A WINCHESTER roofing and building company has been awarded Specialist of the Decade at an awards ceremony.

Lakesmere, which last month (March) celebrated 21 years in business, was recognised to mark the tenth anniversary of the 2014 Specialists Awards, organised by trade magazine Construction News.

Lakesmere managing director, Mark Davey, said: “It is an unbelievable honour to be named as Construction News’ Specialist of the Decade and we are delighted to be a part of the celebrations of what is undoubtedly the most important award scheme for the specialist contractor sector.

“The last decade has certainly been a challenge for Lakesmere but also a period of exciting growth and opportunity. I’d like to express my thanks to Construction News for recognising us in this way and to our clients, supply chain partners and loyal staff for making this happen.”
