RGB Building Supplies | sponsor of Excellence in Construction Award 2020 | Business Action Awards 2020 | North Devon's independent business awards

Sponsored by RGB Building Supplies, the Business Action ‘Excellence in Construction Award’ aims to recognise excellence throughout the North Devon building and construction sector. It highlights exceptional standards of built environments, which provide high quality of life for work, home, and play.

From an individual hand-crafted wooden staircase to a complete housing development, the Excellence in Construction Award highlights the best of North Devon construction.

2020 has been a challenging year for the construction sector and this year the Excellence in Construction Award also recognises those businesses who have adapted to the challenges created by Covid restrictions to continue operations.

RGB Building Supplies

We are one of the leading independent builders merchants in the South West operating out of 20 locations across Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. At our branches you’ll find a wide array of high quality products in stock, including landscaping, plumbing and heating, heavyside and lightside, decorating, and general building materials, as well as dedicated kitchen, bathroom and bedroom showrooms in many locations.

Our branch teams are highly knowledgeable and are on hand to offer necessary technical assistance, recommend products from our extensive stock, and assist with any projects you’re undertaking. Whether it’s our knowledgeable and reliable staff, or our great range of products, we aim to go that extra mile whether you’re building, maintaining, renovating or repairing.

We have been independent since 1850, and feel that our family roots and community focus are at the heart of what we do. We understand that customers’ needs are constantly changing, so we work hard to evolve with the times, to make sure dealing with us is as easy as possible, including launching an e-commerce website last autumn.

Our local branches deliver to local communities, providing quality products from our trusted suppliers, while overcoming any logistical challenges that sites may face. For these reasons, our customers always trust us to deliver, when and how we say we will.

We are open to all, welcoming both the trade and public, no matter how big or small the project. We’re proud to have been building our local communities for the past 170 years, and look forward to serving you in one of our branches throughout Devon, Cornwall and Somerset soon.

We’re delighted to be involved in recognising a local hero in the construction industry; a sector very relevant to our business.
