BUILD Campaign Name 2023 About the Home Builder Awards 2024 BUILD Magazine’s beloved staple is back to honour the champions of the residential construction industry both longstanding and as yet unsung. The Home Builder Awards 2024 is a highly inclusive awards programme featuring the industry’s true winners who provide us with a place to call home! The construction industry is rife with innovation and is continually evolving to become more streamlined, efficient and safe. New inventions such as 3D modular construction printers allow for sturdier structures up to three storeys tall to be produced offsite, effectively tacking the skilled labour shortage issue. Sophisticated Internet of Things (IoT) technology, data analytics and Building Information Modelling (BIM) all allow construction sites to be planned comprehensively and monitored in real-time, reducing the possibility of unforeseen dangers and risks. With full control and an all-seeing-eye, construction companies can realise their true potential. The possibilities are almost limitless, and now that supply chains are free from hyperinflation there are few obstacles than cannot be overcome. As ever, the entrepreneurial spirit and ingenuity of the construction industry refuses to fade.

I have worked with the highly rated architects across the country and Ron and his team clearly are the best and brightest. Most impressive are the interactions at the beginning where Ron learns what you want in your home…not what he thinks you should have. He was amazing at being able to understand who we were, how we wanted to live, and the feelings we wanted to have when inside or outside of our home. He expertly and efficiently translated that understanding into a perfect design. He always met deadlines and the quality of his work is unmatched. When the inevitable large scale custom home problems arose, he promptly and wisely knew how to solve them.

BUILD Home Builder Awards 2024 Driven by a mission to provide customers with the trifecta of a perfect roof, exemplary workmanship, and total customer satisfaction, Trademark Roofing is renowned in its local area for the all-encompassing approach it takes to operations. This all begins with the team striving to wholly understand a customer’s roofing needs and manage their expectations, with meticulous attention to detail being afforded to every project, complemented with excellent communication and a professional manner that is on display at all times. Tristan tells us, “our reputation is based on service, safety, and quality, regardless of how large or small the job.” A licensed company that is immensely proud to be a member of an array of professional and trade associations in the area, inclusive of the Cape Coral Building Industry Association, Charlotte and Desoto County Building Industry Association, and the Associated Building Contractors Association, Trademark is entering its ninth year of operation, with Tristan also celebrating having been in charge for three years in the summer of 2024. Aside from his CEO duties, Tristan also sits on a couple Roofing Contractor of the Year 2024 – Florida & Most Dedicated Roofing Business CEO 2024 (Florida): Tristan Starbird As Southwest Florida’s local roofing professionals, CEO Tristan Starbird and the team at Trademark Roofing offer their expert services to Cape Coral, Sanibel, and the surrounding areas, leveraging more than three decades of experience and an A+ rating from the BBB (Better Business Bureau) to carry out excellent roofing services that have garnered the company hundreds of five-star reviews from customers. Great pride is taken across every element of the company’s service and is on display in abundance, whether this be through the team gladly sharing their expertise with others or the faultless customer service that is provided every day. We catch up with CEO and awardee Tristan, who tells us more about his business and dedication to the sector. of industry boards, the Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Association and Cape Coral Construction Industry Association, respectively. Regardless of who has been at the helm across the company’s operation for almost a decade, the overarching mission of the business has remained the same since day one, to make a positive difference in Florida’s building and contracting space. Whether a customer needs a new roof on their dream home, is reroofing their second home, or taking advantage of the company’s commercial roofing service, the commitment to this ethos is clear across the board. As Tristan explains, “this philosophy has propelled explosive growth and enabled Trademark Roofing to give back to the community.” From tile roofing, to metal, asphalt, and solar roofing solutions, services offered by Trademark are plentiful, but one key project that Tristan tells us about saw the company contracted for a Tilcor brand stone-coated steel reroofing job, a complex project that necessitated the tearing off and disposing of existing tiles and standing seam, replacing them with

