The Charles Godfrey Memorial Award for Innovation is given every year to a product that has brought significant innovation to the building industry- and the Korniche Aluminium Roof Lantern has been awarded this prestigious award for 2018.
Roger Bisby who tested the Korniche earlier in the year commented: “The first thing I saw was the packaging. Every builder knows the frustration of having items arrive on site with damage. It slows the job down and causes hassle for the manufacturer - and the customer. Often there is a knock-on effect because other trades are unable to get on. With this Lantern, everything arrived in perfect condition. The next thing is the instruction booklet, which deserves an award on its own. A huge amount of thought and design has gone into this. Every stage is clearly shown with intelligent use of colours to show you the relevant components”.
The company are delighted to have received this award, one that stands by the very values on which the Korniche was conceived - to deliver to builders and installers a product that makes life on site easier and more cost effective, whilst providing a beautiful, architectural lantern look that is contemporary whilst holding on to traditional timber style fitting any home.
Bradley Gaunt, MD says “I’m over the moon with this independent award and Roger’s comments as it puts the product, engineering and design centre stage and applauds the advantages these efforts deliver. In 2019, we continue the innovation delivered in the Korniche Lantern with a new product launch at the FiTShow which we are all very excited about”
The Lantern has already achieved an affinity with both trade and homeowners which will be hard to overturn. No other lantern has the overall winning combinations the Korniche delivers.
