DB Sharp and Sons, entering an awards event for the first time, were finalists in the general builder of the year and refurbishment project of the year awards – and won both categories during the ceremony at the Letchworth Hall Hotel.

Firm director David Sharp said afterwards: “We are really pleased to have won both of these awards, which were completely unexpected.

“It really is a team effort at DB Sharp and Sons, and it’s great to see that the hard work of the whole team is being recognised.

“My father started this company some 38 years ago, and I’m sure he would be hugely proud to know we are now award-winning builders.”

The judges were highly impressed with the quality of the work carried out.

We have gone through significant growth over the past 18 months and its hugely rewarding to see that we have managed to do this while retaining what’s important to us – high quality workmanship and happy customers.

“With our expansion comes a new head office for the company and these two awards will look great being showcased in there.”
