GRAF UK celebrates awards season achievements

Posted by Callum Vallance-Poole, on July 26, 2019.

With the 2016 industry awards season in full swing, it’s been a busy time for us here at Graf UK.

One of the highlights for us was being shortlisted in the Build It Awards’ “Best Plumbing or Drainage Product” category for our integrated Platin / Minimax Pro rainwater harvesting system. The Graf UK team attended the awards ceremony (organised by self-build magazine Build It and hosted by actor, writer and comedian Tim Vine) at London’s Hilton Bankside along with customers, and a good evening was had by all.

Dinner, selfies and an exciting year ahead

Managing director Matthew Rolph says: “Although we were pipped to the post this year, it is a huge achievement to have been shortlisted alongside some big industry names for such a respected accolade. We are delighted to see our rainwater harvesting systems have gained this much recognition amongst our industry peers – and to have gotten a selfie with Tim Vine! We had a great night networking at the awards dinner, and with some exciting growth plans for the coming year, we look forward to an even more fruitful 2017 awards season!”

Graf UK’s Platin tank and Minimax Pro package

The shortlisted Platin tank and in-built Minimax Pro filter package provides a sustainable and reliable non-potable water supply for toilets, washing machines, garden hoses and much more. The system feeds filtered rainwater through to the Platin tank for storage and re-use, whilst any debris collected by the Minimax Pro filter flows into the property’s drain.* This ensures a water yield of more than 95%, whilst still removing foreign objects that would otherwise create blockages.

Last but not least…

Besides being shortlisted for the Build It Awards, we’re proud to announce that Graf UK also won two further awards this season. Namely, these were: “Best for Rainwater Harvesting System 2016 – UK & Ireland” in the Construction & Engineering Awards, and “Best Recyclable Rainwater Solutions Firm 2016 – Oxfordshire” in the Sustainable Building Awards. Let’s hope our winning streak continues into next year and beyond!
