A NEW Washington Homes development in Bothel has been named among a shortlist of sites in England and Wales to win an award for high standards of construction and site management.
Chapel Meadows, being built by Thomas Armstrong (Construction) Ltd (part of the Thomas Armstrong Group), has been awarded The Bricks Site Recognition Award by LABC Warranty, for its standards of workmanship and overall management of the site, including health and safety matters and general tidiness.
The Bricks Site Recognition Award winners are chosen every month and are then further shortlisted at the end of the year, where only the best of those sites will be rewarded with The Bricks annual award trophy, one of the construction industry’s most prestigious awards given to outstanding sites from England and Wales.
LABC Warranty is one of the largest providers of structural warranties in the UK. Working in partnership with Local Authority Building Control (LABC), its combined team of more than 3,700 surveyors work with house builders, contractors and housing associations.
Sites are scored by LABC Warranty risk management surveyors during their inspection visits, which take place regularly through construction.
Those sites that score consistently high for general co-operation with inspectors, health and safety, site tidiness, standard of site management and standard of workmanship are nominated for a Site Recognition Award.
Chapel Meadows enjoys a lovely setting within Bothel, a village ideally located for enjoying all the area has to offer, whether it be for work, family life, or for the great outdoors. The village lies just outside the Lake District National Park, 7 miles away from Cockermouth, an attractive market town designated as one of just 51 Gem towns in the country.
Chapel Meadows by Washington Homes is an exciting development of 26 high-quality brand-new homes, setting a striking approach to contemporary living. The development includes anything from two to five bedrooms and options of houses, bungalows, semi-detached and detached designs.
David Hill, Development Director from Washington Homes Ltd, said: “We’re delighted to receive The Bricks Site Recognition Award from LABC Warranty. I’m especially pleased for our staff working on the site as this reward is a recognition of their hard work, professionalism and expertise.”
Sarah Sheppard, Technical Director at LABC Warranty, said: “It takes skill, commitment and a dedication to quality of construction for a site to receive The Bricks Site Recognition Award. Nothing pleases my team and I more than to see developments meet and maintain such high standards.”
