Magna takes 2022 Fensa installation of the year award

With their success announced at the glittering G Awards held in London’s Park Lane, Leicestershire installer Magna Windows Ltd collected the trophy for the 2022 FENSA Installation of the Year competition. 

One of the technical judges Lee Galley, Assessor Manager for inspections and auditing specialist RISA, said of the installation: “I picked this one as it was a high-quality installation that was also in keeping with the design of the property. It would not have been an easy installation the property is old and some areas had suffered from subsidence in the past that had affected the shape of the window apertures. This all had to be taken in to consideration by the surveyor who has done a great job in ensuring that the best possible fit has been achieved. Storm Evolution Rebatedwindows have also been installed with a great deal of care and operate faultlessly.”

FENSA’s Tom Butler added: “The response from the homeowner that triggered the initial entry for Magna was glowing; when our inspectors followed up to consider the technical aspects of the installation, that too was exemplary. Magna epitomises everything that we expect from FENSA Approved installers everywhere and we are proud as an organisation to highlight their commitment to excellence.”

Magna Windows took its name from Wigston Magna, where the firm was established in 1989, and Magna remains a family business serving homes in Leicestershire. For Magna, director Will Cheshire said: “Winning this award is fantastic and you can be certain we will make sure everyone knows! But we approached this installation just the same way that we approach every job…we had no idea we were entered until we were told we had won. We have a fantastic attitude throughout the company; everyone just enjoys doing their job and it all comes together at the customer’s home.”

Launched by FENSA to encourage excellence amongst FENSA Approved installers, installations are automatically entered into the competition following homeowner satisfaction feedback and assuming full Building Regulation compliance. The extensive list is whittled down by FENSA inspectors, with the winner therefore chosen through a balance of customer satisfaction and technical ability. Around 550,000 installations are entered each year by FENSA with no input from the installer, with the winner invited to an all-expenses paid night out at the G Awards in November to receive their trophy. The winning entry is calculated to be worth thousands to the successful installer in terms of positive endorsement of their brand and capabilities.
