Two awards for Redrow at 'the Oscars' of the housebuilding industry

Flintshire based housebuilder Redrow Homes has been recognised with a brace of national honours at the 2012 What House? Awards.

Well-known for providing high quality family homes and outstanding customer service, Redrow scooped silver awards in the categories of Best Large Housebuilder and Best House.

Known as ‘the Oscars’ of the industry, the What House? Awards recognise the achievements of home builders nationwide.

Redrow has consistently performed well at these awards and this year’s accolades follow on from the company’s success in 2011, when it won the Best Large Housebuilder gold award, and in 2010 when it won silver.

Kim Peters, sales and marketing director for Redrow Homes, said: “It’s truly an honour to attend this annual event where the house building industry has its chance to shine. We recognise that there’s more to this business than building and selling homes. We want to create homes people really want to live in; deliver traditional style with a modern specification; and provide a level of service that means so many of our customers will happily recommend us. Winning these awards gives us the motivation to continue striving to be the best at what we do.”

The Best House silver award was for The Villas at The Walpole Collection, in Ealing, West London.

Judges said: “Redrow does high-quality family housing with aplomb, tradition with a twist of style, cutting to the chase by building what the modern buyer wants – an obvious retail aim, but one surprisingly not always adhered to, no matter the industry.”

“But it is no stickler for tradition, making bold, design statements where appropriate to lift the product and do justice to the location and the buyer profile. Top brands decorate its interiors, as do innovative uses of space.”

In a nod to the firm’s commitment to staff development, judges added: “Redrow has always championed apprentices and graduate trainees, recognising that any company is only as good as its people.

“It continues to make marketing waves with its innovative campaigns, top quality website and engaging Redrow TV. Customer satisfaction rates remain extremely high, with Redrow always looking to tailor initiatives and packages to buyers’ needs.”

Other recent award wins for Redrow have included the title of best marketing initiative for the ‘Share a little bit of joy’ campaign at the 2012 Housebuilder Awards. It also won a five star award for Best Development and highly commended status in the category of Best Developer Website at the 2012 UK Property Awards.
