The developer also won Best House Design for Three Storeys or Fewer at the Housebuilder Awards; an annual event that celebrates the very best in UK housebuilding. The awards are held by the HBF (Home Builders Federation), in partnership with the NHBC (National House-Building Council).
The judges commented that St. Modwen Homes demonstrated a commitment to innovation, improvement and excellence and had an imaginative approach to housebuilding, which in turn has, and will, benefit customers, employees and suppliers alike.
St. Modwen Homes is the housebuilding brand of St. Modwen, the UK’s leading regeneration specialist with more than 25 years’ experience in the property industry. Park View, the residential scheme in Longbridge, was St. Modwen Homes’ first development in the UK.
Guy Gusterson, managing director at St. Modwen Homes, said: “We are delighted to have been named Best Small Housebuilder at the recent Housebuilder Awards.
“To have won this award despite the fact that St. Modwen Homes was formed just over two years ago demonstrates how much the company has achieved in such a short space of time. We now have five active developments across the UK and have sold out at a further two sites in the last few months alone, including Park View in Longbridge. This recognition is testament to the hard work and dedication of the St. Modwen Homes team and our commitment to delivering award-winning homes across the country.”
St. Modwen Homes received the awards for its carefully considered approach to housebuilding, designing each individual house with unique features so that the properties take full advantage of the developments’ surroundings. The judges were impressed by the light and airy feel of the houses, emphasised by floor to ceiling windows, glazing around the front doors and vaulted ceilings in some of the properties.
St. Modwen Homes claimed the award over competition from other long-established developers including Taylor Wimpey, Redrow and Crest Nicholson.
Guy said: “We take great pride in the design of our houses and are delighted that this has been recognised by one of the industry’s leading organisations. Working closely with our architects, we have put in a lot of effort to make sure that our properties boast practical, intelligent and attractive designs, ensuring that they really stand out against others in the marketplace, particularly for the price.”
St. Modwen Homes now has five residential sites located across the UK, including Woodlands Reach in Ravenstone, Littlecombe in Dursley, Edison Place in Rugby and Gregorys Bank in Worcester where a brand new show home has just been opened. Recently, a detailed planning application has been submitted by St. Modwen Homes for 82 more homes in a new phase of housing at Longbridge.
