Quality Award for Buckley Homes

New homes in Buckley have earned a top award in the 2012 North Wales LABC Building Excellence Awards.

Redrow’s Heathlands development in Church Road was presented with the Flintshire County Council ‘best volume housebuilder’ title.

The awards ceremony, held at the St David’s Park Hotel, in Ewloe, is organised by the building control teams of five Welsh local authorities and recognises developers for the quality of their workmanship, the way they adhere to building regulations, plus safety, site presentation, welfare and other key issues.

Redrow’s award was collected by site manager Steve Jones, who said: “I was really pleased when Heathlands won the award on the night. It’s a busy site and we have built nearly 70 homes in 18 months. We work closely with Flintshire’s building control team and it’s great that they have recognised our achievements in this way.”

Steve has been a site manager with Redrow since 2003, with a short break two years ago when the construction industry experienced a downturn. Now he’s glad to be back doing the job he loves and winning awards.

John Wilkinson, team leader for Flintshire County Council building control, said: “These awards are for builders who have achieved outstanding quality in their construction work relating to building control. Completed projects can range from new homes, extensions and alterations through to commercial developments.

“Heathlands was a worthy winner on a number of fronts. As well as creating a quality product, Redrow has worked with difficult ground conditions on what was previously an old brickworks and has kept us involved every step of the way.”

In 2008, Steve Jones led a team that won the same award for Redrow’s Y Dolydd development at St David’s Park, Ewloe; while, last year, another Redrow scheme -  Pentre Bach in Ruthin Road, Wrexham - took the title ‘best volume housebuilder’ in Wrexham County and went on to win the best in North Wales award too.

Still ongoing, Heathfields in Buckley was one of the first developments to feature Redrow’s hugely popular New Heritage Collection of traditional looking, Arts & Crafts influenced homes which boast bright, modern and family-friendly interiors. And it’s not just building control inspectors who appreciate the workmanship; would-be home owners have also been queuing up to buy.  Current availability includes two, three and four-bedroom homes with prices from £136,995 to £251,995.
