Oak View Landscapes scoops a Principal Award at the BALI National Landscapes Awards 2015 in London for a joint BALI Contractor/Designer collaboration to extensively redesign and build a large garden for a beautiful Grade 11 listed 17th century farmhouse near Saffron Walden, Essex.
Business development manager Jakki Jenner commented: “Oak View Landscapes are extremely delighted to have received the Principal Award jointly with DeakinLock Garden Design, in the relatively new and very worthy category of BALI Register Contractor and Registered Designers Joint Submission (sponsored by Easigrass). As a landscape contractor we immensely value the relationships and strategic partnerships we have with our BALI registered garden designers and this award shows how key a close joint working relationship is between designer and contractor in delivering exceptional award winning schemes for our clients.”
Oak View were also winners in the prestigious Employer of the Year category making them 7 times BALI National Award winners.
Paul Downer, managing director, said: “Oak View Landscapes is growing as a business within a sector where there is an acute skills shortage and it has become even more important to invest in, retain and develop all staff for the future. We believe our staff are our greatest asset and we reward and recognise them wherever possible as without our staff and their dedication and loyalty we would not be one of the most respected landscape contractors in this region.
Oak View’s recent growth strategy has paid great dividends and the Company has grown over 50% in the last 2 years. Having out grown their current office facilities in West Bergholt, Colchester, it will shortly be moving to a newly constructed headquarters and operating centre on a commercial site owned by an associated company also in West Bergholt.
