test of time – much like its products. Managing expectations is just one way that Out of the Woods ensures a positive experience that doesn’t disappoint at any turn. “Many projects go through multiple changes and a project review is done that involves our designer, manufacturing and installation teams to make sure we are looking at all aspects of the project from start to finish, before we sign off with the client,” Mark shares. The relationship between Out of the Woods and its clients is constructed on a foundation of trust, honesty, and respect, so that each project can be carried out with the clients’ best interests at heart. By getting to know their clients, the team understands their pain points and wishes – making Out of the Woods the best option “Where Nature and Style Meet.” With a team of 60 dedicated employees, Out of the Woods Custom Cabinets & Countertops can handle a high volume of projects on a yearly basis. It is committed to its craft as each, and every, member of staff is skilled, passionate, and enthusiastic about what they do day to day. Beginning in a small shop outside Owner Tige Rhoades’ home in April 2001, Out of the Woods has humble roots.

Mark adds, “Our core values certainly set us apart from our competitors. We do all our manufacturing on site, while it is not uncommon for other shops to buy cabinet boxes from a wholesaler and only make doors or drawers. Out of the woods starts with raw lumber or stone and creates the finished product all under our own roof. Also, though we want to continue to grow, Out of the Woods wants to make sure that we approach each client as a partnership, especially new home contractors.” Its sturdy approach means that it doesn’t cut corners or try to reach so many clients that it loses its advantages. The entire team is on board with the Out of the Woods outlook on business and client relationships – which is exactly how it provides such a brilliant, seamless, and award-winning service. Mark comments on the booming industry as we see Out of the Woods continue to grow. He says, “While some of the recent changes in the economy have caused new home construction to slow, we have seen the transition to remodel work increase significantly. Our market has seen explosive growth and it is likely to continue.” For the last few years, Out of the Woods has been extremely busy – with a workload that both challenges and inspires the team. Of course, they take on no more than they can handle, so as to ensure the upkeep of the spotless quality, but the great advantage of having such a team is that the business can increase its capacity for projects. At this current time, Mark tells us, “We are focusing efforts on more commercial projects than we normally would. We have also seen the labour pool become more challenging in all of the construction trades, which has affected us as well.” It is this kind of challenge that helps Out of the Woods to thrive as it stays sharp, smart, and sensational. The future is looking particularly exciting for Out of the Woods as it continues to take on high-end projects that are always finished in a flawless manner. Keeping in line with all industry trends, such as “the constant increase of the Federal Rate” and “a noticeable trend towards larger scale in the size of projects,” Out of the Woods is staying on top of its game. Mark adds, “There are focused plans for revenue growth through improving our systems, equipment, facilities, and additional breadth of product offerings. We just recently purchased an additional building that will allow us to offer a Euro cabinet design that we currently do not offer. This will include a significant investment in new equipment, training, and manpower. These improvements will allow all of our clients a more diversified selection, as well as allowing Out of the Woods the ability to better serve more commercial clients. We also are currently working on a multi-family complex providing cabinets and countertops for nearly 80 units.” These developments are changing the business as it is known and allowing it to skyrocket. We’re sure to see it continue to burst with life as it takes on more clients and their projects with passion and pride. Out of the Woods Custom Cabinets & Countertops has now been awarded with the title of Best High-End Kitchen Cabinetry Firm 2023 – Utah. Mark tells us, “We are honoured to be selected for this award. This the 5th similar award we have received in the last 12 months.” Contact: Mark Moeller Company: Out of the Woods Custom Cabinets & Countertops Web Address: https://ootwc.com/

