Window and door fabricator Frame Fast UK was presented with a Seal of Excellence award from developers Wheeldon Brothers Ltdwhilst working on their development The Dial, an exciting new build development in Spondon, Derby.  

The Dial won a coveted Seal of Excellence Award in the National House Building Council’s (NHBC) Pride in the Job 2020 awards.

Debbie Smith, Sales and Marketing Director at Wheeldon Brothers, says: “As a member of the NHBC, we were so pleased to win in the Pride of Excellence Awards, and we felt it was important to recognise those who took part in the project.

Whenever we call, they are always very helpful, offering professional and timely advice. At Wheeldon, we’re family focused and have a close-knit team, and we like that this is reflected in Frame Fast.
