Industry award for McLaren Production Centre Partner
It’s only six months since the McLaren Production Centre (MPC) was officially opened by the UK Prime Minister David Cameron, but the standards of excellence set by this remarkable building are already receiving official recognition.
At The Tile Association awards ceremony held at the Birmingham Metropole on April 21, the work of our partner Avantgarde Tiling received two major awards. The Tile Association is the body representing the UK’s entire wall and floor tiling industry and its customers, and its annual awards are the most prestigious prizes the industry can bestow.
The McLaren Production Centre earned the Best use of tile in the Private Sector award, which is a testament to Avantgarde’s high-quality approach; if laid end-to-end, the quantity of Pastorelli tiles required in the MPC would stretch from our base in Woking all the way to our showroom at One Hyde Park in central London.
Avantgarde Tiling’s work on the MPC and other projects also earned the Excellence in Tile Contracting award, which recognises consistently high technical standards and customer service.
Barbara Zanasi, Managing Director of Avantgarde Tiling said: “Avantgarde shares McLaren’s belief that attention to detail is vital to delivering a high quality product – that the standard of the raw materials has to be matched by the quality of the execution. Having been recognised with these important TTA awards, Avantgarde Tiling has brought further the fulfilment of the common desire for innovation and excellence that we share with McLaren. We are very proud of this achievement, that we hope will only be one of many more to come. Avantgarde is synonymous with ‘quality through passion.’”
Lesley Day, Executive Officer of The Tile Association said: “Winning a TTA Award is a statement of excellence unparalleled in the wall and floor tiling industry. In being recognised by The Tile Association for Excellence in Tile Contracting, and Best use of tile in the Private Sector, Avantgarde Tiling have shown their outstanding commitment to quality and attention to detail. Members of The Tile Association are carefully checked for financial, technical and service standards, as such TTA members are the best in the tiling industry, and having been recognised with these awards Avantgarde can proudly count themselves amongst the best of the best.”
