Worcestershire building site wins award for quality
Countryside Partnerships, the UK’s leading mixed-tenure developer, has been awarded a prestigious Bricks Site Recognition Award for the consistent quality of workmanship and site management shown at its Broomhall Way development in Worcestershire.
The award was presented by LABC Warranty, which works in partnership with Local Authority Building Control to provide structural warranty services for developers, builders and housing providers.
Once completed, Broomhall Way will feature 92 new one-, two- and three-bedroom homes, all of which will be available for affordable rental. Countryside is working with its partner, Rooftop Housing, which will own and manage all the homes on the site.
They will be built to exceptional standards of sustainability, featuring solar panels and ground-source heat pumps. The Bricks Site Recognition Award winners are chosen every month and are then further shortlisted at the end of the year, where 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.
Sites are scored by LABC Warranty risk management surveyors during their inspection visits, which take place regularly throughout construction.
Those sites that score consistently high for general cooperation with inspectors, health and safety, site tidiness, standard of site management and standard of workmanship are nominated for a Site Recognition Award.
Adam Sharpe, Managing Director, Countryside Partnerships South West Midlands, said: “It’s great to see the hard work of our team on site at Broomhall Way being recognised by a Bricks Site Recognition Award from LABC Warranty. We’re thrilled to get this award which highlights that the workmanship, build quality and management of the site are first rate.”
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.”
