19 June 2018

The property care industries elite gathered for the biggest event of the year, now in their eleventh year, the PCA Best Practice Awards recognises and rewards its members.

With a groundbreaking amount of entries and stiff competition, Timberwise scooped “Website of the Year (Medium/Large Company)”, the judging body recognised the Timberwise website for its smart visual design, clear branding and providing the user with a vast amount of up to date and relevant knowledge in an easy to navigate format.

South West Surveyor, Simon Lockyer took home “The Graham Coleman Award for Timber & Damp Exams”, awarded to individuals who achieved the highest marks in examinations sat during 2017.

  Last year was a difficult year, stuck in an unsatisfying job role where I wasn’t actually enjoying my work, I took a chance and left to join Timberwise. Now 16 months on I’m celebrating the proudest moment of my career to date, all the training and hard work have paid off. What I like about Timberwise is everyone is treated professionally and given freedom to develop as a Surveyor and everyone wants you to achieve. Sometimes in life, you have to take a chance and I thank all those involved for taking a chance with me.