BUILD Home and Garden Awards 2023 16 returned to Maun to take over the company from Antonie Lamont. Under this new management, the company’s trading name changed to Lodge Builders Botswana, and so was the beginning of yet another expanding era which would reinstate it as the undisputed leader in the construction of lodges in the Delta. Due to the ever-increasing demands for quality and work output, Gideon Barnard, former director at Stefanutti Stocks in Botswana, was employed by LBB in 2014 on a consultant basis to reduce the pressure on top level management. In June 2016, Gideon took over the managing director role from Adriaan van der Merwe, a further step towards poising the company for yet another exciting era. Together with the appointment of Gideon, LBB created (and filled) a few other top and medium management posts to help the existing management team. Gideon tells us more about the team: “The company was the first to have a 100% Motswana workforce, trained inhouse, to carry out work that was previously done by expatriate contract workers. With numerous new generations of lodges springing up within the Delta, the company grew from strength to strength, delivering a highly professional product at a very cost-effective rate, and a the same time enriching the local community with skills and revenue.” Gideon continues, “Over time, we have built up tremendous experience in the art of lodge construction. We have been lucky enough to work with leading architects in the field, coupled with several safari companies, each coming together to bring their own style and interpretation of the Delta and all it has to offer.” Ultimately, the LBB team’s professional work ethic and end results have generated a wide base of returning clients. LBB is very proud to link its name to some of the most prestigious lodges in the Delta. Since its humble beginnings, LBB has grown in skill as well as workforce, but at its roots, its beliefs have remained untouched. LBB believes in a sustainable future, it believes in reuse where possible, and most importantly, it believes in letting nature speak for itself. Company: Lodge Builders Botswana Contact: Anja Barnard / Gideon Barnard Email: [email protected] / [email protected] Website: lodgebuildersbotswana.com t Lodge Building Botswana, it is believed that there is no better proof of a commitment to service than a project which demonstrates the integrity of the builder. What the team at LBB does is not unique, but what they believe in is unique: their commitment to honesty, timeliness, working within budget, genuine concern for the client, and ultimately, delivering projects to the highest standard. The services delivered by the LBB team are based on hands-on project management and service delivery, with their strength being in the ability to schedule concurrent short- and long-term construction activities, and then effectively manage contracts on time, within budget, and by never compromising on quality. LBB’s offering is flexible and efficient; with its mobile nature and sizeable workforce, the company is able to offer several options that its team can adjust in order to meet specific client needs and expectations. Essentially, they are able to carry out anything from demolitions, rebuilds or refurbishments of pre-existing structures to a complete turnkey design and build. Indeed, while LBB’s products and services are primarily aimed at the lodge industry, it is no stranger to home renovations and private construction projects, either. Where it all began It was back in 1993 that Ladybird Investment was established by director, Antonie Lamont. Based in Shakawe, it was a company focused on carpentry work for camps in the area such as Drotsky’s Cabins, Nxamaseri, and Shakawe fishing lodge. Then, it relocated to Maun in 1994 to launch a larger ‘lodge-oriented’ carpentry shop. As time went on, the demand for renovation grew, and the business gradually moved from being a small-scale workshop into full-scale construction. By 1996, the original carpentry shop had closed as Ladybird Investments accepted its first major contract to rebuild Savute Elephant Camp. This marked the birth of an entirely unique construction company. In the following years, the business became completely mobile, moving from site to site as needed and adapting to the specific challenges and requirements of a wild and untouched setting. The skills acquired through this form of construction allowed the company and its team to specialise in building in the Delta. Meanwhile, it was in 2005 that Adriaan van der Merwe, who was involved in the company from 1999 and a shareholder since 2002, Lodge building is a very specialised area of construction, and the team at Lodge Builders Botswana have all the experience, expertise, and commitment needed to deliver a quality project. Following the company’s double award win in the Home and Garden Awards 2023, we learn more about its extraordinary offering.

