Korniche given the Professional Builder Annual Charles Godfrey Award for Innovation.

Professional Builder Awarded to the MFT Team

Professional Builder LogoThe Charles Godfrey Memorial Award for Innovation is given every year to a product that has brought significant innovation to the building industry.

 


The Korniche Aluminium Roof Lantern has been awarded this prestigious award for 2018.

Roger Bisby who tested the Korniche earlier in the year commented: “The first thing I saw was the packaging. Every builder knows the frustration of having items arrive on site with damage. It slows the job down and causes hassle for the manufacturer – and the customer. Often there is a knock-on effect because other trades are unable to get on. With the Korniche Roof Lantern, everything arrived in perfect condition. The next thing is the instruction booklet, which deserves an award on its own. A huge amount of thought and design has gone into this. Every stage is clearly shown with intelligent use of colours to show you the relevant components.

Then there is the engineering. It all fits perfectly, and, when I say fits, I mean no gaps or misalignment, and no need for packers, shims or sealant.

The whole installation process went like a dream and I said at the time that I couldn’t wait until I had the chance to fit another. It didn’t take long. Without the slightest rush, I fitted three on a roof in less than a morning and each one was perfect. More importantly, the customer was delighted”.

Made For Trade are delighted to have received this award, one that stands by the very values on which the Korniche was conceived – to deliver to builders and installers a product that makes life on site easier and more cost-effective, whilst providing a beautiful, architectural lantern look that is contemporary whilst holding on to traditional timber style fitting any home. FITTED IN MINUTES, GLAZED IN SECONDS, STRONGER than any other lantern on the market with WARMER construction and SLIMMER profiles.

Bradley Gaunt, Managing Director says “We have been entered for many fenestration awards over the last couple of years and from my point of view in this industry we often see these awards as the usual suspects congratulating one another on their endeavours, in many cases winning could easily be based on the strength of a PR budget?!. So I’m over the moon with this independent award and Roger’s comments as it puts the product, engineering and design centre stage and applauds the advantages these efforts deliver above its competitors. In 2019 Made for Trade continue the innovation delivered in the Korniche Lantern with a new product launch at the FITShow which we are all very excited about”

There is no greater proof that a product like Korniche has made a mark on the industry than seeing competitors scrambling to catch up, looking to pick up on one or two aspects of the design to try and differentiate their own products and claw back market share. However, the Korniche Aluminium Lantern has already achieved an affinity with both trade and homeowners which will be hard to overturn. No other lantern has the overall winning combinations the Korniche delivers. From quotation to delivery in as little as five working days for a totally bespoke product and fitting in under 30 mins on site – Korniche remains the obvious solution for trades looking for a lantern to grace their flat roof extension projects in 2019.
