The star symbol is often employed to denote the outstanding and special. Many of us remember being awarded stars, in a variety of colours, for outstanding work at school, whilst in business the star is widely recognised as a symbol which highlights excellence. The star is therefore a very fitting tribute to the winners of the BIFM Awards 2014 (British Institute of Facilities Management). EFX designed and manufactured the bespoke trophies, using clear white glass, pierced in the centre and decorated with laser-precision clarity. The winners this year included J+J Flooring (Excellence in Product Development) and Carillion Plc (Large FM Service Provider of the Year), amongst others; they were presented with their personalised trophies at the BIFM Awards 2014, held at The Grosvenor House Hotel, 13th October.
This year, the BIFM was looking to change the style of its annual awards and approached EFX to create something special. Jennifer Rowntree, Events Executive at BIFM explains: “The team at BIFM is thrilled with the trophies designed by EFX. This was the first year we have commissioned a bespoke design, so we didn’t really know what to expect. The options put forward by the EFX designers were all good and met our specified budget. The final design is spot on our brand positioning and a great advert for BIFM”. She also praised the smooth running of the order, appreciating having just one person dedicated to her project, Sophie, which made the whole process simple and straightforward.