BUILD Home and Garden Awards 2023 18 means that every surface attracts and neutralises pathogens 24/7 for up to 90 days. Unlike competitors, the company treats the entire facility, including heating, ventilation, and air conditioning ductwork when accessible. This makes the shield particularly effective. Master Germ’s clients include schools like the Girls Leadership Academy of Arizona, James Madison and Valley Christian Schools, as well as the Arizona State Bar Association and Ancala Optical. Another client is LabXpress, who Master Germ and Odor Removal helped to keep safe at the beginning of the pandemic while their lab carried out Covid-19 tests for the state. Additionally, Master Germ and Odor Removal has serviced a major live-television network every quarter for over two years, helping their staff and talent remain healthy and provide sports entertainment while many people were in isolation due to the pandemic. The network’s facilities contain expensive broadcasting equipment including microphones, lighting, green screen studios, and mixing consoles, which have never been negatively affected by the germ shield. Master Germ and Odor Removal is proud to protect its community with its outstanding Germ Shield Service. It is committed to doing the right thing, building trusting relationships with its clients. Those who work with the company are confident in the quality and reliability of its services, meaning they are willing to recommend it to others. Clients of Master Germ and Odor Removal have left overwhelmingly positive feedback for the company, praising its customer service and efficiency. Owner of the business, Dave Robinson, has been described as “professional and dependable” and “wonderful to work with”, demonstrating that customers are not only satisfied with the quality of the product, but also the service provided by Dave himself. As a result of its outstanding Germ Shield Service, Master Germ and Odor Removal is the winner of Best Corporate Disinfection Service Provider, Arizona, in the Home and Garden Awards 2023. Committed to customer satisfaction, the company continues to protect its clients from harmful bacteria and pathogens with its effective products, helping them save time and money, and chemical exposure, by reducing the need to use traditional disinfectants. With such a unique and high-quality service, there is no doubt that the company will continue to succeed in the future. Contact: Dave Robinson Company: Master Germ and Odor Removal Web Address: www.MasterGermAndOdorRemoval.com isinfection and neutralizing germs requires the utmost professionalism. Master Germ and Odor Removal’s Germ Shield Service adds a protective barrier to all surfaces, from walls to windows, that attracts and neutralises pathogens like viruses and bacteria. Impressively, the shield works for up to 90 days in commercial environments and potentially even longer in residential environments. The antimicrobial germ shield dries very quickly once applied to surfaces, forming covalent bonds. The shield forms a lattice of molecular pins that attract and pierce pathogens, a process called lysis. Since it uses physics rather than poison, germs do not become resistant to the germ shield, meaning it will do the same effective job time and time again without creating so-called superbugs. Importantly, the shield is food safe, with a toxicity rating of just under vitamin C, and is effective against SARs, E. Coli, influenza, MRSA, TB, and more viruses, bacteria, fungi and allergens. ATP is an energy molecule found in all living things, so its presence is commonly tested for to identify the presence of microorganisms like bacteria. To test the effectiveness of the germ shield, Master Germ and Odor Removal compared the ATP levels in two elevators. One was treated by Master Germ’s germ shield one time, and the other was disinfected using traditional cleaning methods five times a day. The results were shocking - the ATP levels in the germ shield elevator averaged at below 30 over a 90 day trial, which is considered food safe. However, the average level in the other elevator was well above 500, which is considered very dirty, even after being disinfected 5x per day for 90 days. This shows that Master Germ’s Germ Shield Service outperforms traditional disinfectants, meaning people can save massive amounts of time and money by treating environments with the non-toxic germ shield instead of purchasing and using traditional disinfectants to clean the area. The data from this elevator test can be found online at www. MasterGermAndOdorRemoval.com/elevator. The company’s Germ Shield Service is incredibly efficient, with rooms only needing to be empty for three minutes to apply the shield. This allows facilities to continue functioning during the service. For example, when applying the germ shield in a residential care facility for seniors, the shield can be applied in the residents’ rooms while they are in the dining area, then the rest of the facility can be treated when the residents return to their rooms. What makes Master Germ and Odor Removal’s Germ Shield Service so unique is the fact that it is applied to every surface, including windows and floors, rather than only surfaces that are frequently touched like light switches and door handles. This Operating in Arizona and North Carolina, Master Germ and Odor Removal offers comprehensive services to fight odors and neutralize bacteria. With extensive experience in the industry, the company brings unparalleled knowledge and expertise to every job it works on. Master Germ and Odor Removal uses non-toxic, noncarcinogenic, no mess, non-staining, EPA-approved products and products manufactured to EPA standards to provide clients with an effective anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, hypoallergenic, and spore-neutralizing shield.