9 some of the finest stone-coated steel that the market has to offer, boasting a 50-year warranty. At 90 squares and inclusive of an air-conditioned bank consisting of five external units two stories in the air, this was no easy undertaking, but two weeks later when the work was finished, the client was overjoyed with the state of the completed project. This is just one example of the fantastic work carried out by the team every single day, and five simple steps are at the heart of ensuring that a high level of consistency is present when it comes to taking on new customers and completing projects to the best of their ability. Kicking off this process is the scheduling of an inspection, whereby the team will visit a property, understand exactly what it is that a client seeks to get out of using the company’s services, before assessing the current state of the roof. The second stage involves reviewing the project with a representative, before stage three sees the crew set about working out the best solution in collaboration with a client, and only then is the dotted line signed. Step number four is undoubtedly the best, with a client provided the opportunity to watch this team of professionals at work, and witness as the project transforms their home for the better, with a new roof that is sure to turn the heads of everybody that walks by, as well as a client’s neighbours. In fact, one of the primary ways that Trademark secures its customers is through them seeing the quality of the work firsthand, and upon realising how good their neighbour’s new roof looks, they make the decision to invest in their own, providing their home with a new lease on life. Tangent aside, the fifth and final step, writing a testimonial, is entirely optional, but customers are often so impressed that they happily share the experience. Referencing this method, Tristan tells us, “we provide a simple approach to a complicated problem. You can count on Trademark Roofing to be there every step of the way.” A holistic approach such as this has proven necessary in Tristan and the team establishing a firm hold in such a competitive industry, and as CEO, it is Tristan’s responsibility to manage the company’s tactics when it comes to standing out. This is a particular forte for Tristan, who focuses on all things company image, marketing, and business development. Providing a baseball analogy, he explains, “I enjoy being able to play all the positions on the field […] BUT, delivering when it counts is my speciality!” As for the specific methods he has adopted in order to achieve this, Tristan tells us, “when we are working with a customer, we [make a] list to establish the wants versus the needs. Based on the conversation we try to provide multiple solutions that fit within the established parameters.” He continues, “this approach puts the customer in control and allows us to be a guide. At the end of the day, we want to be the roofer of choice because of our expert craftsmanship and exceptional customer service, from first communication through final inspection.” Expanding further, he elaborates, “our technical knowledge, backed by our craftsmanship, furthers our customer’s confidence and gives them peace of mind.” Tristan is also well aware of the importance of consistency and seamlessness across the company’s services, and to this end, he personally takes responsibility for ensuring that a customer is kept in touch with a single point of contact across the entire project, with this cutting out all of the necessary re-explaining that has to be done when dealing with multiple people. Further bolstering this, a series of automated processes are in place whereby a customer is updated regularly every step of the way about progress, keeping them in the loop and further underpinning this emphasis on a seamless procedure. Working in the area that it does, the company is afforded a wealth of opportunities for the future, with these primarily revolving around Cape Coral’s status as one of the United States’ fastest-growing communities. Growth brings with it new people and new houses, and with new houses come new roofs. Looking ahead to the coming years, Tristan hopes to see more major project renovations, which challenge the team and keep them coming up with fresh and innovative solutions that serve to continually cement the company’s position at the forefront of this sector. Continued growth is expected, and numerous projects are in the pipeline, and while these cannot be disclosed just yet, the future sure looks bright. Ultimately, people select Trademark Roofing due to the five-star experiences that customers are provided with time and again, with a level of service to match that ensures all needs are taken care of and that a customer very much feels part of the project. Those in the community can enjoy the services of this hyperlocal company, with this too coming with its benefits, such as close proximity and a deep understanding of the architecture in the region. This local commitment is on display outside of the company’s services too, with it recently having sponsored the local theatre, helped to build a nearby church, and it constantly supports families in the area with special needs children. Such selfless acts, exemplary leadership, and fantastic roofing solutions have combined to result in Trademark Roofing and Tristan Starbird winning this duo of awards, and we congratulate them both on their prowess, not only in Florida, but also in the wider industry. In closing, CEO Tristan Starbird highlights the company’s distinction aptly, stating, “Trademark Roofing is much more than a roofing company, we are your neighbour who cares.” Contact: Tristan Starbird Company: Trademark Roofing Web Address: www.trademarkroofingllc.com

Each project is approached with an avid dedication that truly shines through the completed product, with its impeccable craftsmanship showcased in all aspects of every reinvented space. Though each property brings its own share of challenges, OMNI Property Solutions doesn’t view these as roadblocks, but instead opportunities to convey its knack for formulating clever, yet creative, approaches.

