North Devon commercial furniture manufacturer wins nationals awards

TCi | Business Action | North Devon business news

Bideford-based TCi (GB) Ltd has won two awards at the Considerate Constructors Scheme National Company and Supplier Awards: a Gold award and the trophy for Most Considerate Supplier – an accolade more often won by large corporations. The gold award recognises the commitment TCi has shown to the Code of Considerate Practice at the highest level, following an in-depth assessment of site activities and administration.

Managing director Adrian Sealey said: “Having won Bronze in 2016, we were absolutely thrilled to have been shortlisted once again, with the hope of improving, but to win Gold AND scoop the top trophy for Most Considerate Supplier is beyond amazing for us. It’s like our industry’s equivalent to the BAFTAs.

“Thanks to all our customers who have given us the opportunity to operate at such a high level. We’re really proud of our delivery and installation teams and everyone who makes TCi the go-to supplier for office and welfare furniture within construction. We’re looking forward to maintaining this gold standard of service throughout 2018 and beyond!”

In particular, the judges praised TCi for its innovative collaboration with a local manufacturer to produce a cardboard workstation solution. ECO360 cardboard desks are 100% recyclable and sustainable, making them ideally suited to construction site accommodation. TCi was also recognised for placing priority on community and charity work, alongside a strong apprenticeship and work experience programme.

The Considerate Constructors Scheme

The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a non-profit-making, independent organisation founded in 1997 by the construction industry to improve its image. Construction sites, companies and suppliers voluntarily register with the scheme and agree to abide by the Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage best practice beyond statutory requirements. The scheme is concerned about any area of construction activity that may have a direct or indirect impact on the image of the industry as a whole. The main areas of concern fall into three categories: the general public, the workforce and the environment.

TCi (GB) Ltd

TCi (GB) Ltd was established in 2006 as a commercial furniture supplier, expanding into a specialist refurbishment and fit-out contractor over the years. Today, TCi operates under three brands: TCi furniture WORKS, TCi construction WORKS and ECO360. TCi furniture WORKS provides commercial office and welfare furniture design, delivery and installation to businesses and construction sites throughout the UK. TCi construction WORKS specialises in the construction and refurbishment of clean room and GMP environments for pharmaceutical, catering, nuclear and medical manufacturing industries throughout the South West. ECOdesk360 is a 100% sustainable workstation solution. Made from 100% recyclable cardboard and finished with a hard-wearing, recyclable acrylic top, ECO360 represents a truly sustainable solution for the workplace of the future.
