KBI UK has been announced as the 2016 Best Eco-Friendly Paving Solutions Provider for the North of England at the Homebuilder Awards.

Operated by Build Magazine, the award recognises the use of KBI’s unique Flexistone material. Branded as Permadrive for the domestic marketplace, the material gives property owners the ability to have a beautifully presented driveway with the benefit of it being completely porous. Many of the clients that KBI served during 2016 were subject to tight planning regulations that required them to explore permeable paving.

KBI UK Managing Director Graham Pell said: “This award is excellent recognition for the hard work we’ve put in over the last few years, and also to for the quality of the product we provide. In order to maintain quality, we’ve deliberately kept a very tight rein on the expansion of our product into the domestic sector. As a result, our standards are consistently high, which is leading us to do more and more work on high-end properties that require only the very best solutions.”

Katherine Benton, Awards Coordinator, expressed her pride in her winners: “Our homes are central to our lives, and as such it has been a genuine pleasure to be able to showcase the hard work and dedication every one of our award winners puts into every project. I would like to congratulate them on their success and wish them the best of luck for the future.”
