LABC Building Excellence Awards
2020 Regional Finalists
Best Small New Housing Development
Greengate Homes are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted as Regional Finalists in the LABC Building Excellence Awards 2020 in the category Best Small New Housing Development in the East Anglia region.
The Development shortlisted is Home Farm Close. An exclusive development of 4 new build residential dwellings and a conversion of an existing cottage and barn within the village of Swanton Morley, Norfolk.
Acquired in January 2017, the land of approximately an acre consisted of an existing brick barn and cottage and later built detached bungalow.
What followed was an exciting and ambitious development. The existing, poor quality bungalow was demolished. The existing barn and cottage were converted into an annex and large store to accompany one of the 4 individually designed new dwellings.Greengate Homes managed the development process from inception to completion ensuring that the designs incorporated many bespoke details to showcase the skills and workmanship available to us through our exclusive arrangement with our contractor, Bescon.
The finished homes were all completed and sold during 2019.
The East Anglia Regional Building Excellence Awards celebrate the highest quality projects from Cambridgeshire, Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk and reward the best in technical innovation, construction quality, sustainability and creative design.
Rob Webb, Co-owner and Director comments:
“Home Farm Close was Greengate Homes first development and we are incredibly pleased and proud to have been shortlisted for this prestigious industry award. It is a huge compliment to receive so early in the development of Greengate Homes and a testament to the hard work put in by the whole team”
Paul Everall CBE, chief executive at LABC comments:
“These awards are different. They aren’t about good looks or fancy design. They are about quality and standards. No other building awards look at how well buildings are put together from start to finish and the skills and competencies of those who design and construct them. We are very proud of everyone involved – they show the way ahead for the industry.”
Greengate Homes are about to complete their second development, Pastures Grove in Barford, Norfolk. A further exciting exclusive development of 4 detached dwellings.
