Offsite Solutions is said to be the UK’s longest established manufacturer of bathroom pods for a diverse range of building sectors, including residential apartments for rent and market sale, healthcare, student accommodation, social housing, care homes and hotels. Richard Tonkinson, executive director of Offsite Solutions, said: “We are delighted to be recognised by such a respected institution as the London Stock Exchange Group. This is the second year that Offsite Solutions has been identified as an ‘inspirational business’ and we are one of only 26 UK manufacturers to be listed. Our inclusion in the European report is further evidence of our market-leading position and the tremendous commitment and hard work of all our staff.” Earlier this year, the company announced a record order intake in the history of the business. This performance is a 50% increase on the same period last year, and has secured projects for the business from 2017 through to 2019. www.offsitesolutions.com Stocking up well West Yorkshire carpet manufacturer, Heckmondwike FB, was said to be delighted when Christian Carpets, based in Leeds, chose Array in marble from its Creative range, for the refurbishment of its 80m2 showroom. Heckmondwike FB’s Array carpet tiles and planks feature a mid-width rib design and a charcoal background in order to enhance its ‘subtle’ linear pattern. The range features 12 colour options. Simon Christian, director at Christian Carpets, said: “We like the subtle, but stylish design of Array and this monochrome shade is very much on trend. We display beds as well as carpet and we also wanted something that would complement our product range, without detracting from it. “Another major benefit of Heckmondwike’s fibre bonded carpet is that it is really hardwearing. As we get a lot of traffic through our showroom, we want it to keep its ‘good as new’ look for as long as possible.” John Barraclough, area sales manager for Heckmondwike FB, said: “It’s the ultimate compliment if a flooring showroom chooses your product for its own premises!” www.heckmondwike-fb.co.uk Committing to BIM with launch of free objects Demonstrating its commitment to the advancement of Building Information Modelling (BIM), Kingspan Industrial Insulation has launched free BIM objects for the Kingspan KoolDuct System, Kingspan Kooltherm FM Duct Insulation and Kingspan Therma Duct Insulation – available for download from Bimstore..
