Washington Homes Ltd development wins second prestigious construction award

A NEW Washington Homes development in Tallentire has been named among a shortlist of sites in England and Wales to win an award for high standards of construction and site management.

Chestnut Close, 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.

Washington Homes Ltd has already won this prestigious award for their Woodside Park development in Wigton in May this year and Butterfields in Brigham in 2020.

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.

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 standard of workmanship are nominated for a Site Recognition Award.
