The 2016 winners of the BUILD Construction and Engineering Awards have been announced, and London-based fireplace installers, Real Flame have been awarded Most Creative Fireplace Company 2016.
After completing an adventurous fireplace project at The Ivy Chelsea Garden Restaurant, they were also given the award of Best Commercial Fireplace Project 2016.
The award came after Real Flame were approached by Crown Outdoor Ltd MD to create a design for the outdoor terrace areas of The Ivy Chelsea Garden Restaurant as part of the redevelopment efforts at the restaurant. The fireplace installation company were presented with a number of aims, including the need for traditional and realistic fireplaces at a number of levels of the garden. They were also presented with the challenge to complete the work within a week so as not to disrupt the service of the popular restaurant.
Real Flame Showroom manager Louis Boothman said: “With a project as unique as The Ivy Garden Chelsea, our team had to use their creativity and innovation to create something truly fitting for such a prestigious venue."
"We are extremely proud of the finished result, and it is a testament to the incredible design that we were awarded such an accolade in recognition.
He added: “The project was so successful, the largest retailer of gas log and gas coal fires in Europe has now been tasked with introducing a third gas fire for the next phase of the restaurant's redevelopment.
“This new installation will allow The Ivy Chelsea Garden Restaurant's fountain to perform as such throughout the summer, while transforming into a fire during the milder months.”
