Following two highly successful installations, we are proud to announce that Emerald has been shortlisted in two categories for this year’s GGP Installer Awards 2023.





The Glass and Glazing Products (GGP) magazine’s Installer Awards celebrates the best in quality work, expert design and creativity, as well as noteworthy people and services across the industry. The expert panel of judges includes:

  • Chris Beedel, Director of Membership, FENSA
  • Jon Vanstone, Executive Chair, Certass
  • Dave Mechem, Director of Operations, RISA
  • Brian Smith, Director, BAJSmith Consulting
  • Shaun Bentley, Practical Skills Trainer, Building Our Skills

The categories for which Emerald has been shortlisted are Best Installation – Commercial and Best Installation – Residential (Up to £20,000).

Best Installation – Commercial 

uPVC casement windows installation at Royal Agricultural University in CirencesterEmerald’s place as a finalist in the Commercial category was secured by a challenging yet rewarding installation of 68 uPVC casement windows, replacing original timber frames at the dormitories at Royal Agricultural University in Cirencester during Spring 2022. Despite other double glazing companies quoting twice the University’s budget, Emerald was able to complete the entire job – including two bay and four dormer windows – within budget and to a tight timeframe.

Deceuninck 2800 sculptured casement windows in Golden Oak were chosen to be in keeping with the buildings’ heritage appearance, whilst improving security and providing better insulation to reduce energy and heating costs.


Best Installation – Residential (Up to £20,000) 

To be shortlisted in the Residential (Up to £20,000) category, Emerald completed an installation of 17 Infinity flush casement windows and two French doors to a characterful home in Fairford, Gloucestershire in February 2022. With Emerald’s advice and following a visit to our Swindon showhome, the customer chose modern uPVC windows in Agate Grey (externals) and Heritage White (internals) with black handles. The style of the product combined replicating traditional timber with the use of square leaded glass meant the replacements were in keeping with the property whilst increasing energy efficiency and security, as per the customer’s brief.

Emerald was able to complete the entire installation process within the space of one week, minimising hassle for the customer. Following completion, Deceuninck saw images of the project on social media and arranged for its own photography to be taken.

At Emerald Windows & Doors, we are very proud of the hard work and expert advice that goes into all our projects, but we are especially pleased that these two particular projects have been recognised and secured us spots on the shortlist of this year’s GGP Awards.

This is testament to each member of our team’s passion and care for what they do, ensuring our customers receive the best service regardless of the scale of the job, and that their budgets and timeframes are respected at all times.

We are looking forward to seeing lots of familiar faces at the finals event, and wish all the other shortlisted entrants the very best of luck.

The GGP Installer Awards 2023 final is due to be held on Thursday 16th March 2023 at The Midland Hotel, Manchester.
