ISS Restoration, incorporating the Rainbow International brand, scoop 2 awards at this year’s BDMA Awards
ISS Restoration and Rainbow International have reason to celebrate as they have been awarded 2 awards at the prestigious industry awards on Thursday 7th November.
Jennie Mills, Rainbow International franchise owner from Derby West was awarded the accolade of ‘Young Achiever of the Year’. This has been a well and truly momentous year for Jennie, with this being the 3rd award she has won. Earlier in the year at the ISS Restoration annual conference Jennie won ‘Franchisee of the Year’, at this awards evening one of Jennie’s long standing staff members also won our ‘Service with a Human Touch’ award. Jennie then went on to win the bfa ‘Young Female Franchisee of the Year’ award at the bfa’s annual conference, finally to top off a fantastic year Jennie was awarded the well deserved ‘Young Achiever of the Year’ award from the BDMA.
Jennie has grown her business far beyond any expectations set at the beginning of her journey with Rainbow International. Year on year she has overachieved on her set targets. Jennie has also left a huge impression within the industry already, being involved in a Trail Blazer group to create and develop an apprenticeship technician scheme, which will encourage more young individuals into becoming restoration technicians.
ISS Restoration’s Commercial, Complex & Major Loss team also had a reason to celebrate again, as they were awarded ‘Commercial Damage Management Project of the Year’ for a large scale Complex & Major Loss project that took place last year at a 16,000m2 aerospace facility in County Durham.
A team of 75+ ISS Restoration technicians were mobilised within 36 hours to begin the restoration works required to get the business back up and running again. Teams worked around the clock to ensure soot and smoke contamination in the vast facility were treated and cleaned as quickly as possible to minimise business interruption. Acting in the role of principal contractor ISS Restoration ensured the safety and compliance of all other contractors that were on-site to complete their work.
This is the 2nd year in a row ISS Restoration have won this fantastic award, and it is credit to the excellent team of people ISS Restoration have working for them. Service with a Human Touch is the ethos of this business – and this shines through when jobs of this scale arise. ISS Restoration always rise to the challenge and ensure the works are completed in the quickest most efficient way.
As with Jennie Mills, the ISS Restoration project team who were involved in this project also won an award at the ISS Restoration Conference this year, the whole team were welcomed up on stage to receive the Managing Directors Special Recognition award for the excellent work they did.
