Community benefit award

After the transformation of the West Cliff Theatre in Clacton-on-Sea, established installer SEH BAC has won an award from the National Home Improvement Council (NHIC).

The firm won the ‘Delivering Community Benefit Through Home Improvement’ Award. The West Cliff Theatre was the winner of SEH BAC’s Community Giveaway competition, receiving £10,000 worth of new windows and a much-needed new lease of life.

John Savage, managing director of SEH BAC, said: “For us to see the fantastic West Cliff Theatre restored to its former glory and ready to entertain many more generations to come, was already a special reward. We are proud to not only support our customers through our home improvements, but to also support important and cherished community buildings just like West Cliff.”

The firm, which is part of Suffolk-based One Group Construction, a £130 million turnover group of companies which complete major construction projects, currently holds two NHIC Awards: it picked up the Best Glazing Project Award in 2014, and the 2015 Double Glazing with Community Benefit Award.

The Community Giveaway competition was designed to find a community building in desperate need of SEH BAC’s help. Receiving no government funding and mainly run by volunteers and donations, The West Cliff Theatre in Clacton was a worthy winner. SEH BAC replaced the dilapidated windows of the theatre with new PVCU alternatives, helping to reduce its running costs and give a vital facelift.
