KEVIN Wilson Joiners & Building Contractors has announced it has rebranded its business and moved to new premises.
The Stirling-based company is now known as Kevin Wilson Master Builders. The firm, founded by Kevin and Pam Wilson in September 2007, has taken over premises in the city’s Springkerse Industrial Estate. The company carries out all types of building work from residential renovations and extensions to commercial projects.
Kevin Wilson Master Builders is in the running for a top award from the Federation of Master Builders (FMB), having previously scooped the FMB’s Best Kitchen Project honour for Scotland earlier this year.
The business will now compete for the UK award at a virtual ceremony on September 24. Clients, staff, friends and contractors will meet at the HQ to watch the ceremony live.
Pam Wilson said, “We were over the moon to win Best Kitchen award from the FMB in Scotland back in May and are now excited to host an ‘Open Day’ to launch our rebranded business and showcase our new premises on the day of the finals. It will mean so much to us to be surrounded by friends, family and clients when the national winner is announced and to have the opportunity to celebrate just how far we have come since setting up as sole traders 14 years ago.
“Whether or not we win the overall award, we have much to be proud of and are pleased to be marking a new stage in our business journey.”
The business decided during the pandemic that it was time to expand and establish larger premises. Subdivisions were set up including KW Bathrooms, KW Kitchens and KW Project Management.
Mrs Wilson added, “The past year has been our worst ever – and of course it’s been difficult for everyone working in the building trade. We were shut down for six months in total – from mid-March until June last year and then again from late December 2020 until April this year. The lockdown did give us time to think though and we realised our name, Kevin Wilson Joiners & Contractors, no longer reflected how our business has changed over the years to cover all the building trades.
“We wanted to highlight the fact that we are Master Builders who can deal with every part of a building project for clients and can also advise and help them when it comes to sourcing architects and surveyors. It seemed a natural fit to make changes and embrace the next step of our journey as we grow and take on bigger and better jobs. Having our own larger premises, which clients can visit and which gives our team a proper base, is also a step forward. We’re also looking to expand our team and find the best workers in the business to join us.”
The Wilsons have transformed their new premises with a reclaimed mezzanine level which they sourced, dismantled and re-fitted themselves.
The site features a reception area and an office for Mrs Wilson and the firm’s new administrator, Louise Anderson, to work from plus a workshop, storage areas and a second office upstairs.
Mrs Wilson added, “After surviving a difficult year with Covid and all the restrictions, we’re proud to be showcasing our new offices and celebrating with family and friends. This is a new chapter for us and we’re now looking forward to achieving our goals and getting the firm ready for the next 14 years.”
