Vision sponsors BDA Brick Awards

Brick Awards

Vision was proud to sponsor and attend last year’s BDA Brick Awards in aid of CRASH, the event was held on 14th November 2013 at Grosvenor square, London. The annual Brick Awards is one of the longest established and most widely respected design awards in the UK. The Awards recognise excellence in design and construction using brick. Each year hundreds of entries are submitted and 16 prestigious trophies and more than 100 certificates are issued to the successful projects. The architect/designer, brick manufacturer and specialist brickwork contractor are all acknowledged on each project.

Vision was the proud sponsor of the casino where all proceeds from the evening go to CRASH which is a practical charity addressing the issues of homelessness by harnessing the skills, products and goodwill of the construction and property industry to improve hostels, day centres, night shelters, training centres and move-on accommodation, for frontline homelessness agencies who work directly with homeless people.

New and exclusive fixing system

Vision has recently introduced a new and exclusive fixing system that will revolutionise the way restraints are fixed to steel. The system uses an exclusive method of fixing restraints that does not involve "shot" firing. As a result we can now offer a single price rate for fixing frame cramps to any steel, whatever the thickness.

You benefit from a more cost effective solution for your project requirement. You can manage the costs better knowing that the thickness of your steel won't have any effect on your costs for fixing.

Vision becomes ACS approved installers

Vision Construction has been the first and only company to be awarded "Approved Installers" status from ACS. Vision has undergone rigorous training and assessment to be awarded the certification, which is a testament to the hard work and commitment they show to high quality standards.