However, despite its team possessing boundless levels of creativity and passion, OMNI Property Solutions is committed to carefully following the guidance of its clients. It views the process as a collaborative one – from start to finish, and beyond – and therefore discusses every decision made with its customers in order to truly capture their individual essence.

BUILD Home Builder Awards 2024 Most Trusted Property Snagging Surveyor 2024 – UK Established for 8 years, HomeSnag is a building snagging company with a reputation for a thorough but fair process. It raises any issues that do not abide by the building regulations or NHBC. Its main service is carrying out surveys for homeowners. This includes the new PCI (Pre-Completion Inspection) as part of the NHQB (New Homes Quality Board) instruction. HomeSnag also carries out work for several large developers such as David Wilson Homes and others. Working in various regions across the country, properties are inspected prior to the customer moving in. HomeSnag has a mission to hold developers accountable for poor workmanship, but also to praise where appropriate for good quality homes. Its core value is to provide customers with a great level of customer service. It puts its company’s success down to a group effort from both its admin team and its surveyors. HomeSnag has recently faced an important company evolution. It has been building a new system and concurrently bringing its staff up to speed with training. This is all to do with the previously mentioned PCI (Pre-Completion Inspection). This was a change that came into play in the Autumn of 2022, when the government implemented Ombudsman scheme NHQB (New Homes Quality Board) was released. What this means is that companies like HomeSnag are now allowed to survey new build developments pre-completion. Historically, this was not a requirement, and many developers would deny access in favour of carrying out surveys only once homeowners had moved in. To implement the new changes, NHQB released guidelines and a new template to follow. A recent challenge HomeSnag had was to implement a software solution that encompassed the new rules. It also had to ensure all staff were trained on the software and new processes. Additionally, it needed to make sure all staff had the credentials necessary to carry out the PreCompletion inspections –as it was a requirement to be members of RICS or the RPSA. Several different companies were approached and trialled to find a suitable app that would fit the bill. Problems occurred such as data being lost, not having a signal on site, or simply extortionate costs. This made it clear to HomeSnag that it would have to build its own app. This took several months of non-stop work refining and testing, but ultimately it resulted in a stable and user-friendly app that was also much more economical. Happily, this meant savings could be passed on to customers. It also meant HomeSnag was the first company on the market to be able to offer PCIs. HomeSnag is often able to provide homeowners with knowledge of issues, or reassurance of good quality in their new home. However, it is a very competitive industry. Particularly during the Covid-19 pandemic, many site managers and/or tradespeople have turned their hands to snagging houses themselves. However, while it is one thing to be good at snagging a house as a sole trader, it is quite another to be able to run a profitable business on a larger scale and maintain the quality for customers. Where HomeSnag stands apart is in ensuring it projects trustworthiness to our customers. It HomeSnag is an award-winning building snagging company whose hardworking surveyors and admin teams are experienced in providing and advising customers on the best course of action regarding their homes. Fully qualified staff make the home move journey as easy as possible for both customers and property developers. is also populated by qualified surveyors that are members of the likes of RICS, RPSA and CIOB. As a company they are part of The Property Ombudsman Service and have featured on BBC and ITV news items. The company also excels in providing customers with a high level of service from the point of booking and onwards. It can offer technical solutions ranging from heat loss surveys to borescope checks on cavity walls. Concentrating on the main issues, beyond cosmetics, makes the surveys fair on developers. It also does not give unrealistic expectations to the customer. On a day-to-day basis, customers tend to be more concerned about important aspects that may impede them in the long run. They want to know if their house is properly insulated so they don’t pay more for heating, or they want reassurance there are not breaches in building regulations or NHBC tolerances that'll cause issues down the line. This is where HomeSnag, the award winning Most Trusted Snagging Survey Company 2024, shines. It has staff who will go above and beyond to service its customers, and we are sure to see it continue helping its customers for many years to come.

