A NEW development in Culgaith, Penrith has been named among a shortlist of sites in England and Wales to win an award for high standards of construction and site management.
Otters Holt being built by Willan Living 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.
Situated within close proximity to the Lakes and Dales national parks, Otters Holt, Culgaith offers a relaxing hideaway for modern family style living. With only seven homes left out of the original twenty four this location is selling fast.
Jonathan Willan, Managing Director from Willan Living said: “We’ re delighted to receive The Bricks Site Recognition Award from LABC Warranty. I am especially pleased for our staff working on the site, this is their second award since July last year which truly is a testimony to their continued hard work and dedication.”
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.”