BUILD Home Builder Awards 2024 Berry Bespoke Design & Build Limited is a small building contractor that excels across many facets of the building industry but possesses a particular speciality in the realm of bespoke, oneoff builds. Usually, such builds are carried out on the higher end of the property spectrum, with each requiring a keen eye for detail and an unbridled dedication to produce a finished product that exceeds the needs and expectations of its clients, who more often than not, are seeking perfection. An adherence to high standards thus dictates the company’s approach to business, with such standards abundant across every element of its offerings. Director Sam Wheeler tells us more. Best Bespoke Home Renovation & Building Company 2024 - East Midlands From digging footings to fitting kitchens, Berry Bespoke Design & Build Limited does it all, and with a commitment to having at least one member of its core staff on a site every day, its approach to open communication and putting the customer first is apparent. Covering the areas of Market Harborough, Lutterworth, Kettering, and the surrounding areas, the company’s impressive repertoire spans new builds, barn conversions, house extensions, renovations, and more. An encompassing service is provided that spans concept and design through to building and completion, transforming a house into a home and a space into a functional area. Sam Wheeler heads up this operation, doing so atop of all the relevant qualifications, having completed his NVQs in both carpentry and joinery. Across the board, the entire team are also fully trained and experienced, with each member possessing their own specialities that invariably contribute towards the overall success of the collective. A vetted member of the Federation of Master Builders, the company is also proud to display the government endorsed TrustMark rating, with this serving to represent a constant adherence to upholding exemplary principles and following a strict code of conduct at all times. With Berry Bespoke Design & Build Limited able to carry out such a wide range of projects, its portfolio is plentiful, but one key project that Sam tells us about involves the recent completion of a new build farmhouse in Hallaton, with this project demonstrating the company’s refusal to compromise and its willingness to evolve a project as it comes together. Sam explains, “the challenge was accommodating all of the changes along the way and trying to keep to schedule. One aspect that was a massive challenge, but we managed to get to work, was utilising the massive loft space and managing to access it via the main staircase rather than the loft hatch planned.” Since sizeable projects such as this cost a lot of money, Sam prioritises competitive quoting, but when given the chance, he relishes sitting down with a customer to be as transparent as possible regarding the specifics. Such an honest and open approach always goes down well with customers and represents the start of a great relationship that spans the entire project, and often leads to repeat work. As Sam tells us, “whether good or bad, customers just want to be kept in the loop”, and by ensuring that they are well-informed through effective communication, the business ensures a seamless project experience every time. Aside from its building of bespoke houses from scratch, Sam emphasises the wealth of knowledge and experience that the team have with other projects. From extensions to joinery, landscaping, and bathrooms, not every project undertaken by the team is a new build, and alongside one of their current new build undertakings, the extension of a local brewery is underway. With Sam and the crew creating a bar at the bottom of this brewing company, they are showcasing their talents in the field of industrial and steel frame buildings. Remaining adaptable is the key to succeeding in this market, particularly in the current landscape where raw materials are seeing constant price rises and it is becoming increasingly difficult to find skilled labourers who genuinely care about the quality of completed work. In an attempt to manage the impacts of such shifts, Sam tells us, “we aim to continue working for other clients in building their dream homes and extensions but are also in the process of building our own small developments to sell.” Those living in the region and in need of a reliable, knowledgeable, and skilled workforce for their building contracting requirements should look no further than Berry Bespoke Design & Build Limited, a company guaranteed to provide an excellent service in a friendly and straightforward manner.
